The Region of Waterloo has announced that they have reached an agreement with the developers who appealed the Official Plan. The agreement must still be approved by the Ontario Municipal Board, and we await that final decision, but it is an exciting achievement that will go a long way toward protecting our farmland and environmentally sensitive areas, as well as supporting more dense and liveable urban areas.
While we await that final decision, there are still ways to get involved:
- See where the provincial candidates stood on smart growth and the Region’s Official Plan with our 2014 Ontario Election Questionnaire.
- Sign up for our email list. We won’t email often, but we will keep you up to date on developments in the court case and the Region’s Official Plan.
- Follow along with Smart Growth Waterloo Region on Facebook or Twitter. We’ll be looking to engage with you in the coming months over the final stages of the appeal and what’s next for Smart Growth Waterloo Region.
