VMC Urban Design Guidelines

Project Overview


The Urban Design Guidelines are intended to facilitate the implementation of the VMC by setting a framework for built form excellence. The Guidelines serve as the ‘go-to manual’ for urban design issues used by applicants and their designers, as well as City staff responsible for review and approval. By clarifying expectations and setting clear design objectives, the Guidelines are intended to expedite the review process for development applications and facilitate implementation of the VMC vision as transit-oriented, walkable, accessible, diverse, vibrant, green and beautiful.
