January 2022 Update

Work on the Waterfront Hotel Planning Study is Resuming

On Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022, City staff presented Council with a study update through staff report PL-15-22.

With the re-examination of the New Official Plan (Taking a Closer Look at the Downtown) Project completed, approval of the new Official Plan (under appeal), as well as the Minster of Municipal Affairs and Housing’s approval, with modifications, of the Regional Official Plan Amendment 48, the City is able to resume the Waterfront Hotel Planning Study.

City staff, with support from the project consultant, The Planning Partnership, will pick up our work where it left off in 2018 and complete the study. The work is estimated to take four months and will use community input to-date to help develop a final preferred concept.
