The City of Kitchener is growing, and a lot of that growth is happening in the areas around the ION LRT system.

On March 18, 2024, Kitchener City Council approved the first phase of Growing Together. This included Official Plan Amendments and Zoning By-law amendments to introduce new Strategic Growth Area (SGA) land uses and zones and apply them within seven of Kitchener’s 10 Major Transit Station Areas (MTSAs).

The final phase, Growing Together East, will update the planning framework for the remaining three MTSAs: Block Line, Fairway, and Sportsworld.

This project will enable and encourage responsible growth for many years to come. By participating, you will gain a greater understanding of the factors influencing growth and change in our city and Kitchener’s obligations to plan for this growth.
