The City of Sarnia is undertaking a growth management exercise to re-imagine and re-create the land use conditions for economic investment that will position Sarnia to continue to evolve as a community of choice. The project is comprised of three components, which will run concurrently as various times throughout the project.

MUNICIPAL COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW (MCR)

A Land Needs Assessment to confirm land needs for residential and employment uses. This will inform decisions regarding potential boundary adjustment and/or conversion of employment lands to other uses.

OFFICIAL PLAN REVIEW

The Official Plan is being modernized with a focus on flexibility and simplicity. This will result in a more simplified document that will help reduce red tape and investment risk for the City.

ZONING BY-LAW REVIEW

The new Zoning By-law will support the implementation of the Official Plan and support the City’s goals and objectives for development and city building. This includes development standards that are easy to understand, clearly illustrated and support uses that are important from a community perspective.
