Phase 2

In April 2016, as part of the Phase 2 work plan, the OP Review Consulting Team prepared a report entitled "Final Policy Options & Key Directions Report" (pdf).  A description of the guiding principles to be used during this review is included in this report, together with a discussion regarding all of the key issues (and corresponding policy options) that need to be addressed during Phase 3.

A special meeting of LaSalle Council is being held on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at Town Hall (in the Council Chambers), starting at 7 pm, to present the findings from the April 2016 Phase 2 report.

A 2nd Newsletter (pdf) was released in May of 2016, outlining the guiding principles that are being used in this OP Review.
