On July 24, 2018, Council approved the Jericho Lands Policy Planning Program, which is the start of a two-year process to create a policy statement.

The policy statement will establish principles, objectives, and policies on: reconciliation, affordable housing, land use, density, height, public benefits, transportation, built form, character, sustainability, infrastructure, and phases of development.

With all the complaints on the forum about a lack of density, tall buildings, and the shortcomings in the various community plans, here's a chance for our little community to do something about it.

For those who don't try to get involved now, I don't want to hear any complaining in the future.
