Lily Lake Functional Planning Study

In 2009 the City hired Bousfields Inc. to undertake a functional planning study for the Lily Lake Planning Area. Located at the northwestern limit of the City, the Lily Lake Planning Area is approximately 198 hectares (489 acres) in size and is bound by the City limit to the west, Jackson Creek to the south, Lily Lake Road to the north, and Fairbairn Street to the east.

The purpose of a functional planning study is to comprehensively review the major planning issues affecting an area before it is developed in order to allow for the creation of land use designations and policies to guide its future development.

As the project manager, Bousfields Inc. lead a multi-disciplinary team of sub-consultants to investigate issues related to:

  • natural environment features;
  • groundwater and soil conditions;
  • archaeology;
  • stormwater management;
  • transportation planning;
  • municipal servicing; and,
  • land use planning.

The Lily Lake Functional Planning Study was received by Council sitting as Planning Committee on November 19, 2012. The study documents opportunities and opportunities affecting the future land use potential for the Lily Lake area and makes recommendations with respect to future land use planning in the area. Information contained in the study will be used as the basis for a City-initiated Secondary Plan for the Planning Area.
