TOWN OF PREECEVILLE PLANNING QUESTIONAIRE 2017
We Still Need Your Input
The Town is initiating a planning review project to adopt a New Official Community Plan and a New Zoning Bylaw to better guide development within our community. The Town’s Zoning Bylaw is outdated and does not reflect the changing needs of the Town and provides almost no direction on growth. In order to update the Zoning Bylaw, the Provincial Government requires the Town to adopt an Official Community Plan. The benefit of having an overall plan with “Action” items will assist Council in planning cost effective infrastructure and balancing residential, commercial, recreational and industrial development. Town Council has engaged Tim Cheesman, M.C.I.P. and his Planning Team to prepare the Plan and Bylaw. The Planning Team has been requesting public input on the project over the last few months. Surveys have been sent out, a public meeting was held and the planning team met with business and community organization representatives.
Results of the public consultation process will be made available to the public after the Planners and Town Council analyse the data gathered from the public engagement process. The draft Official Community Plan will be made available to the public, hopefully this spring.
