From Jeff Leiper, city councillor, https://kitchissippiward.ca/content/kitchissippi-ward-forum-november-26-2019-600-800pm-focus-planning-and-intensification

We are hosting our next Kitchissippi Ward Forum on Tuesday, November 26 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Hintonburg Community Centre (Wellington Room). This time, we would like to focus on intensification, planning and growth in our City, focusing on the new Official Plan, as well as our Westboro-based policy studies (the Westboro Interim Control By-Law Study, currently underway, and the Westboro-Dominion Planning Study, up-coming). We will have staff from the Planning department available to speak to these three studies.

We hope to see you there!
