The Municipality of Clarington has initiated a new secondary plan for the employment lands located in the south end of Courtice (north of Highway 401). Theses lands also include the future Courtice GO Station and the surrounding Major Transit Station Area.
The Courtice Employment Lands and Major Transit Station Area Secondary Plan will guide this area’s growth as it transforms into a major employment, mixed-use, and transportation hub for Courtice. One of the main drivers of this change will be the future GO train station and related transit-oriented development (TOD), said a municipal statement.
The absence of sanitary sewers in south Courtice has prevented development from occurring before now. The construction of a new trunk sewer along Trulls Road to Bloor Street is now underway. The provision of municipal services and the creation of the GO train station are expected to be the primary catalysts that will spark the growth of this underdeveloped area, it said.
The municipality is organizing an online Public Information Centre for residents to share ideas and learn about the framework that will be used to re-imagine the future of this area.
