The Municipality of Clarington said as part of the North Village Secondary Plan, an Environmental Assessment (EA) is being undertaken for new or modified major roads, including a proposed realignment of Regional Road 17 to Concession Road 3.
North Village is designed to be a vibrant neighbourhood. Walkable and welcoming, it will reflect the rich community spirit of Newcastle, said the municipality.
It said these road projects are subject to Schedule ‘C’ of the Municipal Class EA process. The EA will be completed using the integrated approach, which will ensure that North Village Secondary Plan and the Regional Road 17 realignment are completed simultaneously, providing the necessary supporting documents, public consultation and alternative options for both projects. The Notice of Commencement was issued on November 3, 2021. This public information centre is progressing as part of the Integrated Class EA process.
The municipality has called an online or via phone public meeting on Thursday, March 30 at 6:30 pm.
The Public Information Centre #4 will allow residents to learn about the emerging land use plan, including the location of parks, schools, and different forms of housing for the North Village Secondary Plan area. Share your feedback on the design, and help shape the future of north Newcastle, the municipality said. Register at www.clarington.net/NorthVillage.
