The City of Hamilton has initiated a study to review the Regional Official Plan Amendment 9 (ROPA9) Transportation Master Plan (TMP) completed in 2006 for the ROPA9 Planning and Trinity neighbourhood areas (see attached map). This Master Plan review will consider modifications to the TMP due to the changes in land use plans approved for the lands east of Eramosa Karst. The first Public Information Centre (PIC) was held on February 1, 2012. In Ward 11, the Ropa 9 lands take in the south side of Rymal Road, from just west of Trinity Church Road through to and including Elfrida.

The study team has reviewed the existing problems/opportunities, and identified alternative solutions based on the changed land use plans, existing traffic situations and future needs. The Master Plan review process is following the Municipal Engineer’s Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) (October 2000, as amended in 2007) and will fulfill the Class EA requirements for any Schedule B projects that are identified and the Phases 1 and 2 requirements for any identified Schedule C projects. At the conclusion of this study an addendum to the 2006 TMP study will be prepared.

The following Public Information Centre (PIC#2) will be held to present the study findings, alternatives and preferred solutions.

Date: Wednesday, November 7, 2012
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Open house
Location: Salvation Army Church, Gymnasium, 300 Winterberry Drive, Stoney Creek
Following PIC#2, the public and stakeholders will have two more weeks to review the recommended solutions and bring any comments to the attention of the Project Manager.
