More than two years after the new Council being sworn in and more than 9 years of “work” Jorden has produced a DRAFT Official Plan.
This is a draft only.
The legislated public meeting under the Planning Act hasn’t been held yet nor has the province provided comments.
The DRAFT plan starts on page 87 of this link: http://melancthontownship.ca/13council/agenda.jan10.pdf
I will go out on a limb here and say there will not be a new Official Plan in place by the 2014 election.
But yes, lets not change planners, Jorden is TOO integral to the operation. TOO difficult to replace him. FOR WHO?
For what we pay him in our tax dollars, we could have a FULL time planner in office FIVE days a week (that is called Service Delivery Improvement) and probably have had an Official Plan in place by now.
