Get involved and have your say on what your community should look like when your grandchildren are adults

The look and feel of the Burlington we live in today is the result of decisions made decades ago.

The Regional government is running a series of public meetings to give the public an opportunity to have their say.

Regional boundaries

What do the four municipalities in the Region want their communities to look like ?

The Provincial Growth Plan mandates that Halton plan for 1.1 million residents and 500,000 jobs by 2051. Halton is reviewing the Regional Official Plan to meet this direction and remain responsive to our community’s needs.

As part of this review, the Region has developed different Growth Concepts outlining how and where Halton could grow by the year 2051. They have also prepared Regional Official Plan Amendment (ROPA) 48, which is being considered by Regional Council. ROPA 48 provides direction on how to accommodate future growth in existing urban areas.

Conserving the environment and making room for foreigners with environmental training is part of a new Conservation Halton initiative funded by a Trillium Grant
