1. The City of Owen Sound is updating their Official Plan.

What is an Official Plan?

An Official Plan is a long range planning and policy document that directs growth and development within the City, and outlines the goals, objectives and policies to guide land use, development and growth in a municipality. The City's Official Plan is Council's contract with the community about how development will be considered and evaluated and provides a guide for physical growth within the context of social, economic and environmental matters.  

The Official Plan review process will address changes to Provincial and County policies, while also assessing challenges and opportunities associated with the following areas:
  • Housing Choice and Opportunity 
  • Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change 
  • Transportation
  • Land Use and Design 
Why do we need to update the Official Plan? 
  • To conform to Provincial and County Policies;
  • Direct growth and development over the long term (2041), while considering important social, economic and environmental priorities and objectives; and,
  • Implement the City's Master Plans and studies.
