    Vision Georgetown - Leading today, Shaping Tomorrow

    The Vision Georgetown Project

    This 404 ha (1,000 ac) parcel of land will be home to 19,000 residents and provide 1,700 new jobs starting in 2021. See a map of the study area.

    There are two main components of the Vision Georgetown planning project:

    • A land use planning study (known as a secondary plan); and,
    • A subwatershed study which deals with all aspects of the natural environment.

    Completion of these studies will fulfill Phases I and II of the Environmental Assessment process required when planning for transportation and services.


    Project Status

    The Vision Georgetown project is to be carried out in 5 phases and is expected to take about 4 years.

    Phase I was completed in June of 2013.

    We are currently nearing completion of Phase II of the planning study. Please join the mailing list (link below) to be notified when the next public session is scheduled.

    All of the deliverables completed to date are included below. View the documents.







    With the help of our stakeholders, a Vision statement has been prepared to help guide planning in this new community.


    To be the New Community of Choice

    The Vision Georgetown community is an inspiring new urban community; distinctive in the way it looks and functions, fostering healthy lifestyles, neighbourliness, economic prosperity, and local pride.  It is a resilient, sustainable, complete, and compact community, with a thriving natural heritage system.  It feels like a small Town and is physically connected to the broader community of Georgetown and the Town of Halton Hills.  It honours the rich heritage of the Town, emphasizes people, and provides choices for day-to-day living.  Overall, the Vision Georgetown community is an exceptional, forward thinking, and innovative model for new community development.

    There are 14 Guiding Principles that have been established to help achieve the Vision set out for this new expanded area of Georgetown. View the Vision and Guiding Principles. The Vision and Guiding Principles form the framework for decision-making when planning and developing this new community.
