Maggies Place Development Plan

On April 10th Council hosted a presentation of the draft plan for work package 1 of Maggies Place Development Plan by Tract Consulting. The meeting was attended by about 50 residents and had a constructive discussion that has influenced the draft plan. Revisions are currently being made for Councils consideration based on the feedback.

April 3rd Update: Due to uncertainty of weather tonight and road conditions the scheduled meeting for Maggies Place Development Plan is being postponed to Monday, April 10th. We want to ensure that everyone is able to get out to the meeting safely. The location and time will remain as Murray’s Pond Fishing and Country Club 7 p.m. 

______________________________________________

Over the last few weeks, as a part of the public engagement process, we have received a great deal of information and input from residents and stakeholders. We are incredibly encouraged by the level of involvement that we have seen. It has always been a priority for the Town to ensure that this is a cooperative plan. With the level of engagement we have experienced, more time will be needed for out consultants to consider and incorporate that information and input into what will be the proposed plan. A big thank you to everyone that has been involved in this process! The proposed plan will now be presented on Monday, April 3rd at Murray’s Pond Country and Fishing Club. (revised to Monday, April 10th)

The Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s has begun the creation process of a Maggies Place Development Plan. As a result of the Town purchasing a piece of land on Maggies Place, for the primary purpose of a Town Depot,  water and sewer services will now be brought in through Meadow Heights to service the Town land. The expansion of services provide an opportune time to consider the future of the whole area,as servicing will now available to a larger area of previously undeveloped land. In addition much of this area was previously designated agriculture by the Province. This designation has been removed (but remains municipally zoned agriculture) and Council has committed to reviewing the zoning of the area to determine the best use of the land.

This development plan is primarily a planning process that is meant to consider the area as a whole in terms of zoning, road network and future plans in conjunction with landowners of the area and the public. There are three individual work packages encompassing three overlapping parcels of land in the Maggies Place area. Council has contracted Tract Consulting to complete the project with a heavy emphasis on public engagement, both with landowners and the public in general.

We engaged landowners of the area to inform them of the planning project and process on January 11th. Following that a meeting on July 18th was scheduled with the public to introduce the project to the community. These meetings were meant to launch the planning project. Meeting minutes and questions were taken and will be summarized and answered here in the near future.

We are committed to comprehensive engagement throughout this process with a great deal of open public consultation. If you have any questions or comments please contact Jeff Lawlor, Director, Economic Development Marketing and Communications at [email protected] or 895-8000 ext 222.
