The Region is hosting a drop-in, poster board public meeting at Town Hall tonight, October 23 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm to answer questions on the draft Secondary Plan and proposed development around the Casablanca GO station.
The Secondary Plan Area is 178 hectares and includes the lands from Hunter Road to the west, Roberts Road to the east, Lake Ontario to the north and Livingston Avenue (generally) to the south. If you live in Grimsby, this is important stuff.
The purpose of this Secondary Plan is to provide the vision and planning framework that will guide future transit-oriented development and redevelopment in the proposed Grimsby GO Station Area. The plan provides long range policy for the following elements: land use; transportation including walking, cycling, and road infrastructure; municipal infrastructure improvements; urban design and public realm improvements; and, implementation tools and a monitoring program.
These changes to the Official Plan and new Secondary Plan will impact everyone in Grimsby for many years to come.
This is your chance to have your say. Once finalized and approved, there will be very limited opportunity to change the direction these plans set.
Find out more about:
- How the Livingston Ave extension and the “South Station access via Livingston Ave ” fit into the short-term plan.
- What is planned around the Irish Grove Woodlot area.
- How much, how high, and how dense the plan is for intensification and new development for the potential 4,750 new residents.
- Plans for active transportation, parking, road improvements and streetscapes
- When it will all happen – short, medium and long term timelines.

“Regional Council is committed to ensuring that the development of the areas surrounding the proposed GO stations responds to the needs of local communities and neighbourhoods. The Secondary Plans are intended to help us maximize the economic benefits of the growth that will occur from the development of the station sites. We look forward to working with our local communities as we plan for the arrival of regular GO Train service.”
