Purpose    

Official Plan Amendment 41 (OPA 41), if approved by Town Council, would fulfill a Provincial mandate under Section 2.1 of the (2014) Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) to identify a Natural Heritage System (NHS) in Ecoregions 6E in which the Town of Mono resides.  OPA 41 also fulfills a key policy under Section 4.2.2 of the Provincial Growth Plan for relevant lands in the Town as well as supporting related key goals in the associated Provincial Plans for the Greenbelt, Niagara Escarpment and Oak Ridges Moraine.

A key policy theme of OPA 41 is to protect and enhance natural heritage features and areas in conjunction with decisions on applications for proposed developments and/or site alterations under Part III of the Planning Act.  The natural heritage policies in OPA 41 will broadly protect, conserve, and enhance the Town’s natural heritage features and areas and will also provide the local basis for a future County-wide NHS to be undertaken as part of the Dufferin County Official Plan Municipal Comprehensive Review.

No key map is provided as OPA 41 is a Municipal-wide Amendment.

OPA 41 can be reviewed at the Town Municipal Office during regular business office hours and is also available online: OPA 41
