Community Improvement Plan

Please be advised that by Resolution No. R2016-245 the Council of the Municipality of Trent Lakes adopted By-law B2016-031, being ‘A By-law to Adopt a Community Improvement Plan for the Hamlet of Buckhorn, in the Municipality of Trent Lakes in accordance with Section 28 of the Planning Act, as amended’.

The Trent Lakes Economic Development Committee will be the oversight committee for the Community Improvement Plan. A copy of the adopted final plan is available at the link provided below:

Community Improvement Plan Final – April 19, 2016

Proposed Buckhorn CIP – January 2016
Buckhorn CIP Background Report – January 2016
Buckhorn CIP Preliminary Recommendations – October 2015
Buckhorn Hamlet Core Design Guidelines – April 2015

Background: Community improvement planning, one of the many sustainable community planning tools found in the Planning Act, can help municipalities address challenges as it provides a means of planning and financing development activities that effectively use, reuse and restore lands, buildings and infrastructure.

The Municipality of Trent Lakes in partnership with the Township of Selwyn is in the process of developing a Community Improvement Plan for the Hamlet of Buckhorn.  A part of the planning process will be a requirement for Public Meetings and public input.  The first public meeting was held on July 23, 2015 at the Buckhorn Community Centre, others will follow.

We hope that interested business owners and citizens will attend and actively participate in these community consultation initiatives.
