Circulation List for December 13, 2023

A new "food forest" has been planted, there's a public meeting on the City's proposal to allow up to four units on a residential property, and the proposed changes to the City's Official Plan (not exactly as advertised!)

๐Ÿ™๏ธ๐Ÿง City of Barrie Official Plan Modifications

  • Official Plan Recommendations:

  • The City's submission to the Ministry of Affairs and Housing, concerning the City's Official Plan recommendations

  • This submission shows that very few provincial changes are being reverted, and certainly not all of the changes requested by environmental or housing groups. The submission very clearly prioritizes developers and land owners wishing to make money off of Barrie lands, and ignores the wishes of actual Barrie residents. The City's press release (above) was HIGHLY misleading in this regard.

  • Another oddity in the submission is that former Mayors -- who are not currently on Council nor members of City staff -- were allowed to use the City's letterhead/logo for submission of their submissions of a form letter to the province, which is a puzzling mis-use of corporate identity

  • Many of the other form letters are multiple "as a business owner" submissions from the same company

  • Nil

A colourful pile of documents, envelopes and letters.
