Kitchener's community plans are prepared for large areas undergoing new development and are intended to facilitate and coordinate decisions regarding:
- Location of community facilities
- Transportation networks
- Subdivision of land
- Distribution of densities
- Protection of the natural environment
- Timing and staging of growth
- Land use arrangement
Community plans have no legal status under the Planning Act of Ontario; however, they must conform to both the city's Official Plan and the Regional Official Plan.
These plans are adopted by city council, and are subject to the approval of Waterloo regional council when they are deemed to affect matters of provincial or regional significance.
Community plans are then repealed by city council once the areas affected by they are substantially completed.We offer the following community plans, which include text and maps, for your information:
