Second round of public consultations: Through the fall, the Municipality will host a round of public meetings. The meetings are part of the Plan Review. Topics will include land use, development, zoning, environment and rural communities. The first meeting was held in Chester Village on August 19th. At meetings held this winter, residents talked about what was important in their communities. Residents discussed what they valued: character; economic development; housing; natural environment and strong communities. Since then, staff and the Advisory Committee have worked on goals for the Plan Review. They have also suggested planning areas for each community. Residents now have a chance to view this draft work and give feedback. There will be open-houses in each community. Residents are invited to drop in any time during the open-houses from 10:00am to 12:00pm and 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Public meetings/ workshops will be held in the evening, 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
