 Official Plan Amendment No.11

The purpose of Official Plan Amendment No. 11 is to remove Schedule ‘D’ Community Improvement Areas to the Official Plan (2008) (OP) and to consider revisions to Section 6 Community Improvement Policies which have been prepared as part of the Official Plan update. The proposed revisions to Section 6 are being brought forward at this time to assist Council to effectively address many of the challenges faced by businesses and property owners during this time of restricted operations. The revisions create general goals and eligibility criteria for any area of the Municipality. The revisions to Section 6 add eligible costs for Community Improvement Plans, which conform to The Planning Act, and reflect key aspects of Council’s Strategic Plan including the availability of effective and efficient infrastructure, the provision of public and private amenities which improve quality of life and sense of place and opportunities for sustainable economic development.
