Seguin Township MZO Application Update - March 8, 2022

On January 5, 2022 Seguin Township submitted a Minister's Zoning Order (MZO) application to the Minister of Municipal Affairs to rezone approximately 700 acres of land to allow for residential development. Submitting this application was a first step toward increasing attainable housing options in our region.

Read the November 15, 2021 announcement here for some background on the township's decision to use this tool to address the West Parry Sound area's critical housing shortage.

Seguin Township is now awaiting a decision from the Minister of Municipal Affairs. We will share an update as soon as is communicated to the township.

In the meantime, we encourage residents, business owners and everyone in our community review the following resources:

West Parry Sound Housing Summit Community Impact Study

MZO responses and letters of support from the West Parry Sound community

Preliminary Functional Servicing Report completed by Tatham Engineering

Environmental Constraints Analysis completed by Hutchinson Environmental

Planning Justification Report completed by MHBC Planning Urban Design and Landscape Architecture

Ontario Housing Affordability Task Force Report

Seguin Township MZO full application package

We also invite you to participate in the poll questions on this website. If you have any outstanding questions, we encourage you to share them here as well.
