Local drinking water protected with Province’s support

In December 2021, the Province of Ontario approved the City of Guelph’s request to adjust its municipal boundaries to include the Dolime Quarry lands. This decision, along with the approval for a zoning change to allow future residential development, is a community-supported solution to protect local drinking water and sustain our future.

The new residential development will be shaped by a thorough public planning process with opportunities for the community to provide input. The City expects land use studies and planning for the residential development to begin in 2022.
