Beginning at 1:00pm on Wednesday, December 12th, 2018, the Town of Wolfville will hold a Public Participation Meeting in the Council Chambers of Town Hall – 359 Main Street – to discuss possible amendments to the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) and Land Use By-Law (LUB). These amendments would establish clear parameters for the craft beverage industry in the Town of Wolfville.
The Town has been conducting a comprehensive review of its planning documents (MPS & LUB) and establishing parameters for the craft beverage industry (e.g. breweries, cideries, etc.) is a part of this work. The purpose of the meeting is to receive feedback on potential amendments to the planning documents related to this land use. Potential amendments will be presented at the meeting and feedback sought. The proposed amendments will be available as part of the Planning Advisory Committee Agenda Package, which is expected to be available on the Town website (www.wolfville.ca/planning-advisory-committee.html) by 4:30pm on Friday, December 7th.
The Planning Advisory Committee will provide a recommendation to Committee of the Whole (Council) on the amendments and Council will ultimately decide whether to amend the planning documents after a Public Hearing is held. If you cannot attend this meeting, feedback can be submitted in writing and will be included for PAC and Council consideration.
You may also ask to be added to the e-mailing list for these amendments so that we can keep you informed as the process moves forward.
