Comprehensive Review Growth Scenarios – Virtual Open House - May 10th to 14th, 2021
Purpose of the Virtual Open House
The Town of Carleton Place conducts statutory Open Houses and Public Meetings when changes are proposed to land use planning policies like the Official Plan.
It is important for the Town to understand and review the feedback of residents on amendments in order to fully appreciate and analyze the impact of those changes on property owners.
Purpose of the Amendment
The Town has considered the impacts of the population increase and have suggested three (3) possible scenarios for consideration:
Growth Scenario 1: Infill & Intensification of vacant lands and strategic properties in the existing built-up area only, excluding all greenfields.
Growth Scenario 2: Growth including urban greenfields in addition to all other vacant land within the existing built-up area, including a future residential district.
Growth Scenario 3: Growth including both urban greenfields and rural greenfields (e.g., annexed lands) in addition to all other vacant land within the existing built-up area.
Each of the three (3) proposed Growth Scenarios will be explored in more detail in the virtual package.
A Note About COVID
Due to the present COVID-19 pandemic, a traditional “Open House” cannot be hosted at the Town Hall.

The “Virtual” Open House will offer the same sort of viewing and commenting experience remotely.
