The City of Welland has initiated the development of a Transportation Master Plan (TMP), City on the Move, to provide the City with long-term road network and active transportation strategies that will support existing needs and accommodate further projected population and employment growth.

The Master Plan will aim to:

  • Connect residential, commercial, and industrial areas effectively and efficiently.
  • Enhance active transportation and improve connectivity.
  • Promote safe, environmentally responsible, and accessible transportation.
  • Promote network links to growth areas, neighbouring municipalities, and key transport corridors.
  • Create a capital plan to meet the City's transportation needs now and in the future.

The study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of Master Plan Approach #1 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. This approach involves the preparation of a Master Plan document after Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process.
