Planning For Tomorrow Phase 3 public consultation
Public meetings enable residents to learn more and have a say

NEWMARKET – York Region residents are invited to participate in public consultations as part of The Regional Municipality of York’s three-year growth management review.  The Planning for Tomorrow events feature an open house followed by a town hall meeting and public discussion.
The purpose of the events is to review a preferred growth scenario of 40 per cent intensification that was endorsed by York Regional Council in May as the basis for the Region’s growth management plan to 2031.  The meetings will also discuss the findings from the first two phases of public consultations for York Region’s growth management review.
The consultations will encourage public discussion on the issues and choices facing York Region, identify solutions and seek broad public consensus on public policy decisions that need to be made about how to manage future growth.
