Caledon's "Complete Community" Will Create 10,000 Jobs



    Proposed Development Allows Residents to Work in their Neighbourhood

    CALEDON, ON, Sept. 25 /CNW/ - A proposed new residential and employment
development in South Albion-Bolton will create more than 10,000 permanent full
time jobs and over $100 million in direct revenue for the Town of Caledon. The
development called "Humber Station Villages" is being proposed by Solmar
Development Corporation.
    "This is a tremendous opportunity for the town of Caledon," said Solmar
Vice President Frank Miele. "It's about quality of life and giving people the
opportunity to work, shop, and go to school all within walking distance from
home. This is a chance for Caledon to become a model for the entire GTA by
approving such a well planned live-work community."
    The proposed community includes 740 hectares of mixed housing north of
Mayfield Road, bounded by Gore Road, Coleraine Drive, and Healey Road. It
includes parks, a public square, community centres, elementary and high
schools, and up to 6,500 housing units for 21,000 residents. It also includes
a restoration plan for the existing valley lands. Phase one of the community
proposal can be readily serviced utilizing the existing infrastructure with no
improvements.
    An important part of the proposal is 250 hectares of employment land for
retail, restaurants, and offices, creating over 10,000 full time jobs. The
proposed development uses leading technology to conserve energy.
    "This is the kind of community our town needs to thrive," added Miele.
"We're creating long term employment opportunities, attracting businesses and
residents to support those businesses. This is a great example of a
sustainable community."
    The proposed development of "Humber Station Villages" follows Ontario's
"Places to Grow" plan. It's a sustainable community with a mix of housing,
services and parks where people will not be reliant on their cars. "Humber
Station Villages" will help Caledon and the Region of Peel meet its population
objectives under Ontario's Growth Plan. Caledon Town Council is now
considering the development application for this complete community.
