Multi-Modal Transportation Master Plan Adopted by Council
On December 18, 2019, Town Council approved and adopted the Multi-Modal Transportation Master Plan, bringing an end to a 12-month master plan exercise. Staff is now tasked with establishing a priority for the recommended projects outlined in the master plan, submit annual proposal lists for consideration in during yearly budget deliberations, and work on efficient methods to incorporate the master plan into the new Official Plan for the Town of Midland.

Transportation Master Plan project page on Engaging Midland, and/or at our upcoming Public Meeting on Thursday, October 24 at the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre (527 Len Self Boulevard, Midland).
Draft Multi-Modal Transportation Master Plan
The current Transportation Master Plan (TMP) provides an assessment of the Town’s transportation improvement needs to the 2030 horizon and provides recommendations for operational design and transportation policies that the Town uses to manage its transportation infrastructure.
Many of the short term recommendations from the current TMP have been implemented, while many of the longer term recommendations have yet to be initiated and will be subject to review as part of this plan update.
During the last 6 years there have been updates to municipal growth forecasts, changes to municipal policy, and other ongoing transportation initiatives in the community. There is a continuing need to balance infrastructure requirements with the financial resources of the municipality. The Town of Midland has therefore initiated a Transportation Master Plan Update (TMPU) to re-evaluate the planned network in relation to changing trends, emerging needs, and new opportunities for multiple modes of transportation including driving, transit, cycling, and walking.
