Ontario is undertaking a comprehensive review of how the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) operates and its role in the province’s land-use planning system to help increase its efficiency and make it more accessible to all Ontarians.
The OMB plays a central role in Ontario’s land-use planning process as an independent, public body through which people can appeal or defend land-use decisions that affect their property or community.
As part of the review, the government has released a public consultation paper on the changes to the OMB that it is considering, including allowing for more meaningful and affordable public participation.
Laura Albanese, MPP for York South-Weston is holding a local public meeting to seek input on the proposed changes to the OMB. The public is invited to learn about the OMB’s current role in the land-use planning process, to provide perspective and to review and comment on possible changes the government is considering making to the Board:
Location: York Civic Centre
Date: October 26th, 2016.
Light Refreshments will be provided.
Ontarians can also comment online at Ontario.ca/OMBReview, by email at OMBReview@ontario.ca, or mail a submission to Ontario Municipal Board Review, Ministry of Municipal Affairs, Provincial Planning Policy Branch, 777 Bay Street, 13th Floor, Toronto, Ontario M5G 2E5.
The deadline for comments is December 19, 2016.
