What do you want your community to look like in the next 20 years? How do you define your neighbourhood’s character? What is your vision for MODL? We need your input on the future of the municipality, on the priorities, objectives, plans and regulations as part of our plan review process being conducted over the next two years. The MODL2040 project represents a new approach to planning and property development with the Municipality. As mandated by the Province, the Municipality will create the Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-law that will apply to the entire Municipality.
The current Municipal Planning Strategy extends planning only for those communities who have requested land use controls, including Blockhouse, Riverport, Hebbville, Oakland, Princes Inlet, as well as for Osprey Village and the Lunenburg Municipal Industrial Park, along with Hemford Forest as the 8th Plan Area of the Municipality.
Bill 58 amended the Municipal Government Act to require a minimum level of planning to include all areas within every municipal unit in Nova Scotia by the end of 2022. Through a two-year process of public and stakeholder engagement, the MODL2040 project is designed to determine the appropriate level of minimum planning that will help guide development within the Municipality over the next twenty years.
The up-to-date information about the MODL2040 Project is posted on https://engage.modl.ca/. Sign up now to get a free update and chance to participate in discussions of our community’s future.
