The City of Cambridge is re-initiating the East Side Lands - Stage 2 Master Environmental Servicing Plan (MESP) Secondary Plan in north Cambridge.  The Secondary Plan is being completed as part of a larger MESP process being undertaken with the Region of Waterloo.  The purpose of the East Side Lands – Stage 2 MESP is to assist in identifying which lands should be added to the Urban Area boundary and how the lands will be planned and serviced in a fiscally and environmentally responsible manner.  The process involves an integrated approach to land use planning, water/wastewater servicing, utilities, transportation, and environmental planning.  For more information on the The East Side Lands – Stage 2 MESP see the Region of Waterloo's Growth Management - East Side Lands website.

The study area for the Secondary Plan includes lands north of Middle Block Road, east and south of Riverbank Drive, south of Fairway Road and east and west of Fountain Street North.  The Secondary Plan will be prepared as an amendment to the City of Cambridge Official Plan.
