Objective C2: Investigate the Feasibility of a Regional Growth Plan
The following actions are needed to complete this objective:
Based on the provincial context for well managed growth with regard to surrounding regions, continue to investigate a “Regional Approach to Managing Growth” in Windsor/Essex County.
The benefits of such a growth management plan can include:
Service and transportation efficiencies
Coordinated approach to green space linkages
Long term consideration of land use patterns
Attenuating the adverse consequences of rapid growth on areas in the region that are rapidly expanding
Managing population density
Continue discussions and plans to develop a Regional Growth Plan that targets regional trends, green space allocations, transportation planning and growth management
These indicators show the progress the City is making to achieve this objective:
- Regional Growth Plan
- Shared public transit services
