Analysis & Discussion Papers Released
Before developing new planning documents it is important to understand the current conditions in Queens, and the trends that could shape our communities in the future. The project team has developed a series of six “Analysis & Discussion” papers that provide this needed context. The papers cover topics such as the environment, demographics, and economy. They look at where we are today and where we might be going in the future, and discuss some broad policy directions for shaping that future. These reports lay the foundation for planning for the future of Queens.
To read the Analysis & Discussion Papers, please check out the Document Library.
These reports are map heavy, so each file is approximately 2 MB in size. If you have a poor internet connection and have trouble downloading the files, please contact us with your mailing address and a request for the files, and we will mail you a USB drive containing all six reports.
The Policy Direction report was created to propose possible directions for the new Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use Bylaw. The recommendations made in the report are intended as discussion points for the Planning and Advisory Committee and the public to provide feedback before drafts of the Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use Bylaw are developed.
The report is complemented by six Analysis & Discussion Papers that provide understanding of the current conditions in Queens, and some of the key trends that will likely shape the Region’s future.
To review the Policy Direction report and offer feedback, please check out the Policy Direction page.
