PUBLIC NOTICE:

The Town of Kippens is currently in the process of developing a new Municipal Plan and Development Regulations. The new Plan will be the roadmap for the community over the next 10 years. The Plan will contain policy and proposal statements regarding economic development, protection of the environment, and the future form and development of land uses. The Regulations will contain the detailed provisions to give effect to the Plan (e.g. zoning). The current Municipal Plan and Development Regulations can be viewed here: https://www.mae.gov.nl.ca/registry/community/kippens/index.html

The Town has retained SCP consultants (https://smithcommunityplan.wixsite.com/home) to develop the new Plan. Public participation is a central part of this process as the document must reflect the priorities and values of the community as a whole. Town Council would greatly appreciate if you took the time to complete the brief (10-minute) “Kippens Forward 2030: Municipal Plan Survey” found here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeAzNmgbeZFECddY0poWr0LER4Ex6OsAO1jw8lCRm1WG8uOgg/viewform

There will be a survey draw on February 21, 2020 for a $100 gift certificate for participants who have completed the survey. It is preferred that you complete the survey on-line, but you can pick up a hard copy at the Town Office and return to same.

SCP consultants will also be holding a public meeting, tentatively set for 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at the Kippens Community Centre (15 Gaudon’s Lane) to give an overview of the Plan development process and how to stay engaged and informed throughout. There will be a brief presentation at this session with a follow-up informal discussion.

Please stay up-to-date on this process by checking the Town’s Website and Facebook page regularly. Further, please check the Town’s Website or Facebook page, or call the Town Office on February 17, 2020, for confirmation that the public meeting will proceed as it may be cancelled due to inclement weather.
