Simcoe Street North Corridor Land Use, Urban Design and Transportation Study
The Corporation of the City of Oshawa and the Regional Municipality of Durham have undertaken a Study to identify a recommended land use plan, urban design concept/guidelines and transportation system improvements for the Simcoe Street North corridor in Oshawa between Oshawa Creek and Conlin Road. The Study Area is shown shaded on the key plan.
The purpose of this Study was to:
- Provide a land use and urban design planning framework to guide development and design decisions in both the private and public realms for the Simcoe Street North corridor;
- Prepare appropriate Official Plan and zoning by-law amendments, as necessary, to implement the recommended land use plan and urban design guidelines;
- Develop a strategy to address future transportation needs and to satisfy the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for required improvements to Simcoe Street North;
- Prepare a stormwater management and servicing plan; and
- Identify a strategy for addressing off-campus student housing demands and related issues within the study area and surrounding communities.
The study was undertaken in accordance with Schedule C of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment.
On July 17, 2006, City Council approved amendments to the Oshawa Official Plan, Samac Secondary Plan and Zoning By-law 60-94 for most of the study area. The amendments to the Samac Secondary Plan and Zoning By-law 60-94 were appealed and subsequently approved, with modifications, by the Ontario Municipal Board, on August 29, 2007.
