Provincial Legislation Being Reviewed By Ontario Government

PUBLIC INPUT SESSION: Tuesday April 14th Milton Sports Centre Room #3 at 7pm!

Recently the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing announced a province wide review of a number of pieces of legislation to be conducted over the next several months.

These are just some of the laws that govern municipalities and how fast we grow, where we grow and the limitations of that growth.

They include:

  • The Growth Plan for the GTHA
  • The Greenbelt Plan
  • The Oakridges Moraine Conservation Plan
  • The Niagara Escarpment Plan

The Ministry has announced a number of public open house sessions throughout the province including one here in Milton on April 22nd.

Given the impact that these pieces of legislation have on a municipalities ability to plan its growth, I felt that it was important that we try to gain a better Milton and Halton perspective on some of these items before we make our views known during the ministry’s provincial meetings.  I have scheduled a public input session for Tuesday April 14th at Milton Sports Centre Room #3 starting at 7pm and with the assistance of fellow Councillor Colin Best we can get important feedback from Milton and Halton residents on these potential changes.

All are welcome as we discuss ideas on the Greenbelt and your thoughts as to the future. Is the Greenbelt too big? Is it too small? What changes can be made to better plan for Milton/Halton’s growth over the next 20 years?

There are many questions to be asked and we would like to hear from you.

As always if you cant make it, please email me your thoughts or here in the comments.
