This Land Use Study will lead to guidelines for a series of rail corridor types that will assist City staff when they review development applications adjacent to rail corridors and yards. The study is being conducted in two Phases. Phase 1 is an inventory and information gathering phase with the objective being to obtain a better understanding of what rail infrastructure we have in the City, the nature of rail operations and identify a series of rail infrastructure typologies that will serve as the basis for consultation in Phase 2.

Phase 1 interim Report: City Wide Land Use Study Main Report 08-30-2017 and Appendicies

Informed by the findings of Phase 1, the key objective of phase 2 is to develop guidelines based on the typologies identified. A critical component of Phase 2 will be consultation with rail operators, interested parties, partner divisions, and the public.
