Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Cambridge is looking for additional public feedback on a Streetscape Plan and Urban Design Guideline project for the Milling Road area in Hespeler Village. The objective of this project is to create a shared future vision through an urban design guideline document specific to this unique street of Hespeler. Milling Road is considered to have a high degree of potential for revitalization.

This page serves two purposes:

  1. Gather initial public feedback about the Milling Road area to compliment the stakeholder engagement meetings. (Completed)
  2. Host a virtual Public Information Centre for viewing the final draft guidelines and streetscaping concepts for public comment. (Beginning June 28)

To date, three stakeholder meetings have been completed and 278 responses received from the initial public engagement through the EngageCambridge platform. Utilizing this feedback, draft Urban Design Guidelines and Milling Road Streetscape concepts have been developed and will be posted here for a virtual EngageCambridge Public Information Centre (PIC).

The City is looking for further feedback from you in the form of a questionnaire starting Monday June 28. This feedback period will run for three weeks. Please review the guidelines and concepts to provide feedback on them. To compliment the questionnaire component of this PIC, a virtual drop-in session is being organized for Wednesday, July 7th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Register in advance for the virtual drop-in here.

The topics of the questions include reasons for visiting Milling Road, street amenities, types of parking, area theme and culture, wayfinding signage, and safety. There is also a general comments box at the end of the survey where you can provide written feedback on topics that may not have been covered.

This project holds importance to all community members at the heart of downtown Hespeler and the project team values public input in the decision-making process. The project is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2021.
