The purpose of this meeting is to introduce the land-use process
and have a good discussion about community enhancement,
opportunities and constraints to development, and types of land
use that might be appropriate. It is also a chance for you to better
understand the background information gathered to date
regarding development capability and capacity, environmental
considerations and current government policy

The Peers Area Structure Plan will affect:
· New developments and subdivisions
· Recreational usage of land
· Residential development and
· Commercial and Industrial Development
· Community long-term growth
At this early stage, no plan has yet been prepared. Rather, the first
step in the process is to have a discussion with local and
surrounding residents on their thoughts and ideas about the
future evolution of Peers.


This is YOUR opportunity to participate in building the future of
YOUR community!!
