Beamsville has been identified by the Province of Ontario as a future potential GO Station site.
Niagara Region has partnered with the Town of Lincoln to develop a Secondary Plan which provides a 20-year vision and planning framework to guide transit-supportive development around the future potential GO Station.
The Secondary Plan has been inserted into the Town's Official Plan and contains policies and guidelines for development or redevelopment which is complimentary to the existing community.
The Plan also identifies capital infrastructure improvements necessary to provide residents and commuters with safe and efficient access to Lincoln's future potential GO Station site.
The Secondary Plan identifies and recommends phasing for capital improvements necessary to enable safe and efficient access to the future potential GO Station.
Studies will be undertaken to assist with determining design details and elements included as part of each improvement.
