For Immediate Release
Open Houses Scheduled to Discuss Draft County Official Plan Thursday, February 4, 2016
Wyoming, ON – Four Open Houses have been scheduled for next month to allow the public an opportunity to review and discuss the County of Lambton’s draft Official Plan.
The Official Plan is a key planning document that outlines County policy for land use as well as environmental, social and economic matters. The document provides a long-term strategy/outlook that is used by municipalities in the County federation to guide their own Official Plans. Public input, received last year on a number of background reports including the topics of agriculture, economic development, natural heritage, and affordable housing, has helped to shape the draft document.
Open Houses will operate as informal, drop-in sessions and will be held:
- 5 – 7 p.m., Monday, March 7 at the Dawn-Euphemia Community Centre (6213 Mill Street, Florence)
- 5 – 7 p.m., Thursday, March 10 at the Victoria Playhouse Petrolia lobby (411 Greenfield Street, Petrolia)
- 5 – 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 22 at the Shores Recreation Centre – lower meeting room (7883 Amtelecom Parkway, Forest)
- 5 – 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 23 at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 447(350 Albert Street, Corunna)
A Public Meeting to discuss the draft Official Plan has been tentatively scheduled for June.

The current version of the County’s Official Plan came into effect January 3, 1998.
