The Town of Innisfil invited citizens to volunteer for a Citizen Advisory Committee that will provide advice on the Secondary Plans for Alcona North and Alcona South. Two volunteers were being sought for each Committee. Applications closed on Friday, May 27.
As I understand it, a Secondary Plan addresses land uses for a particular neighbourhood in more detail, based on the general terms specified in an Official Plan. Innisfil’s Official Plan has not yet been approved by the Ontario government. It is currently under mediation and no settlement is expected until after the Ontario provincial election this fall. However, the Inspiring Innisfil 2020 report makes numerous recommendations concerning the way our neighbourhoods should be improved. This process, as it applies to Alcona, will be an interesting one to watch.
