The City of Hamilton is growing and the population is projected to increase to 660,000 by 2031. While the City has made efforts to grow within it’s current urban boundary, an urban boundary expansion is required to accommodate future population growth. The City invites you to attend a Community Meeting and Workshop for the Elfrida Growth Area Study and Subwatershed Study. The purpose of the meeting is to learn about the studies underway for the area and to help develop a vision and principles for how the future community could develop.

The subwatershed study is intended to present an approach to manage, protect, and enhance the natural environment. This includes stormwater management (quality and quantity), terrestrial and aquatic resources within the Elfrida study area limits. Major issues and opportunities have been identified which provide the basis to guide future growth in an environmentally sound manner. Phase 1 findings of the Study will be available at the Community Meeting. This Study follows the planning and design process defined in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015).

Please join us at one of our Community Meeting sessions to learn about the Elfrida Growth Area Study and the Elfrida Subwatershed Study. The meeting will include a presentation on background information collected for the area.

The findings from the Phase 1 Subwatershed Study will be available to view on information panels and staff will be available to answer questions. Small table group discussions will follow the presentation where attendees will help to craft a vision and design principles that will explore ideas for future growth and development in the study area. This information will be used at the workshop on June 22.
