The Township of Essa is undertaking an​ update to their Official Plan document, and your input is needed. The Township's current Official Plan was put into effect on July 6, 2001. 

Notice of Study Commencement

The Township of Essa is developing a Transportation and Trails Master Plan (TTMP) that will help the Township plan a multimodal transportation network to accommodate forecast growth in population and employment.

The goal of the TTMP is to provide a roadmap for the planning, future design, and implementation of transportation and trail infrastructure throughout the Township. The Master Plan will focus on developing a transportation system that is well- connected, accessible, and safe for all users, while also supporting future travel demands that come with growth.

Over the course of the Study, the Township will engage with residents, key stakeholders and decision-makers to shape the vision, goals, and objectives to guide the direction of the TTMP, and ultimately its proposed solutions and recommendations.

Study Process

The TTMP will be completed in accordance with the Master Plan process identified by the Municipal Engineers Association, adhering to requirements of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment.
