How Can We Re-Imagine Stouffville's Vision For The Future?

A Vision is a community’s goal for the future. The Official Plan Vision will help guide land use planning decisions and priorities for the next 20 years. The Town needs your important feedback on the issues facing the community.

This phase of the Town’s Official Plan Review (OPR) will result in a Vision Statement and a set of Guiding principles for the Town’s OP.



Project Overview

The Official Plan Review is undertaken through a comprehensive review of key theme areas according to issues currently being addressed as a community. The comprehensive OPR work program includes the following phases:

  • Phase 1: Visioning and Consultation – will result in a community vision and guiding principles to inform future planning directions, by establishing what the community values and how the Town is envisioned to evolve over the 25-year planning horizon.
  • Phase 2: Background Studies and Discussion Papers – will focus on data collection and the review of background information required to advance the OPR. This phase will also involve the preparation of various Discussion Papers to address the key themes related to growth management, the natural environment, healthy and complete communities, and general technical and housekeeping matters. This phase will culminate with a cursory review of the Secondary Plans to determine recommendations for a potential consolidation strategy.
  • Phase 3: Policy Development – will involve the preparation of Policy Directions Reports and the development of new and updated Official Plan policies to implement the preferred policy directions.
  • Phase 4: Draft New Official Plan – will involve the technical writing, reviewing, evaluating, and implementing policies for the new Official Plan based on work completed to-date.
