Public invited to two more Planning Approvals Task Force Open Houses

July 4, 2016 - The City of Kawartha Lakes Planning Approvals Task Force is a volunteer task force appointed by City Council. On June 20, the Task Force held a successful and well attended Open House in Fenelon Falls. In order to solicit additional public comment and suggestions on the planning approval processes, there will be two more Open Houses held on the following dates:

Wednesday July 13, 7 pm – 9 pm in the Victoria Room at City Hall, Lindsay

Thursday July 14, 7 pm – 9 pm at Coronation Hall, 1 King Street West, Omemee

The Open Houses are an opportunity for residents to discuss in small groups the current planning process and make suggestions on enhancements for the future.

Following the Open Houses, the Planning Approvals Task Force will provide advice and recommendations to Staff to inform the City’s Core Service Review of planning and building approvals, with the objective of recommending approval process improvements to accommodate and facilitate targeted development within the City.

The Task Force has circulated a Satisfaction Survey on the City’s Website or at this link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QBJGJ35), to Council, Planning Consultants and the development community. The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2016.
