Background Report, December 2018

More information on the Official Plan review process.

The Official Plan for the Municipality of Kincardine establishes a guideline for future development in the Municipality.  Using both text and maps, the Official Plan identifies areas for future growth, areas to be protected from development and the location and classification of current and future roads.  The Official Plan also describes the policies and procedures to be followed when planning the development of land and provision of municipal services.

 The existing Kincardine Official Plan was adopted by the Municipality in 2006, approved by Bruce County in 2007, and approved by the Ontario Municipal Board in 2009.Given the time since adoption and approval, the Municipality has initiated the current update process.

 A public Open House is planned in order to provide members of the public with an opportunity to review work conducted to date on the project, specifically the recently-released draft Background Report.  Display boards will be available for review, and members of the project team and Municipal staff will be on-hand to discuss the work and answer questions.  Community members are invited to attend the open house to review materials and speak to the project team. 

 The Background Report represents the first phase of the project, and will be finalized following the Open House.  Following completion of this phase, work will commence on drafting revised Official Plan policies and mapping.  It is anticipated that the Official Plan update will take about one year to complete.  There will be a number of opportunities for public participation throughout the process of updating the Plan.
