St. Thomas Position For Growth
Purpose
of the Project

St. Thomas is growing! How & where should we grow?

The City of St. Thomas has a projected 20-year residential forecast of 50,600 people by 2041, and as a result needs to adjust its Urban Area boundary to accommodate this potential growth as part of an Official Plan review.

In June 2018, the City completed a population and housing study that identified the need for an additional 76 gross hectares of residential land to accommodate the projected population growth.

This project builds on a study from 2010 where lands within the north-west quadrant of the City along with other land blocks on the west and south-east sides of St. Thomas were strategically assessed for residential designation. Remaining expansion lands from that study are being reassessed as part of this project.

The purpose of this study is to undertake the necessary planning and engineering studies to support the preferred expansion lands, bring those lands into the Urban Area boundary, and designate them for development; and identify citywide recreational and cultural infrastructure, and fire protection services needed to support that growth.
