OCP back to council — Tuesday, February 25, 2014, 7:00 pm (city hall)
The OCP will be on the agenda at the regular council meeting of February 25, 2014.  Public input is allowed.  Council will review the updates from its meeting of January 7, 2014 (see meeting summary at OCP-Still a Pandoras Box of unknown outcomes).   See also, “Port Moodytown” — towers and numbers.

The cover memo to council recommends that an OCP bylaw be drafted, and that the draft bylaw with the OCP be forwarded to the April 1, 2014 Land Use Committee meeting for review.
