Our current schedule for the Official Plan and Zoning and Subdivision Bylaw Review calls for us to complete work before the end of 2019. Dates for the first three steps outlined in the table below are established. Stantec met with Town official to start the project on April 25. We have been engaged in research since with the objective of preparing ourselves for the third project step, our Consultation Week scheduled for June 10 through 13.
Consultation Week will involve two meetings with Cornwall Town Council and two open public meetings. We will provide a day-by-day schedule shortly. The first public meeting will allow us to hear the concerns and ideas of town residents. At the second meeting, we will summarize that input and provide our preliminary thoughts on our response. Through discussions with the public and Council we will determine the scope of amendments needed to the Official Plan and Zoning and Subdivision Bylaw.
The balance of the project is tentatively scheduled and will depend on the scope of community issues and public response to the draft documents when they are prepared. During the summer months of July and August, Stantec will prepare amendments to the Plan and Bylaw to address the issues we will have heard. We will bring the draft documents back to Town Council and the public for a second round of review in September, after which we will finalize them based on the comments received.
