A Comprehensive Settlement Area Boundary Study, which envelops all of the urban and rural areas within the county, was prepared by the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Planning Department.
The study is now available for public consumption and examination on the County website: www.sdgcounties.ca. The public is encouraged to give feedback on the study.
After reading the report, it appears that there are no changes proposed for Morrisburg’s urban settlement area.
The study does recommend minor changes for both Iroquois and Williamsburg.
According to the study summary, “no change to the boundaries is proposed for the Rural Settlement Areas of Ault Island, Dixon Corners, Glen Becker, Hainesville or Riverside Heights.”
“The area east of Elma is proposed to be added to the Rural Settlement Area.”
“Mariatown is recommended to be recognized as a Rural Settlement Area.”
Minor changes are suggested for Dunbar, Dundela, Irena, Winchester Springs, Glen Stewart, and Stampville.
