Queen Street Master Plan

Queen Street is a major east-west road running through the city of Brampton and becoming Highway 7 in York Region’s City of Vaughan. It is a key arterial link to major centres beyond Brampton’s boundaries. The City of Brampton is looking to a long-term revitalization and urbanized intensification along this corridor and transit service along this route will play a critical role in the development of this area.

Riverwalk

Downtown Brampton lies within the Etobicoke Creek floodplain. Provincial policies around hazard management restrict the type and amount of development that can occur there today. Riverwalk will be a transformative opportunity to help revitalize Brampton’s downtown and make it healthy, sustainable and resilient.
