Public Meetings

Two meetings took place in November of 2019. One introduced the proposed Community Improvement Plan and the other provided a follow-up to questions brought up by members of the public and members of Council during the original meeting.

Council Adopted Growth CIP

Growth CIP was adopted on December 10 2019.

Growth CIP Amendment

The Landfill Tipping Fee Rebate was added to the Growth CIP on December 8th 2020. This financial incentive provides a rebate for the required fees associated with the demolition of primary buildings within the Housing Target Area.
