The City of Brampton is growing and residents play a role in determining what the city could look like in years to come. This month residents have the opportunity to provide their feedback on five projects.

Light Rail Transit Extension
Until July 31, residents are encouraged to visit a virtual open house and provide their feedback on the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Extension. Extending the planned Hurontario LRT on Main Street, from the Brampton Gateway Terminal at Steeles Avenue to the Brampton GO Station, is a key transit priority and city-building project for the city. A preferred route will be recommended based on a number of criteria associated with the natural, social, economic and cultural environment as well as transportation factors.
Williams Parkway Review
The city is building streets to meet the needs of its residents. A survey on the Williams Parkway Review is available online until August 1. Residents can comment on what is most important to them: a wider pedestrian path, safer bike path, dedicated transit lane or more road space for cars.
Vodden Street East/West Cycling Corridor
Outlined as a key priority in the Brampton 2040 Vision, the city is building a continuous and connected east-west cycling corridor with separated bike lanes. This cycling corridor will provide cyclists with a more comfortable and safe cycling option and provide access to existing north-south trails. Residents can learn more and share feedback on approximately 7 kilometres of cycling facilities along Vodden Street, Howden Boulevard and Hanover Road. The survey will remain open until July 31.
Third Transit Facility
Brampton Transit is one of Canada’s fastest-growing transit networks. In order to keep up with the rapid growth in demand, the city is planning a third transit maintenance and operations facility. A virtual open house is available online until July 15 for the public to learn more about the project and provide feedback.
