At the Committee of the Whole Meeting on July 4th, 2022, drafts of the Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law were presented to Council and given First Reading or approval to proceed to the Public Hearing where residents could provide feedback or consideration for changes to Council. The public hearing was held on July 20th at 6pm and submissions from the hearing were considered by Council at the Special Council Meeting on July 20th at 7pm.

After considering the submissions from the Public Hearing in depth, Council decided to implement substantive revisions to the drafts before approving. Revisions will be made, and new drafts will be presented again in the fall for consideration of a First Reading and eventually another Public Hearing.
