2015 Plan Adoption
- On Saturday, January 30, 2016, City Council approved MPA2015-0007 ( Ordinance 4998) to include additional information regarding land uses and implementation, as well as to amend the plan boundary to include 413 and 415 Hume Ave. Council also approved Text Amendment 2016-0006 and Rezoning #2015-0004 to establish CDD #24.
- On Saturday, October 17, 2015, City Council unanimously approved the Planning Commission recommendation to adopt the Oakville Triangle/Route 1 Corridor Vision Plan and Urban Design Standards & Guidelines with the following amendment: Delete 7.14 from the Design Standards (p. 98-99).
At the January 2014 City Council work session on the proposed FY 2015 interdepartmental planning work program, staff indicated that the owner of Oakville Triangle would like to redevelop their 13 acre (approximate) property. The owner, an entity owned by The Blackstone Group, agreed to fund consultant services and staffing so that the City could begin planning and process the associated applications beginning in FY 2014. The scope of the planning effort and the Oakville Triangle/Route 1 Corridor Plan Boundary included Oakville Triangle and adjacent properties as well as the Route 1 corridor north and south of the site. Staff assembled background information on the planning area to assist members of the community as the process got underway. The City Council appointed Advisory Group and community assisted in developing Plan principles for the site regarding potential land uses, open space, sustainability, transportation and connectivity, and potential community benefits, among other topics. The corridor study reviewed features such as streetscaping, undergrounding of utilities, and potential redevelopment sites along the western portion of Route 1. The corridor study helped to establish a unified streetscape for Route 1 and an integrated approach to potential redevelopment along Route 1.
