The Rural Municipality of West River will host a public workshop about land use on January 25 from 7–8:30 pm at the Afton Community Centre (1552 Rte 19). Pre-registration is required. The session will be also be livestreamed on Facebook @planwestriver.

The official plan sets out policies for land use and describes how the community will develop over time, including economic, physical, social, and environmental goals. The land-use bylaw will identify which land uses are permitted, where they can go, and the standards those uses have to meet.

Since choices are being made about how the official plan will direct land uses, everyone is encouraged to join and share their ideas.

Pre-register by noon on January 21 by contacting the municipality at admin@westriverpe.ca or 675-7000.
