Your Markham Road - Mount Joy

What are we doing and why?

The City of Markham's Official Plan 2014 identifies the need for a new secondary plan for the Markham Road - Mount Joy local corridor. The area is imagined to become:

“a mixed-use local corridor that functions as a main street integrating a range of housing, employment, shopping and recreation opportunities, at transit-supportive densities adjacent to the GO station, to serve the adjacent communities of Berczy Village, Wismer Commons, Greensborough and Swan Lake.”

The Markham Road - Mount Joy Secondary Plan Study was started in November 2019 as a first step to preparing 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 Secondary Plan area is located in the northeast portion of the City’s urban area and includes lands along both sides of Markham Road from 16th Avenue in the south to Major Mackenzie Drive East in the north, between the Stouffville GO rail line to the east and the westerly limit of properties fronting Markham Road to the west. The study area extends slightly beyond the Secondary Plan area as shown in the map to the left.

This is YOUR Markham Road - Mount Joy! We want to hear from you to make sure the Secondary Plan reflects the needs and ideas of the people who live, work, shop and play in the community.
