City of Orillia Municipal Comprehensive Review
A Municipal Comprehensive Review (MCR) is a long-range land use planning process. It is the technical process which the City of Orillia will use to inform and update a new Official Plan and apply the policies of the Province's Growth Plan.
In 2021, the City of Orillia requested to have Hemson Consulting Ltd. present their Final Report regarding the Land Needs Assessment (LNA) for the City in order to implement the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe. This was one of three reports completed by Hemson Consulting Ltd. as part of the City's municipal comprehensive review (MCR) that is currently underway. Hemson Consulting also completed an Intensification Strategy and the Employment Land Strategy.
The City of Orillia is required to accommodate a growth forecast of 49,000 people and 26,000 employees by 2051. The LNA indicated the City has insufficient land area to accommodate the amount of population and employment growth to the year 2051 within its current municipal boundaries.
As the process moves forward and additional information is provided to the Township of Oro-Medonte, updates will be included on this page.
