Vaughan Mills Centre Public Realm and Streetscape Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Vaughan is undertaking a study to develop the Vaughan Mills Centre Public Realm and Streetscape Plan, which will serve as a comprehensive reference guide to promote high-quality public spaces – both publicly and privately-owned –and a pedestrian-oriented streetscape development in the area.

The space around Vaughan Mills mall – known as the Vaughan Mills Centre – and the lands between Highway 400 and Weston Road south of Rutherford Road include places that are, or will be, accessible to all who travel to and through the area for work or leisure. This refers to streets, lanes, public squares, plazas, sidewalks, cycling lanes, trails, future parks, open spaces and connections to conservation areas.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

I think it looks good but there must be some roundabouts for the small intersections, rather than outdated four way stops.

The more trees and naturalized settings for birds and wildlife the better. Please, bring back the green--Toronto has more trees in its developed areas than Vaughan does!

Please provide a dedicated pedestrian/cycling paths through the Vaughan Mills parking lot, so the mall can be easily accessed from Jane/Rutherford.

Looks great, plan certainly has the community in mind.

Looks amazing! Definitely in favour of protected cycling lanes and pedestrian walkways amongst green canopies and native landscaping. Use of ornamental grasses produce an easy to maintain beautiful vision. Linden trees that are stunning, airy and beautiful and appear to do well in our climate. There's a raised area of Linden tree planting at Toronto's harbourfront that's striking (although likely planted far too close together).

1. Use high-quality pavers
2. Use beautiful lighting
3. Create an identity for this non-place

The more green frame the better! Keep planting trees, native shrubs, and flowers. Love the idea of pedestrian-friendly! We need to get away from suburban sprawl and car dependency. The emphasis must focus on a Walkable City. Make public transit convenient. Love the Black Creek Common. Going forward, please include the Missing Middle into the plan and what may be done to encourage the construction of apartments that are family-friendly?
