Notice of Study Completion 

Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for the Holland Street East and Holland Street West Corridor Study (Update)

About The Study

The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury has completed the Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Study for Holland Street East and West. The Study area extends from Professor Day / Melbourne Drive, east to Dissette Street / Marshview Boulevard (refer to Study area map below).


The Process / Purpose

The Schedule ‘C’ MCEA Study for the Holland Street East and Holland Street West Corridor (Update) followed Phases 1 through 4 of the MCEA process. The EA study is a key component to revitalizing the Town’s downtown core and transforming it into an inviting, accessible, and people-friendly shopping district that will serve as a destination location for
residents and visitors to enjoy.

The recommendations from the Schedule ‘C’ MCEA Study for the Holland Street East and Holland Street West Corridor Study (Update) were determined and refined through the MCEA process. Through this process, the Town confirmed the needs, problems, and/or opportunities; developed, evaluated and selected preferred alternative planning solutions;
developed and evaluated design alternatives; selected the preferred design; examined impacts on the social, cultural, and natural environments; and identified measures to mitigate those impacts. This process has been documented in an Environmental Study Report.
