The Official Plan is the planning document that helps guide development in the Municipality over the next 20 years, and provides tools to the Municipality to initiate economic development, sustainability, urban design, and more.
The first draft of the Municipality’s new Official Plan, for the purpose of public consultation, has been approved by Council on August 16 2022, under Resolution No. 2022/08/262. This draft has been forwarded to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for their preliminary review. The Municipality is requesting feedback from the public on this draft of the Official Plan and will continue to seek public input until finally adopted, hopefully by summer 2023. Any comments can be sent to our Planning Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 705-752-1410 x 306 by January 31st 2023.
It is important to note that staff have also provided comments on the Official Plan, which will be presented to Council at an upcoming Council meeting. These changes will be posted once made public at the meeting.
For more information and to view the Draft Official Plan, please see Plans and Strategies.
Please stay tuned for more opportunities to comment on the Official Plan in early Spring.
