Below are some highlights from the regular Municipality of North Grenville Council Meeting held on Monday, May 14, 2018:
New Official Plan Adopted: Council adopted a new Official Plan, which is the document that guides development and land-use planning in the Municipality.

The next and final step is for the Official Plan to be provided to the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville as they are the approval body for the Plan. A copy of the adopted Official Plan can be found on the Municipal website – www.northgrenville.ca/document-library.
