This report summarizes the Recommended Plan for North Pickering, a new community project initated by the Province of Ontario on a 10,000 hectare (25,200 acre) site north-east of Metropolitan Toronto. It reflects studies by the North Pickering Project, Plantown Consultants Limited, and others into the physical, environmental, economic and social needs of a new community, and attempts to capture the aspirations of people who are likely to live there. The plan outlines the general principles for development and the broad pattern under which it will take place during the next 15 to 20 years. It provides a guide for planners to begin detailed design of an urban community for 75,000 persons and to determine the most effective way to utilize the agriculture resources. /RTAC/
