Hey #Guelph! We’re Looking for Help to Design Townhouses & More!

Help develop design standards for townhouses and midrise buildings

Join us for a public workshop!

Guelph, Ont., March 16, 2017 – The City is developing new standards for townhouses and midrise buildings that will include building design, building height, landscaping, public and open spaces, parking and property access. Attend a public workshop to help us establish these draft design directions.

Workshop participants will have an opportunity to work in smaller groups to discuss and provide input on key design elements for townhouses and midrise buildings. Join for one of two sessions:

Wednesday, March 22

3:30-5:30 p.m. or 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Guelph City Hall, Room 112

Please register your attendance by Tuesday, March 21. If you require assistance with registration, please call Planning Services at 519-837-5615 extension 2459.

The resulting built form standards will enable design excellence for townhouses and midrise buildings across our city. In keeping with the City’s Official Plan, establishing a standard for design excellence will improve Guelph’s livability, sustainability and attractiveness and shape its distinctive identity.
