The regular meeting of Council of Monday, March 17, 2014 will be held at 2:00PM to consider regular business and the Zoning By-Law. The evening meeting will commence at 6:30PM and is reserved for the Clark Street public meeting, and Fire Organizational Review.
Members of the public are invited to provide feedback about their experience with the provincial Greenbelt Plan and accompanying Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan (ORMCP) during a series of upcoming community consultation sessions or via an online survey.
Sessions will be held on:

In 2015, the province is undertaking a mandatory 10-year review of its Greenbelt Plan, ORMCP and Niagara Escarpment Plan. In preparation, Durham Region has engaged a consultant to assist in conducting a consultation exercise intended to help influence the Province’s upcoming legislated review.
The comments received, via these outlets, will be used to develop a Regional submission that highlights the major themes, challenges and opportunities that emerged from the consultation process, with recommendations to address these findings. The final report will be forwarded to the Province to provide a Durham perspective about the 2015 Greenbelt Plan Review.
Residents who are unable to attend a consultation session are invited to participate in an online survey, which can be found at www.durham.ca/greenbeltreview.
A Public Meeting regarding the permanent closure and sale of the unopened Clark Street road allowance will be discussed at the
March 17th, 2014 Council Meeting at the Township of Scugog Council Chambers 181 Perry Street, Port Perry (Upper Lever)

Please be advised that the street formerly known as Brock/Scugog Townline Road has been renamed Brock Concession Road 1. This means that both sides of the road (north side – Township of Brock and south side – Township of Scugog) now have the same name. It is believed that aligning the road name is in the best interest of the residents on the road and promotes public safety by ensuring a timely response to any emergency that may occur on that road. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact Fire Chief Richard Miller at 905-985-2384 or email@example.com
The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) has made a decision to finalize a guideline entitled, "Excess Soil Management - A Guide for Best Management Practices". Township staff will consider concepts within the Guide to ensure that Scugog is meeting best management practices. For a copy of the guide, please click on the link below.
In view of the recent ice storm and resulting major power outages, it’s time to think about being prepared! The Township of Scugog would like to take this time to remind you that it is your responsibility to make sure that you are able to care for your own needs and the needs of your family for 72 hours.
This means that if there is a weather emergency, and the power goes out, it is your responsibility to have the food and other essentials on hand to take care of yourself for 72 hours. Are you prepared?
Do you have a family emergency kit?
Have you made an emergency plan?
In the event of an emergency, please be sure to check on your neighbours and family members to ensure their safety.
The Township of Scugog would also like to take this time to remind you of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. In view of the recent deaths during the ice storm and ensuing power outages, DO NOT use portable generators inside the house or garage. Portable generators should be located carefully to ensure that exhaust fumes do not enter the house. Please ensure that any generator that is used has recognized approved labels and that the unit has proper connection receptacles and circuit breakers. Barbecue and camping cookstoves are for outdoor use only. DO NOT use indoors.

In partnership with the Region of Durham, the Township conducted a Business Retention & Expansion (BR&E) project. This community driven initiative assists with promoting jobs and business growth within the Township of Scugog. Over 114 local business owners and 29 volunteer interviewers participated in the project.
A summary of results and proposed action plan were presented to Council at the December 2, 2013 meeting. The proposed action plan includes five key areas; 1) Build relationships between government and business to be open for business, 2) Support business development and expansion to inspire entrepreneurship, 3) Invest in culture and heritage to celebrate our identity and foster business development, 4) Grow a talented workforce to create a vibrant future of business opportunities, 5) Continually improve infrastructure to serve the needs of businesses, residents and tourists.
The next steps in the BR+E project are to work through the action plan with business owners, organizations and government to keep building a vibrant local economy. The Durham Federation of Agriculture, Scugog Chamber of Commerce and Port Perry BIA are also partners in the project.
