Town of Port au Port East
Municipal Plan Survey and Public Meeting #1 - Town Office
7:30-8:30pm, Thursday, November 12, 2020
The Town of Port au Port East is currently in the process of developing a new Municipal Plan and Development Regulations. The new Plan will be the roadmap for the community over the next 10 years. The Plan will contain policy and proposal statements regarding economic development, protection of the environment, and the future form and development of land uses. The Regulations will contain the detailed provisions to give effect to the Plan (e.g. zoning). The current Municipal Plan and Development Regulations can be viewed here.
The Town has retained SCP consultants to develop the new Plan. Public participation is a central part of this process as the document must reflect the priorities and values of the community as a whole. Town Council would greatly appreciate if you took the time to complete the brief (10-minute) “Envision Port au Port East 2031: Municipal Plan Survey” found here.
There will be a survey draw on November 20, 2020 for a $100 gift certificate for participants who have completed the survey and provided contact info. It is preferred that you complete the survey on-line, but you can pick up a hard copy at the Town Office and return to same.
SCP consultants will also be holding a public meeting, tentatively set for 7:30-8:30pm, Thursday, November 12, 2020 at the Maria Regina Parish Hall to give an overview of the Plan development process and how to stay engaged and informed throughout. There will be a brief presentation at this session with a follow-up informal discussion.
