The streetscape master plan concept development work is being undertaken by staff and an external consultant with community input and advice being provided by the Historic Unionville Community Vision Committee (HUCVC). To date, background analysis, a review of issues and opportunities, and a number of concepts have been prepared (as outlined in the Preliminary Study Report).

In November 2018, Markham Council directed staff to seek feedback on Concepts 1 and 2 (below left and right) as well as obtain advice on appropriate streetscape components. A community meeting/open house and consultation with the Unionville BIA and Heritage Markham Committee are being undertaken in early 2019.









Purpose:

  • The objective of the streetscape master plan study is to develop a new streetscape that addresses the needs of residents, visitors and local business operators, and enhances the pedestrian experience while protecting the heritage character of the area.
  • The purpose of the study is to establish a streetscape plan and design direction to strengthen the sense of place and improve the physical attractiveness of the commercial Main Street. This will enrich the experience of living, shopping and doing business in the area through improved traffic movements, landscaping and street furniture.
  • The intent of the study is to establish detailed design and costing associated with an improved streetscape for the commercial core area. The overall project is to be undertaken in three phases: Phase 1 – Master Plan Concept Development, Phase 2 – Detailed Design Drawings, and Phase 3 – Implementation.
