Mulock Station Area Secondary Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town of Newmarket has been developing the Mulock Station Area Secondary Plan. This project will plan for change around the future Mulock GO Station. We want to hear from you and get your feedback on the project!

There will be opportunities to share your thoughts with us throughout the project. By signing-up to follow this project we'll be able to keep you informed of the study’s progress and future opportunities to provide us with feedback and advice. Use the Stay Informed Button to the right to sign up!

You can help us develop the Plan by letting us know what is working well in the station area and what you would like to see in the future.

This Secondary Plan will guide growth and change around the future station, helping to create a transit-supportive community. Transit-supportive communities are well connected, have a mix of uses, parks and retail stores to support more people living and working in the area. They are designed to be pedestrian-friendly, encouraging walking between the transit station and the places people live and work.

Some of the things that we’re looking for your feedback on are:

  • Existing parks and open spaces and where you might like to see new parks and open spaces
  • Existing trails and connections and where you might like to see new trails and connections
  • Existing street networks and where you might like to see new streets
  • Existing buildings and where you might like to see different land uses (e.g. new residential uses, new commercial uses) and buildings (e.g. taller buildings, lower buildings)

Upcoming Public Input Opportunity:

We have refined the draft concept for how the Mulock Station Area can change. Refinements have been made to the proposed land uses, building height and density permissions on and around the future Mulock GO station. Please join us and tell us how we can further strengthen the draft concept.

When: Tuesday, February 4, 2020 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (drop-in anytime)

Where: Municipal Office Lobby, 395 Mulock Drive

    What will happen to the existing businesses on Kent Drive?

    Vallut asked 9 months ago

    Thank you for your question. Existing businesses can remain until the lands get redeveloped. In the current draft Secondary Plan, some of the existing uses such as commercial, office etc. will be permitted as part redevelopment. Uses that are not permitted in the Secondary Plan will have to be relocated to other areas.

    What’s the status f mulock go station plan? I am expecting it comes into real. It’s critical for the commuters live in Newmarket. Please keep me updated, juliazhang@live.ca. thanks

    Jz asked 10 months ago

    Thank you for your question. The GO Station itself is a separate project led by Metrolinx. We don't know the timing of the station at this point - it depends on the market and third-party partnerships to make this happen. 

    The preparation of the Secondary Plan, which will provide policy framework to guide future development in this area, is underway. We have an upcoming Public Information Centre on February 4, 2020 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Municipal Office Lobby. Please join us and tell us what you think of the draft concept.

    Hi is the station still on schedule to be built by 2024? We are so excited for this! Thank you!

    Dom asked about 1 year ago

    Hello! Thank you for your question! 

    At the end of 2018 Metrolinx decided to take a new approach to the creation of new stations. They will now be privately initiated. Each station's development would be completed in partnership with third-parties (e.g., adjacent property owners, developers) in exchange for certain development rights around, and/or over, each station.  This approach relies heavily on market demand, and the timing is wholly up to a proposal from a landowner coming forward. 

    The new approach does not change the Town’s intentions for proceeding with the Mulock Station Area Secondary Plan; in fact, because the Metrolinx Board has approved a market-driven approach, it only places greater importance on having the Secondary Plan policy framework in place in order to better promote the area.

    Hello Adrian, what is the status of the Mulock Go station, As per Newmarket Mulock GO Schedule, Statutory Public Meeting was supposed to held on Sep 16th. Could you please give us some information about the meeting. Thanks, Behzad

    Behzad asked about 1 year ago

    Hello Behzad - Thank you for your question!  The Secondary Plan project is progressing well; however we are now targeting early 2020 for the statutory Public Meeting (likely January or February).  We will be able to refine the date over the course of the next couple of months.  Thank you for bringing this up, we've updated the website accordingly.

    Please note that this response is specific to the Secondary Plan propject, rather than the station itself.   

    Thanks again,

    Adrian

    Hello: I note there is construction close to Steven Court - what is the status of the Mulock GO -there is no update on the project website. Thanks

    Elena asked over 1 year ago

    Hi - Thanks for the question.  The current construction (driveway paving) is unrelated to station development or the Secondary Plan study. The Secondary Plan is progressing well; the final draft Concept Plan has been prepared and will be posted online over the coming weeks.  The statutory public meeting is anticipated for early fall, 2019. 

    Thanks for checking in,

    Adrian

    Hi, Are you allowing Mid-rise on Mulock street in the secondary plan area ! Thanks.

    simfall123 asked almost 2 years ago

    Hello and thank you for your question.  Yes, the objective for the Secondary Plan is to allow a greater range of land uses, and building heights / densities (such as mid-rise) along Mulock Drive, but also throughout the remainder of the study area.  The effect of this will be to support the GO Station and develop in a way that makes the most efficient use of land and resources.

    Thanks again,

    Adrian

    In the Secondary Plan it shows a proposal for mid rise mixed use development where Aurora-Newmarket Community Living and Inn from the Cold are located. Can you please confirm that these organizations are going to be consulted directly? They are essential services for the most vulnerable in our community and I don't want to see them being pushed to cheaper real estate like Harry Walker Parkway because we value commuters more than we value our vulnerable residents in the area. We need this plan to integrate with the organizations' individual growth.

    Claire Robins asked almost 2 years ago

    Hello - Thanks for the great question! To be clear, there is no intent to have social services relocated to other areas of Town, in fact, one of the Secondary Plan's Guiding Principles is to "Strengthen the existing network of social services within the study area".  In order to meet the intent of this Guiding Principle, the future designation(s) of the area will be one that not only permits these uses, but encourages additional, similar uses to locate in the area.  

    As the Secondary Plan progresses, we will be hosting additional engagement sessions with landowners and the public at large for input on potential land uses, among other items.  Please check back regularly for the latest info!

    Thanks again,

    -Adrian

    I know we are talking about Mulock Station. But cannot stop thinking on what will it happen, if anything, with the Davis Go Station? Is there any consideration of the time it will add to the overall commute down to Union station? Thank You.

    LuisAllegretti asked about 2 years ago

    Hello, thank you for your question.  The GO station on Davis Drive (the Newmarket GO Station), will remain.  In fact, various improvements are planned for that station over the coming years intended to better connect the station with the surrounding area, particularly with the Main Street Rapidway Station.  These improvements are documented in the recently approved Mobility Hub Study, available here: https://www.newmarket.ca/gotransitexpansion

    It is intended that any additional journey time resulting from the additional stations along the line will be offset by the electrification of the line (resulting in faster trains), level boarding (which reduces time spent at stations) and possible service plan changes.

    Thanks again!

    I must have missed something as I have no idea where the proposed Mulock station is going to be. Could you please provide this information so I can comment on the town's secondary plan?

    Mary T asked about 2 years ago

    Hello - Thanks for your question!  Information on the Mulock Station - including a preliminary concept - can be found on the project's main website, here: https://bit.ly/2NYJoa3  Thanks again and we look forward to your feedback!
