Bramalea Master Plan 1969

Things sure have changed in the many years since the 1969 Master Plan for Bramalea was created. Produced a decade in to the development of Bramalea, it would have been the basis for how much of Bramalea was built in the 1970s. It is more detailed and quite different from the 1958 Master Plan for Bramalea.

The master plan is reproduced below, with some commentary under a few of the pages. 001 002 003 004

In 1969 it was inconceivable that Bramalea and Brampton would become one city…but that changed by the mid 1970s. Also of note is the proposed “Bramalea Expressway”, which was built as the 410.005 006

How many of these are still true today?

Bramalea was planned to have a balance of housing types, which could suit a variety of family units. I feel that this is one of the reasons that Bramalea is such an interesting and sucessful community!009 010 011 012 013 014 015 016 017 018 019 020 021 022 023 024 025 026 027
