Planning and Development Council Meeting - September 26th
Update courtesy of Allan Elgar, Ward 4 Regional and Town Councillor
On September 26th Council will be considering three significant reports that will define the future growth of our community. Reports on Urban Structure and Cultural Heritage are town-wide and set the context that will guide Council decision-making on all growth matters. The Urban Structure report sets the vision on how the town will look in 100 years by defining what we protect, and where and how we grow. The Cultural Heritage report enhances the level of protection for cultural heritage in our Livable Oakville Official Plan.
