City Encourages Residents’ Input on Municipal Comprehensive Review


The City of Belleville is currently undertaking an Official Plan Update as required by the Planning Act. This is a four phase process: review and analysis of land requirements, policy recommendations, policy development, and implementation through an Official Plan Amendment.

As part of this process the City requested a Municipal Comprehensive Review from Watson & Associates Economists Limited in association with Dillon Consulting. This review establishes a long-term vision and planning framework for a municipality that fosters a sustainable approach to future residential growth and economic development. Typically, an M.C.R. examines future population and employment growth potential and corresponding urban land needs over a long-term planning horizon (up to 20 years).

The City has received the final draft of the Municipal Comprehensive Review Report  which addresses the first two phases of the Official Plan Review and would like to share this information with Belleville residents. A Public Information Centre will be held on June 3, 2019. The Centre will provide information regarding the Municipal Comprehensive Review Report and the City’s consultant will be available to discuss their findings and recommendations. This will be an informal setting providing the public with the opportunity to ask questions.

Date: Monday, June 3, 2019
Time: 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Location: SIR MACKENZIE BOWELL ROOM, 3rd Floor, Belleville City Hall, 169 Front Street

The Public Information Centre will be followed by a Public Meeting - a presentation by the City’s Consultant to Council along with the opportunity for the public to ask formal questions.

Date: Monday, June 3, 2019
Time: 5:30 p.m.
Location: COUNCIL CHAMBERS, 4th Floor, Belleville City Hall, 169 Front Street

Those wishing to provide comments on the Municipal Comprehensive Review Report, are asked to provide them in writing to mmtmacdonald@city.belleville.on.ca and indicate the subject.
