"Encouraging and enabling responsible land stewardship in and around Ottawa"


Our Council plans its projects through an Annual Work Plan, usually made up during the Fall. The plan is based on our Strategic Plan's Vision, Mission Statement and Goals and is approved at one of our monthly meetings. The following list is the projects we'll be working on in 2012.
