Please note that this summary is not a full representation of the meeting. For the Official Record please refer to the Council Minutes in the next Council Agenda.

Public Meeting Scheduling Process

The way Public Meetings are scheduled in the Township of Springwater has changed. Complex applications such as Official Plan Amendments, Subdivision Applications etc. will continue to require a preliminary information report on the Council agenda, while less complex applications such as Minor Rezoning Applications etc. will only require an internal memo to Council. The process has been updated to improve efficiencies and reduce delays for applicants.
