The City of Markham is planning for the future of the Yonge Corridor!

What are we doing?

The City is studying the Yonge Corridor to determine the land use, parks, infrastructure, and community amenities (including schools) needed to support future growth.

Why are we doing it?

The City of Markham’s Official Plan, 2014, identifies two Key Development Areas (KDA) along the Yonge Corridor:

  • Yonge Steeles Corridor KDA
  • Yonge North Corridor KDA

The Yonge Corridor will also be serviced by the Yonge North Subway Extension (YNSE) and includes three Major Transit Station Areas/subway stations within the study area:

  • Steeles;
  • Clark; and
  • Royal Orchard.

A new secondary plan is required to guide future growth and development.

What area is being studied?

The study area is located at the southwest corner of the City of Markham and is bordered by the City of Vaughan to the west and the City of Toronto to the south.
