Official Plan Review

City of Hamilton

SGL was retained by the City of Hamilton to assist in their Official Plan Review. After a multiyear effort to prepare extensive background studies on growth strategy, intensification potential, commercial strategy, employment needs and infrastructure master plans, the City retained SGL to assist with the first phase of the development of an Urban Structure Amendment and the second phase of the commercial policies and employment conversion analysis. The Urban Structure Amendment consisted of a strategic policy document which sets the tone of the Official Plan, implements the strategic policies of the Growth Plan, and sets out policies for the key structural elements of the City, including nodes, corridors, living areas, employment areas, natural areas and the transportation and transit network.
