So let's see...we've lived here for over 15 years now, and still no local grocery store, restaurants, cafes or other shops & services beyond the plethora of nail salons & physio places.  
Delayed indefinitely!
Methinks I'll be in a retirement home or pushing up daisies before these developers complete the live-play-work-shop-within-walking-distance of the Cornell vision.
Discouraging.

Seriously.. I've only moved in last September and I'm alrady getting discouraged. There isn't even a bus route that goes from my area (Cornell Center/Riverlands) to markham GO Station. I definitely see the lack of close-by amenities to the Cornell area. If I was one of the original Cornellers I would be furious.. The community centre is nice but... where's my coffee shop within walking distance? Would be nice to have a starbucks or second cup nearby. Grocery store should have been here years ago..  
 
Wondering what they're waiting for? If I don't see progress in 2-3 years I'm out Embarassed

If you and others would like services to the GO station, send an email to Rick.Leary@york.ca, TransitInfo@york.ca and the regional Councillors advising them of your issues and the YRT changes you would like to see.  
Last August YRT came out with a plan to cut some of the 201 Shuttle service this FY, however based on all the emails from the riders expressing their concerns the YRT GM directed staff to continue proving uninterrupted service and monitor further this year.
 
If there is enough people requesting for services to expand to Cornell Rouge or Grand Cornell, it will happen. However you all have to email them about it.

Cornell Gates Secondary plan amendment has been deferred again to 2014. This is the fifth deferral and at this point I would say means absolutely nothing. It will just keep getting deferred until they are ready to build. I have updated the project list to reflect this.

Almost 15 years ago, in Cornell's infancy, a few of us made depositions at a council meeting regarding plans to NOT have any busses run through Cornell Village as there was not enough density to warrant any busses.  
In my deposition I pointed out that there are busses along Church Street where there is 1 house every 200', in the same street frontage in Cornell Village there is 11 townhouses. Also reminded them of the idea of New Urbanism and its premise of less cars.  
That was pretty much the end of the argument from the Town Council and Markham Transit.  
From the citizens depositions buss routes were mapped through Cornell Village.  
 
The housing density in Cornell has been a very useful argument tool in other issues and committees I have been a part of.  
 
Remember when the laneways were tar and chipped? This was a cost cutting measure.  
It was suggested that I be a member of the residents committee who would speak to the town regarding the laneways: My argument to get the lanes repaved back to asphalt was that there is more voting power and more tax revenue in 200' in Cornell than in other areas.  
I suggested that if The Town wanted to save money to do it where tax revenues were less then they should tar and chip Church Street.  
Two weeks later our laneways were being re-surfaced to asphalt.  
 
Call or email Jack Heath, he answers his own phone when you call, and ask him about plans for busses in your areas. He can at least point you in the right direction, and if your argument is sound he has the ability to bring the issue up in a Council meeting.

Appreciate the update on these Steve.  
Maybe some of the projects that completed some time now can be removed from the list.

Great points. With Cornell density, all the development and tax revenue, i dont get it. Like you said we have more homes per km than other areas they weren't putting gravel. The community bus and a few others run empty all day and they aren't cutting those services.

With a date confirmed for the Hospital opening I have cleaned up the 1st post in this thread. As you can see only the Catholic elementary school project is planned for the next year with all other projects delayed. I don't expect any further updates on projects for a long time (likely many years).

Does anyone know what is planned for the open field across from the Yee Hong Centre - south side of White's Hill in between Bur Oak and Walkerville.
