HISTORY OF MEADOWVALE

 

Meadowvale was one of the first and most successful planned communites in North America. It was developed in 1970 by Markborough Properties who had assembled over 2400 aces of former farmland to build their community. Meadowvale’s master plan community involved mixing residential pockets and business pockets within the same community. Public housing was another important component of the community. The idea was to have a self-sustained community and to that end Meadowvale also included a shopping centre, schools, parks, recreation centre and most notably two man made lakes situated within a protected conservation area where residents could enjoy hikes and picnics. Meadowvale houses were built in the 1970s and 80s and soon homeowners would be followed by businesses and a community was born.
