Municipal Development Plan & Land Use Bylaw Review
- Community Engagement -

The County will be undergoing a very involving and detailed community engagement process in reviewing their MDP and LUB for updates in 2020. The process is planned over 3 rounds of public engagement starting this coming January.

Round one will see the County hosting four community sessions where all County land and business owners, and community leaders & groups will be invited to participate. This engagement session will be held as a working supper evening with facilitated table sessions where all participants will be asked to review and contribute to planning processes, documents, and land use considerations. Materials developed at these evenings will be compiled, organized, and prepared for presentation during round two.

Round one community sessions will be hosted regionally as below, and participants may attend the session for their area, as defined by the attached map. Invitations will be sent out in December with a required RSVP for caterer planning.

#1 Monday, January 13 Brownfield Community Hall 5:30 – 9:30 pm For residents north of 599 and east of RR120
#2  Tuesday, January 14 Coronation Community Center 5:30 – 9:30 pm For residents south of 599 and east of RR123
#3  Wednesday, January 15 Halkirk Community Hall  5:30 – 9:30 pm For residents in Ranges 15 and 16

Round two sessions are tentatively planned for late April 2020 and will feature the participants being able to electronically vote for options or directions presented, which will then be moved forward into the draft MDP and LUB updates. Shorter evening sessions are anticipated where refreshments will be available.

Round three will see the prepared drafts of the updated MDP and LUB hosted during open houses around the County, on a drop in basis. The current plan is to have these two documents ready for public review around late September or just prior to Thanksgiving.
