Oakville’s Town Hall will host a two public meetings in the upcoming weeks which will provide information to residents regarding the proposed official plan amendment for Glen Abbey.
The first meeting is this coming Wednesday, January 10. The first session begins at 2pm and runs until 4pm. Another session will run from 6:30pm until 8:30pm. Both sessions take place in the Trafalgar room at Oakville’s Town Hall.
Then on January 30th, a statutory public meeting will take place where residents can provide oral submissions to the planning and development council regarding the official plan amendment.
So what exactly is the purpose of amending Oakville’s official plan? The amendment will:
- provide the framework to recognize special policy areas for heritage conservation districts and cultural heritage landscapes protected under the Ontario Heritage Act
- look at land use designations and policies to support the protection, management and use of the Glen Abbey Golf Course cultural heritage landscape in a manner that ensures its cultural heritage value or interest is retained.
Attending public meetings can be a great way to engage in the democratic process that makes Oakville a great place to live. These public meetings will be a great opportunity for Oakville residents to have a say in how the town and Glen Abbey develops into the future.
