In 2014, the Municipality started a process to update our planning documents. This plan review process - or as we like to call it, reVISION - will create new documents that guide how and where the municipality will grow and change. Those documents include:

  • Municipal Planning Strategy
  • Village Secondary Planning Strategy
  • Land Use By-Laws
  • Subdivision By-Laws.

Based on the community feedback we have received, we know that the current plans and by-laws are out of date. They do not reflect all of our community values. The reVISION process will help us build the community’s vision, goals and approaches for new growth and development. It will guide how the community develops over the long term.

Central to the reVISION process is to view the area through the eyes of the public. We want help from residents to decide where growth should happen and what growth should look like. Your ideas and values are needed to build this plan!

To stay up to date about the reVISION process, including upcoming events, please join our Plan Review email list. We have also created some quick-read documents to help introduce you to the Plan Review process:
