Established Neighbourhoods Compatibility Study

Newmarket is poised for growth. Most is anticipated to occur along the Davis Drive and Yonge Street corridors, as well as surrounding existing and planned GO Stations. Neighbourhoods, which are anticipated to remain stable, are also experiencing growth. This has primarily occurred through the creation of new lots and dwellings. This can be done respectfully, but can also occur in a manner which is not compatible with the character of the neighbourhood.

To address these concerns, the Town is undertaking a comprehensive review of all established neighbourhoods. The objective is to identify and characterize neighbourhoods throughout Newmarket, and to develop and implement policies to guide future development, while addressing neighbourhood character and compatibility.

We Want to Know: As a resident of Newmarket, how do you define, interact-with and characterize your neighbourhood?

Get involved by:

  • Tell us about the character of your neighbourhood;
  • Walk us through a typical week in your neighbourhood;
  • Tell us about your neighbourhood;
  • Show us your neighbourhood; and
  • Visit our website for more information.

What does neighbourhood character mean to you? When thinking about your neighbourhood, what best describes its character? Is the character of your neighbourhood stable, or is it changing over time? If so, how? Please tell us in the space provided.
