The city of Hamilton's Official Plan identifies specific communities that are areas with an important concentration of services, shops, residential uses and other facilities which serve as a focal point for the surrounding community.
They are intended to have a mix of uses that allow for access to housing, employment, services and recreation in close proximity to each other and transit.
The Node study is being conducted in parallel with the 'Waterdown Built Heritage Inventory' study and will help inform the Plan policies and the development of urban design guidelines that will guide future change and development in the village of Waterdown.
