The City of Kitchener Planning Department anticipates leading a review of Olde Berlin Town in the Civic Centre’s Secondary Plan winter 2018-2019. Your input is welcome and needed to ensure we make the right choices for our community.
What are Secondary Plans?
“Secondary Plans are detailed neighbourhood scale Plans. They are prepared because the general policies directing City-wide growth and development are not detailed enough to address specific issues in an individual neighbourhood” (from Kitchener Official Plan, Part 3, Section 12, Page 1).
How Can You Get Involved?
- Keep your eyes open for the official announcement of the beginning of the review. We will endeavor to post the announcement on the website.
- Prepare by observing the review process. The Victoria Park Secondary Plan review is expected to begin Tuesday, December 4th, 2018 from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at the Victoria Park Pavilion, 80 Schneider Avenue. We will endeavor to share further details.
- Be informed of the more general land-use planning documents that contextualize the Secondary Plans. The land-use documents can be found at the City of Kitchener website. Below is a list of some key planning documents as related to the Olde Berlin Neighbourhood:
