About the Official Plan

The Town's Official Plan was first adopted in 1985 and has been amended and updated many times since. The Official Plan describes how land should be used in the community and addresses issues such as:

  • where new housing, industry and employment areas, shopping areas, parks, schools, conservation, and other land uses are to be located
  • what services will be needed, such as water supply, sanitary sewers, stormwater management, roadways and transit
  • where and how parts of the community are to grow
