The Cambridge Official plan has some residents excited and concerned.
A developing plan was reviewed by the planning services department during a council meeting yesterday.
Director of policy planning Elaine Brunn Shaw presented the review and how it will affect the city. She talked about creating complete communities while using properties efficiently and protecting agricultural land. She mentioned some key areas for developing such as Greenfield and Blair Road.
The plan also included building on the Dumfries Conservation area which is located beside the YMCA on Hespeler Road. Eleanor Hueton asked for the land to be removed from the plan; her father purchased the land in 1916 and she wishes to keep it unscathed after he donated the land to Ontario in the late 1960’s.
Downtown Preston and the Galt core are also included in the plan.
The deadline for comments about the official developing plan is Oct. 21, 2011
