THE MAIN STREETS OF MARKHAM: MAKING ROADS INTO COMMUNITIES - INTERNATIONAL CHARRETTE

February 24-29, 2012
Institute Without Boundaries

Located on the northern border of the city of Toronto,  Markham is a thriving community of 310,000.  Growth in Markham is expected to continue with the city becoming denser as more new residents flock to this desirable community. At the same time, community members are committed to sustainability and keeping the unique character of their neighbourhoods. This charrette will tackle these seemingly contradictory desires with projects that tackle the different “main streets” in Markham, proposing design interventions to acheive this balance.

    Is there any work being done to strike down zoning regulations that prohibit the building of well designed very small homes? Minimum square footage rules hardly promote sustainability.
    Refusing to allow “alternative” waste management systems only ensures we will continue building inefficient structures which need a huge infrastructure…composting toilets comes to mind.
