Regional Growth Plan

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
