Help Guelph Envision Guelph

Hey everybody! Want to see what the city might look like a quarter-century hence? Well for the next three nights you have your chance. Look here for all the details.

GUELPH, ON, April 16, 2010 – The City of Guelph invites community members and local media to attend one of three open house events titled Envision Guelph. Participants will review the City’s plans for managing growth, building healthy communities and preserving natural resources.

"These Envision Guelph open house events encourage people to join us as we picture Guelph 25 years from now," says Marion Plaunt, Guelph’s Manager of Policy Planning and Urban Design. "We are hoping people will also share what’s important to them as the city continues to grow and change."

The Envision Guelph open house events are part of the City’s Official Plan update. The Official Plan incorporates policies that govern residential development, commercial development and other land uses, natural and cultural heritage conservation, and the city’s transportation and energy systems along with other related policies and studies.

"The proposed changes to the Official Plan help to ensure that we manage growth and encourage investment while protecting and preserving Guelph’s natural resources, green spaces and overall quality of life," adds Plaunt.
