Intensification plans for Gordon St.

It's a bit tricky to find on the city's website but here's the plan unanimously approved by City Council on April 9 for Gordon Street between Clair and Stone.

  • Yes, we need intensification to address affordable housing by increasing supply.
  • Yes, we need infill to prevent sprawl; but, can Gordon Street handle it?  What's the plan for traffic? 

We need smart development.

It's important for everyone to understand what is coming down the pike and to look at the development of Guelph's South end holistically, not piece by piece. Literally being on the same page will help save time, effort and money for citizens, council and developers.
