In November 2011, the Region of Peel initiated a Schedule “C” Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with the Municipal Engineers Association’s Municipal Class EA process for improvements to Steeles Avenue, from Chinguacousy Road to Winston Churchill Boulevard. The approximate limits of the project area are illustrated on the map.
The study will examine the need and feasibility for improvements to Steeles Avenue to address the short and long term issues related to planned future growth, road design and function up to 2031.
The Class EA process includes:
- public and agency consultation;
- an evaluation of road improvement alternatives;
- an assessment of the possible environmental effects of the improvements, and,
- the identification of reasonable means to mitigate any adverse impacts.
Public Information Centre
Two Public Information Centres (PICs) are planned for this study. The first PIC will use an informal drop-in centre format with display boards to present the study background information including:
- a problem statement;
- an evaluation of planning alternatives, and,
- a recommended planning alternative.
The Project Team members will be present to answer questions and discuss the next steps in the study. The first PIC is scheduled for:
