Land use planning affects all aspects of our lives here in Ontario. It helps decide where homes, parks and schools should be located and where roads, sewers and other essential services should be provided. An Official Plan is a policy document that guides short-term and long-term development.

Developing Ramara's Official Plan is a big project, and we will be calling on residents and business owners for input. We will be inviting you to become engaged in the process and to get involved. With your input, we can develop a plan to help achieve the desired future of our community.
