Neighbourhood Meeting: Proposed Development in Ward 7

This Neighbourhood Meeting is your first opportunity to hear about a proposed development from the applicant, understand the City’s planning approval process and timelines and give you the chance to ask questions.

The proposal is to rezone the lands located at 851 Essa Road from Agriculture (AG), Environmental Protection (EP), and Rural Residential (RR) pursuant to Zoning By-law 054-04 (Innisfil) to Residential Annexed (RA), Residential Multiple Annexed (RMA), Environmental Protection (EP), Open Space (OS), and Mixed Use Corridor (MU2) pursuant to Zoning By-law 2009-141. In addition to rezoning, the proposal is to subdivide the lands to create 478 residential units and 0.348 hectares of neighbourhood commercial.


  • A presentation from the applicant of the development concept;
  • City review process and timing;
  • An opportunity to meet the applicant, City staff and Ward Councillor;
  • Ask questions, provide your thoughts, comments and concerns regarding the proposed development.


  • City staff recommendations on the application or a detailed analysis on the proposal (this will occur later in the review process);
  • A debate on the merits of the proposal between City staff and the Applicant.
