The City of Markham is undertaking a study to inform the development of a new secondary plan for the Markville Community.

What are we doing and why?

The City of Markham's Official Plan 2014 identifies the need for a new secondary plan for Markville.

The City of Markham has initiated the Markville Secondary Plan Study to inform the preparation of a new Secondary Plan. The study will address land use and urban design, transportation and municipal servicing to support the development of a sustainable and complete community.

The study area is approximately 110 hectares and consists of the Markville Key Development Area, and within it, the Bullock Drive Employment Area. Key Development Areas are intensification areas supported by transit that can accommodate a variety of housing choices and employment opportunities.

Markville is centrally located in the City’s urban area, supported by key destinations such as the CF Markville Mall, Centennial Community Centre, and the Centennial GO station. The Secondary Plan area as shown in purple is imagined to become a mixed-use key development area comprising employment and residential development in single use and mixed use settings, providing for office, retail, service, entertainment and recreational uses, and a variety of higher density housing types. The Bullock Drive Employment Area as shown in blue will continue to be protected for employment uses.
