Haliburton County is joining other municipalities in rural Ontario to give their feedback on Bill 73. It’s the Smart Growth for Our Communities Act that will impose changes to land use planning, which will mean more costs to municipalities and slower growth for our communities. Those are the sentiments local councilors are expressing about the proposed Bill.

They recently supported the County’s Director of Planning to submit a letter to the Ministry and the Premier on their behalf expressing their concerns.

The bill is set to go to a second reading in June.
