Public Meeting Burnt Lands Alvar Re-Zoning

May 5, 2015 @ 6:30 pm

Town of Mississippi Mills set to hear your views on environmental zoning for Burnt Lands Alvar!

 One very effective way you can help protect natural areas is to support municipal government when they consider policy changes that enhance protection of natural areas or restrict development in these areas.

 If you live in the Town of Mississippi Mills, you have that chance Tuesday, May 5, 2015. Council is set to consider public opinion on a proposal to rezone much of Burnt Lands Alvar as an environmental protection zone. This is a good thing! If you agree, then write to tell Council that you support this rezoning (details of where to write are below in the public notice attached).

 Or attend the public meeting to speak in support of the rezoning or hand deliver your letter to the Town Clerk, and the chance to sign in and register your name to be informed of the Council decision.

 When: May 5, 2015 at 6:30 pm.

Where: Town of Mississippi Mills Council Chambers, 3131 Old Perth Road, Almonte, Ontario.


 THE PURPOSE AND INTENT of the Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments are to provide environmental protection for the Burnt Land ANSI from intensive rural development by amending rural development policies in the Community Official Plan and placing the lands within the Burnt Lands ANSI within an Environmental Protection (EP) Zone.

 ANY PERSON may attend the public meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed Official Plan Amendment and the Zoning By-law Amendment. Written submissions regarding the proposed amendments are to be filed with the Town Clerk at the Town of Mississippi Mills Municipal Office, 3131 Old Perth Road, R.R. #2, P.O. Box 400, Almonte, Ontario, K0A 1A0.

Further information about the Burnt Lands Alvar may be found elsewhere on our website; as well as an opportunity to donate to our Burnt Lands Alvar Campaign.
