Proposed Estill Innovation Community

At the December 21, 2022 Council meeting, Council received a proposal for the use of a Community Infrastructure and Housing Accelerator (CIHA) Order for a proposed development at the property 4361 Sideroad 20 N.

Council did not make a decision on the matter and is seeking community feedback as well as a staff information report on the request for the use of a CIHA at a future Council meeting.

Council has sent a Notice of Intent for Community Feedback, and will be scheduling a Public Information Meeting early in February. View the complete Notice of Intent for Community Feedback.

Please be aware that Township offices are closed from December 26 to January 2, 2023. Staff will follow up upon returning in January 2023.

About Community Infrastructure and Housing Accelerator Orders

The More Homes for Everyone Act, 2022 created a minister’s order in the Planning Act known as the Community Infrastructure and Housing Accelerator Tool. This authority gives the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing the power to make orders to respond to municipal requests for expedited zoning amendments outside of the Greenbelt Area.

For more information regarding the Community Infrastructure and Housing Accelerator Tool can be found at www.ontario.ca/page/community-infrastructure-and-housing-accelerator.
