WHAT HAPPENS AT THE OPEN HOUSE?

There will be no formal presentations so you can drop-in at any time to speak to staff and consultants and ask questions. No decisions will be made at the Open House.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE PUBLIC MEETING?
There will be a formal presentation from consultants regarding the Town’s new “Our Place” Official Plan as well as outcomes from the “Our Jobs” process focused on the Innisfil Heights Employment Area. The public then be able to ask questions and make comments. No decisions will be made at the Public Meeting.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE PUBLIC MEETING? 
Staff will consider all comments from the Open House and Public Meeting, along with any written submissions, before making any further changes to the documents before they are presented to Council at a future Council Meeting (tentatively targeted for December 2017).
