Ontario Municipal Board Review


I would like to invite all residents to participate in a Public Town Hall Meeting to learn about the Ontario Municipal Board’s (OMB) current role in the land use planning process. The board hopes to hear a broad array of public perspectives and to review and comment on changes the government is considering. You are encouraged to RSVP online, by email to OMBReview@ontario.ca or call 416-585-6014 or 1-855-776-8011.

I would like to thank the Attorney General’s office, Yasir Naqvi, for helping in the process of initiating this review.

The meeting will be held November 9th at St Anthony’s Banquet Hall, 523 St. Anthony St. and RSVPs are encouraged before November 4th. Registration and an open house will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  The town halls will begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 9:30 p.m.

The date, time and venue location is subject to change and periodic updates may occur. Please visit the Town Hall Meetings website closer to the date to ensure you receive the most current information.

Residents are also invited to submit their written comments and feedback on OMB reform by December 19, 2016.

If you have any further questions about the Review or the upcoming regional town hall sessions, I encourage residents to email OMBReview@ontario.ca or call 1-855-776-8011.
