The first phase of the Malton Area Policies Review involves getting to know the community and engaging the residents and businesses in the neighbourhood. The goal of Phase One is to create a vision and guiding principles which will direct future growth and revitalization of the community.
The first community conversation took place on May 7th, 2015 where over 80 community members came out to the Visioning Sessions and discussed what the community liked about Malton, challenges and great ideas for improvement.
The second conversation took place on June 17th, 2015. Over 90 people attended the Community Workshop to listen to a summary of fundamental themes generated from the May 7th event. Twenty potential actions based on the fundamental themes were presented, discussed and tested with the community.
The last community visioning session took place on October 14th, 2015 with over 130 members of the Malton neighbourhood in attendance at the Community Meeting. Guest speakers included Mayor Crombie, Councillor Parrish and a special live performance by Junia - T, a local artist who sang about Malton. A draft vision, guiding principles and key actions which will direct future growth and revitalization of the community, were presented.
The final MyMalton Community Vision was presented to the Planning and Development Committee on Monday, April 11th, 2016. The vision was received and staff were directed to prepare an Action Plan and revised Official Plan Policies for the Malton area.
