A local organization wants better provincial policies for rural development. The Land Between is working toward a Good Growth Portfolio, and is asking county council for financial support.

Founder Leora Berman says provincial policy statements are catered to southern Ontario, and don’t address the issues in our region. Their goal is to create a solution that works for our area.

Berman says they’re asking for support from all 9 municipalities in The Land Between. The area stretches from Frontenac to Georgian Bay.

The portfolio will include things like case studies, best practices guide and a media portfolio.

The investment would mean a total of 20 thousand dollars over two years from Haliburton County.
