In the fall of 2019, the Rural Municipality of Springfield initiated three new planning projects that will further define its future growth. The projects are:
1. A secondary plan for the West Pine Ridge Area
2. A secondary plan for the Oakbank South Area
3. A comprehensive review of Springfield's Zoning By-Law
In November 2019, a series of in-person public information sessions were held to gather information from residents and landowners in creation of the Secondary Plans and Zoning By-law (Phase 1 Engagement). The draft Secondary Plans and draft Zoning By-law were presented virtually through a narrated presentation and other documents posted on the RM of Springfield website in December 2020. A survey requesting feedback on the documents was available until mid-January 2021 (Phase 2 Engagement).
THIS IS THE THIRD AND FINAL ROUND OF ENGAGEMENT
We will be hosting three virtual open houses in May to present the final draft Secondary Plans and Zoning By-law. The open houses on each project will present the final draft documents and highlight changes made as a result of feedback received during Phase 2 Engagement.
We will be using GoTo Meeting as the platform for the virtual open houses. To receive a link for the open house, please register by contacting: Shannon Blake, T: (204) 259-1627, E: Shannon Blake
Content below will be posted on the day of the virtual open house for each project.
If you would like a hard copy of the presentation and supporting documents, they can be picked up during regular working hours (9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday; Closed for Lunch Noon to 1:00pm) at the Municipal Planning and Development Office (vestibule) located at Unit 1 – 686 Main Street in Oakbank.
If you have any questions on the project, please contact Meagan Boles, T: (204) 259-1628, E: Meagan Boles
