On July 2, 2014, Council directed administration “to conduct a corridor study for Norwood Boulevard so that Council can consider adopting updated land use, transportation and design policy for the area.”
There is a good reason to study Norwood Boulevard. The Norwood Boulevard corridor is in need of renewal. It has never enjoyed a coherent vision for its future.
Ward, neighbourhood and plan boundaries have always divided the area and, as a result, no study has ever considered the whole corridor in a holistic manner.
Also, with the development of the new Kingsway/Royal Alex LRT Station, there exists a great opportunity to link Kingsway/Royal Alex and Stadium LRT stations with a comprehensive corridor.
