Grimsby GO Transit Station Secondary Plan adopted in Grimsby

Our move towards daily GO Train service in Niagara marked another significant milestone with the adoption of the Grimsby GO Transit Station Secondary Plan at Grimsby Town Council on Feb. 20, 2018.

The Grimsby GO Transit Station Secondary Plan has been prepared to provide a vision and planning framework that will guide future transit oriented development and redevelopment around the new Grimsby GO Transit Station. Grimsby is the gateway to Niagara from the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) and will be the focus of significant long term intensification, redevelopment and public realm improvement.

Investment in high order transit like GO Transit, along with this area’s proximity to the waterfront, provides the Grimsby GO Transit Station area with a unique opportunity to emerge as a complete community node. This node will primarily focus on providing a full range of uses needed to support those living and working in the area, while continuing to serve the needs of the travelling public.

The plan has been developed with input from residents, stakeholders and has been carried out as a partnership between Niagara Region and the Town of Grimsby.

Now that the study has been adopted by the Town it will be presented to Niagara Regional Council for their approval as well in April 2018.

The Grimsby GO Station is one of three transit stations where Niagara is actively working on future development and capital improvements - the other stations being located in St. Catharines and Niagara Falls. These stations are part of Niagara’s larger efforts to improve transit in the Region and ensure that we are ready for daily GO Train service when it arrives with stops in Grimsby by 2021, and St. Catharines and Niagara Falls by 2023.
