Improving Planning Notices

You’ve no doubt come across a sign from City Planning with information about a new development proposal.

The signs are confusing and difficult to read – you certainly don’t walk away with a clear sense of the proposal or how to get involved.

That’s why I supported a proposal at July’s City Council meeting to redesign City Planning’s public notices!

City Council directed the Chief Planner to review its public notices and look at making them more accessible by using straightforward language and informative illustrations.

Consultation will be part and parcel of the review and a report is expected in early 2015.
