Yonge Street and Davis Drive

Planning for the future of Newmarket

The Regional Municipality of York and the Town of Newmarket are planning for future growth with 33,000 people and 32,000 jobs expected along the Yonge Street and Davis Drive corridors over the next 30 years.

To create high quality streetscapes that blend with the mixed-use, transit-oriented development along the rapidways, York Region and the Town of Newmarket are creating a Streetscape Master Plan. The Master Plan will focus on the portions of Yonge Street and Davis Drive that lead into the urban centres and will include a streetscape plan, detailed design guidelines and an implementation strategy to create a vibrant, green and active corridor with engaging public spaces.

Come see the future for yourself

Wednesday, November 4, 2015 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

This session will provide an opportunity to share your thoughts on the development of the proposed Streetscape Master Plan for the Yonge Street and Davis Drive corridors.

The streetscape design includes raised street tree planters, enhanced crosswalks, street furniture, attractive features, banner poles and public art.

“Creating a vision for these important corridors will ensure residents and visitors can enjoy a safe, attractive and vibrant centre in the Town of Newmarket with excellent opportunities for active transportation.” 
York Region Chairman and CEO Wayne Emmerson
