Residents will have a chance to give their input regarding the Oakville's official draft of the Livable Oakville Plan, which outlines accommodating growth and protecting green spaces, during upcoming public information meetings.
Community members will have the opportunity to learn about and give feedback on the newly revised urban structure section of the town's growth plan on May 30 during two public forums at Town Hall. The town is strongly encouraging residents to give their recommendations on the amendments during the public sessions, which will be held from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
“It’s vital the town has a comprehensive urban structure in its official plan because it gives us a high-level look at where new growth will be focused,” Oakville Mayor Rob Burton said in a press release. “It sets out the basis for making planning decisions about where we live, work and play.”
Burton encouraged residents to give their feedback.
“Feedback from our community has helped staff prepare the draft amendments in front of us. Before they go to Council for final approval, I encourage you to review them and share your comments,” said Burton.
A statutory public meeting will be held on June 12 regarding the amendments to the official plan draft, which will also be held at Town Hall.
