Thunder Bay - Your plan for your city

[Thunder Bay] will spend the next year conducting a comprehensive review of the [official] plan to make it consistent with provincial policy and reflect the community’s and council’s vision for the city’s future.

Among its broad intents, the review must ensure the official plan comes into line with Ontario’s new (2005) Provincial Policy Statement, last year’s Northern Growth Plan, changes to the Planning Act and acts as diverse as the Endangered Species Act, Environmental Protection Act, Green Energy Act and the Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

The plan must also mesh with Thunder Bay’s 2011-2014 Strategic Plan. “Active transportation, public engagement, housing, food security, revitalization, urban design, and proactive development are all elements that bind the Strategic Plan and Official Plan together.”
