Regional Official Plan: Have your say!

Niagara Region is developing a new Official Plan and is looking for some input from the public. The process, known as a municipal comprehensive review, will produce a plan that will shape Niagara's physical, economic, and social development. The plan will include objectives, policies, and mapping that form Niagara's approach to managing population and employment growth; protecting the natural environment, resources, and farmland; and providing sufficient infrastructure. See when the open houses are and have your say here.
