Notice of Public Open House: Proposed Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2016

Event date: Thursday, October 27, 2016, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Location: Doris Room, City Hall

The Province of Ontario, through the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, has released the Proposed Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2016, for public review and comment.  If approved, the Proposed Growth Plan would replace the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006.  The Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006 provides land use and infrastructure planning policies that are intended to manage growth in the Greater Golden Horseshoe.  Municipalities in the Greater Golden Horseshoe, including the City of Peterborough, are required to conduct land use planning in conformity with these policies.

The Proposed Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2016, is intended to build upon the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006, by proposing stronger policy direction to respond to key challenges that the region will face over the next 25 years.  

On September 12, 2016, the Council of the City of Peterborough received Report PLPD16-060 which outlines City Staff’s comments regarding the proposed Growth Plan and authorized City Staff to forward a letter to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing that summarizes these comments by October 31, 2016.

The City of Peterborough is hosting a Public Open House to present the City of Peterborough’s response to the Proposed Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2016, as follows:

Thursday, October 27, 2016
Doris Room, Second Floor, City Hall
500 George Street North
5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

At the Public Open House you will be able to review a series of displays and speak with representatives from the City. Copies of Report PLPD16-060 will also be available for review.

The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing is seeking public comments on the Proposed Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe until October 31, 2016.  Copies of the current and proposed Growth Plan and instructions for providing comments to the Province are available online at www.placestogrow.ca.
