****************************
Tune into a live and virtual Special Council Meeting to reconnect on the Mulock property, all from the comfort of your home. This meeting will wrap up the first stage of public engagement and move the project into phase two (design), bringing us one step closer to enjoying what’s set to be a hub where culture, recreation and community collide.

Special Council Meeting Details
When: Monday, May 25 at 2 p.m.

Where: Streamed live online here. This meeting will also be recorded and archived online.

Agenda: Read the agenda and reports here.

Get Involved:

  • Tune in live
  • Make a live deputation: contact clerks@newmarket.ca by Sunday, May 24 to arrange
  • Submit written comments to be read aloud by the mayor during the meeting that will form the public record. Email comments to clerks@newmarket.ca by Monday at noon.

Thank you for your ideas!
During the meeting, the consulting team - PLANT Architects and Process (public engagement) will share the results of the robust, five-month community engagement process (October 2019-February 2020).

More than 3,000 residents shared their vision and ideas for the property during a Harvest Picnic, focus groups, high school and community workshops, an online survey and at HeyNewmarket. Thank you to everyone who participated and helped shape the future Mulock Property.

Moving into Phase Two
In addition to public engagement, the team did extensive research into the site’s ecology, archaeology, landscape condition and tree health, building assets, heritage, parking access and more. This shaped a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities, goals, objectives and high-level design principles for the park and house development.

The public engagement results and the technical report will be presented to council for discussion and feedback, which will lay the groundwork for the design of the park in Phase Two.

What’s next?
Pending council approval on May 25, the project will move to phase two, which will include the creation of three design concepts that will then be refined to one master plan.
