Town's growth preference to get 'fair evaluation' forget it Moya

Halton Hills’ preference on the future growth will get a fair hearing by regional planners as they develop the final Sustainable Halton land use concepts to be released next month (April).
So said Ho Wong, acting Chief Planning Official, who updated Halton Hills council members on the progress of the Plan at a recent meeting.
“We’re know of the preference expressed by Halton Hills council and we’re working very hard to ensure it gets a fair evaluation,” said Wong.
The Sustainable Halton Plan looks at the regional needs for residential and industrial/commercial development until the year 2031, primarily through urban boundary expansions in Milton and Georgetown. Town of Halton Hills has already signalled that it would accept an urban boundary expansion that could accommodate the influx of 20,000 more people.
The final land use concepts and options are expected to be released in April, said Wong. Regional council is then slated to select the preferred plan and adopt an interim regional official plan amendment in June— a deadline set by the Province and cannot be changed.
What happens if Halton Hills doesn’t like the preferred plan?, asked Ward 3 Councillor Moya Johnson.
Wong replied the planners are working towards a solution to accommodate all preferences, but acknowledged that Halton Hills of all the four municipalities in the region will be the most affected by any decision.“We’ll leave no stone unturned,” said Wong to come up with an acceptable solution.
However, the bottom line, he said, is that any plan selected must be defensible at the Ontario Municipal Board. The fiscal analysis impact, which is also expected to be released in April, will be important to form a part of the defence, he said
