Rochester Field Official Plan Amendment on hold pending park consultations

You are here

Residents may recall that this summer, the community was notified of a new Official Plan amendment process to designate part of the NCC Rochester Field land as developable, and part as perpetual park (read more here). I missed getting it into this week's newsletter, but wanted to provide a brief head's-up that that process has been paused. With the City's buy-in, the NCC has decided it wants to do more consultations on the future use of the park area before seeking the amendment. Timing for those consultations is up in the air, but will likely be this spring. I will, of course, work with the NCC to notify residents of that process as soon as details are firmed up.
