On March 22, 2022 at 9 am, Planning Staff and consultants will provide an overview of public feedback received last fall (emails, letters, Open House, Survey) and their suggested revisions to the draft Official Plan. As a reminder, this Official Plan will shape development and land use in the Township for the next 10-15 years.
Planning Committee will deliberate and provide direction to planners, and a further draft Official Plan will be prepared and presented to Planning Committee this spring, followed by another Open House and Public Meeting during the summer. It does not look like this Plan will be passed until sometime in 2023.
Friends of Muskoka and the MLA provided detailed comments and recommendations on the draft Official Plan, which you can find here.
Please note that Special Planning Committee meetings are also tentatively scheduled for March 23 and 24, 2022 at 9 am should additional time be needed to review the forthcoming report. The report and recommendations will be posted on the Township website the week prior to the meetings. We will keep you informed.
To delegate at the March 22nd meeting, please send your request no later than Monday March 14th at 12 noon.
