COUNTY OF HALIBURTON
GROWTH MANAGEMENT STRATEGY
2013 - 2014
MHBC was retained by the County of Haliburton to undertake a Growth Management Study. Utilizing population data from Statistics Canada to determine the growth trend in the County, MHBC prepared population and employment projections for each of the Settlement Areas in the County as well as the Rural Area.
Our GIS expert carried out a vacant lands analysis as well as a constraints analysis to determine the existing supply of lands in the County. This information was used to allocate growth projections and to provide justification for the lot creation policies.
’On Behalf of the County, I would like to thank your firm for the excellent work that has been completed on the Growth Management Strategy. The project team did an exemplary job of meeting the County’s needs by developing a quality product, providing and accepting feedback, and undertaking any identified changes quickly and efficiently.
