Phase 1 Creating a Vision: Completed

Phase 1 of the Official Plan Review kicked off with a visioning questionnaire and workshops where the public was invited to attend and provide input on how they envision the future of Huntsville. The vision and guiding principles for the existing Town of Huntsville Official Plan can be found under Section 2. Given the importance that community Vision plays in land use policy, the first step of the Official Plan project is to determine whether the existing Vision still reflects the direction that residents, stakeholders and Council want for Huntsville in the next 20 years. These sessions represented the beginning of the process as the Vision provides a basis for developing goals, objectives and policies for the Official Plan.
