An Official Plan provides direction and policy objectives for the growth and development of the community and establishes where land uses (e.g. residential, commercial, and industrial) should be located.
A Zoning By-law is a legal document that implements the policies of the Official Plan. The Zoning By-law translates the land use planning objectives and policies of the Official Plan into detailed standards for how a property may be developed, including the types of uses that are permitted on a property; where buildings and other structures can be located; lot sizes and dimensions; parking requirements; building heights; and setbacks from streets.
At the Public Open House, the Draft Official Plan and Draft Zoning By-law will be available for review. Staff from the Township will be available to answer questions and obtain comments.
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The Township of Ignace is undertaking the legislated review and update of its Official Plan and Zoning By-law as required by the Planning Act. The Township’s current Official Plan was adopted by Council in 2005 and approved by the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing in 2010. The Township’s current Zoning By-law was adopted by Council in 2010. The updated Official Plan and Zoning By-law will replace the existing Official Plan and Zoning By-law currently in effect.
THE SUBJECT LANDS include all lands located within the Township of Ignace municipal boundary. Accordingly, no key map is provided.
