In 1995, the County of Huron (population 60,000) located in Southwestern Ontario embarked upon the development of a new Official Plan. The County's original Plan (adopted in the early 1970s) had gradually lost relevance to many current issues. This, combined with legislative changes, led to a political commitment to renew the Plan. This commitment included a transfer of the Plan renewal process and implementation into the hands of the public through innovative public participation and a willingness to allow the public to develop the new Official Plan.
