Project Update: Stop Sprawl Orillia
APRIL 12, 2022 – Yesterday, Orillia City Council unanimously voted for Option 2. This Option was based on the Community Vision Statement: “Orillia will focus the majority of development on building complete communities, prioritizing infill, and growing up rather than out after 2025.”
As Council voted for Option 2, an update to the City’s Land Needs Assessment to consider a higher minimum intensification target and a higher minimum designated greenfield density target is now required. Once the revisions have occurred, Council will assess and make their final decision.
