metrolink public meetingdecember2015
We would like to thank everyone who attended our last informal information session. Your feedback and comments have been gathered, and we would like to invite you to another Community Meeting to discuss work to improve the Stouffville GO rail corridor between Kennedy Road in Markham and Marilyn Avenue in Scarborough.
At our last meeting you raised a number of questions, and we would like to address these questions at our next meeting.
Some of the questions were:
- What will the noise walls look like, when will they be installed and why can’t they go in before construction begins?
- How will this project affect my property?
- How will my property be safeguarded against damages?
- When will construction begin at the Agincourt Station and what will be done there?
- When will the grade separations begin and where? How will this impact the community?
- How will Smart Track be integrated?
Your comments and our responses are posted on our website, metrolinx.com/RERscarboroughmarkham.
We will be holding another community meeting on Tuesday, December 8. Please join us to learn more about construction on this segment of the railway corridor. We will share plans about work near your home, including the recommended designs for noise walls, and we welcome the opportunity to address any further questions you may have.

- Re-designate the balance of the lands within the Steeles-Redlea Regeneration Area, being the Milliken GO station lands at 39 Redlea Avenue; vacant lands municipally known as 3447 Kennedy Road (rear); and industrial lands used and owned by Anchor Shoring and Caissons Ltd. and municipally known as 0f Redlea Avenue, from ‘Regeneration Areas’ to ‘Employment Areas’;
- Amend Schedule 2 to the Official Plan to add two new planned but unbuilt road links from Kennedy Road to east of Redlea Avenue to the Milliken Go Station;
- Amend Site and Area Specific Policy 395 to establish policies intended to support a development framework for the area that, among other matters, requires new development to provide office employment uses and for the provision of new public streets and pedestrian connections to create greater accessibility to the Milliken GO station; and
- Delete existing Site and Area Specific Policy 104 from lands bounded by Steeles Avenue East, Kennedy Road, Midland Avenue and Passmore Avenue and to add a new Site and Area Specific Policy 497 to recognize four existing places of worship within this area.
Urban Design Guidelines, including a Conceptual Masterplan, for the Steeles-Redlea area are also proposed in order to guide future development on lands in proximity to the Milliken GO station.
