Public Information Sessions
The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to advise residents of Public Information Sessions for Phase 1 of the Official Plan Review. The Public Information Sessions will be offered through two in-person events.
The Public Information Sessions will be held at Town Hall and the Craigleith Community Centre during the first week of June, and the Town welcomes all members of the public to attend and learn about Phase 1 of the Official Plan Review. Pre-registration for the meeting is available online.
The Town of The Blue Mountains is updating its Official Plan. When completed, the Official Plan will guide all future land-use decisions in the Town, including residential and commercial development, the type of permitted housing, density and intensification standards, and how agricultural and natural features will be protected. Residents and stakeholders will have the opportunity to share their feedback and vision for the Town's future by participating in the Official Plan Review.
The Official Plan Review process was endorsed by Council on Monday, December 13, 2021. The process is seeking an aggressive adoption schedule where Phase 1 is adopted with the current Council (July 2022) and Phase 2 with the future Council (December 2023).
The main goals of Phase 1 of the Official Plan Review are:
- Conformity with Upper Tier Planning Documents
- Review of the Official Plan Vision, Guiding Principles and Goals and Objectives
- Growth Management, Housing, Density Height and Character
- General Housekeeping Updates
The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to thank all who responded to the Official Plan Review Phase 1 Survey in April, 2022. 595 responses were received and the data gathered will be used to further refine the key goals and objectives of the Official Plan and its updated vision statement.
The survey was available both online and through paper copies from April 4 to April 29 and asked questions about the Town's current vision statement, resident's vision for the Town's future, key themes, goals and objectives, opportunities and concerns, neighbourhood design, growth, the environment, transportation and agriculture.
A summary of the survey results is now available.
