Chelsea launches master plan survey

Survey itself receives criticism

By Hunter Cresswell

Master plans are where the rubber hits the road in terms of the future of an area and how residents can affect that future. But residents can only have a say if they take part in the process, which is starting to take place in MRC des Collines municipalities, and some people aren’t happy with what Chelsea has done so far.

“[Master plans] gives the vision and orientation for the way we plan,” MRC des Collines Prefect and Chelsea Mayor Caryl Green said.

The last MRC Master Plan was last completed in 2005 and the Quebec government approved the 2020 plan in February, which starts the clock: each municipality has two years to bring their respective master plans in line with the MRC Master Plan and have each individual plan vetted by the MRC council of mayors.
