Public Invited to Comment on the City’s Official Plan

January 12, 2012 – The City of Thunder Bay will be looking for citizens’ views, comments and suggestions on updating its Official Plan.

An Official Plan is an important document because it outlines policies on how land in Thunder Bay should be used and guides development in a way that builds a healthy, safe and sustainable community. The Plan contains policies and a map of land-use designations for the entire City, showing the future intended use of land.

"We want to hear from the public as we begin to identify and outline the issues that should be considered as part of this Official Plan review," said Leslie McEachern, Planning Division Manager. "We invite everyone to be part of this important land use planning project.”

Interested members of the public are encouraged to attend:
