Kawartha Lakes open for business with Secondary Plan approvals
“Council’s endorsement and passage of the Secondary Plans is critical to moving our community forward,” said Mayor Andy Letham. “I have said it before and I am saying it again, Kawartha Lakes is open for business.”
The approved Secondary Plans identify additional general urban settlement and updated land use policies for the City’s five settlement areas consisting of Lindsay, Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Omemee and Woodville.
“These policies will assist in guiding the growth and development of the five settlement areas to the year 2031,” said CAO Ron Taylor.
Mr. Taylor noted the timing could not have been better for Council’s endorsement of the Secondary Plans.
“Over the past number of months the City’s focus has been on development readiness,” said Mr. Taylor. “The Secondary Plans is one of the final pieces along with foundational policies and infrastructure improvements to position our municipality for growth and development.”
Mayor Letham said the approval of the Secondary Plans in conjunction with forward-thinking policies, infrastructure investment and the new Planning Process Task Force will position the municipality well to retain and attract new residents and businesses.
“Our staff and Council have been working proactively to address a number of challenges and concerns brought forward by our residents and our development community,” said Mayor Letham. “With our Secondary Plans in place and our future growth areas established, we have never been more open for business than we are right now. We are on the verge of a lot of great things for our municipality.”
