About the Project

The Glendale Niagara District Plan is being prepared by Niagara Region in cooperation with the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and City of St. Catharines.

The purpose of the study for the Glendale Niagara District Plan is to develop an exciting urban vision for an area that has been identified to accommodate high density, mixed-use urban growth.

District Area

The study area includes:

  • Outlet Collection at Niagara
  • Niagara College Campus
  • Existing residential development south of Glendale Ave.
  • Hospitality uses on both sides of the QEW providing convenient access from the highway for visitors


Through consultation with stakeholders and the public, visioning and background work will be completed as part of the study starting in Spring 2018.

This information will inform the vision for growth, key strategies, appropriate land use designations, and associated policies to guide future development of the lands.

Project Update

On Oct. 4, 2018, Niagara Region Council endorsed the Vision and Conceptual Development Plan for Phase 1 of the Glendale Niagara District Plan. This sets the stage for the initiation of additional technical work under Phase 2, required to bring the District Plan vision closer to implementation.

District Plans

A District Plan is a pro-active development strategy that supports the Region's focus on growth and economic prosperity. It's the framework for the land-use planning, design and development of complete communities in areas that currently are, or have the potential to become, iconic in nature.

District Plans are endorsed by Regional Council and the affected local area municipal council(s) as strategic land-use documents.
