Township of Algonquin Highlands Official Plan Review

You are invited to attend a Public Open House regarding updating the current Official Plan for the Township of Algonquin Highlands:

DATE:  Saturday, May 29, 2010
TIME: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Dorset Recreation Centre, 1051 Main Street Dorset, Ontario

The Township of Algonquin Highlands recently initiated an Official Plan Review, which is intended to reflect changes in provincial and county policies and provide an opportunity for citizens to influence the future of planning and development in their community. This Public Open House is the first opportunity for the community to provide comment into the Official Plan Review Process.

The purpose of this initial Public Open House is to involve Algonquin Highlands’ residents in the Official Plan Review process by introducing the process to the community and obtain input from the public on issues and key topics to be addressed early in the process. Key issues identified by staff to date include:

  1. Shoreline and Waterfront Development
  2. Rural Development
  3. Commercial Land Development
  4. Settlement Areas
  5. Natural Heritage / Environmental Management
  6. Private Road Development
  7.  Lake Water Quality
  8. Administration Matters resulting from Bill 51

Other policy review matters may arise as a result of public input and further staff review. It should be noted that no specific policy revisions are being considered at the Open House but rather the goal is the identification of matters to be addressed in the process. The need for and exact nature of specific policy revisions will be determined as the review process proceeds. Additional opportunities for public input will be provided at future stages in the process.

 The township would welcome your input on this process either in writing or in person at the Public Open House. Any comments, information or questions should be directed to either of the Project Team members listed below:
