Burlington's Official Plan Review: Staff report on the revised Comprehensive Work Plan, Schedule and Budget, and notice of Community Energy Plan Youth Video Contest!

November 26, 2013

________________________

Report Available - Official Plan Review:  Revised Comprehensive Work Plan, Schedule and Budget Allocation.

On Sept. 4, 2012, City Council endorsed the work plan for the 2012 Official Plan Review.  That approval brought the Official Plan Review into the "Conversations and Analysis" phase.  Since then the Official Plan Review team has moved the various work plans steadily forward by consulting with the public, stakeholders and agencies and by researching issues.  Over this time staff has provided regular updates to council and the community on the progress of the review.  A number of factors have made it neccessary to revise the scope, timing and budget of the Official Plan Review project.

Planning staff have prepared a report, PB-89-13 Official Plan Review:  Revised Comprehensive Work Plan, Schedule, and Budget Allocation that outlines these changes.  The report is now available and will be considered by the Development and Infrastructure Committee (click here and scroll to pg. 69 of the agenda package) on Monday Dec. 2, 2013 at 1 p.m., Council Chambers, second level Burlington City Hall.   

Next Steps

Council will consider the report and discussion at the Development and Infrastructure Committee meeting and will provide direction on the three recommendations included in the staff report at the next City Council meeting (Dec. 9). 

Please stay tuned for announcements regarding fall and winter Official Plan Review events and meetings. For more information, please contact:
