Purpose and Effect of the Adopted Amendment
The purpose and effect of the adopted amendment is to revise and add policies to the Regional Official Plan, including related Schedule revisions, to expand the Bolton Rural Service Centre in order to accommodate planned Caledon and Region of Peel growth to 2031 in accordance with the Provincial Growth Plan.

Through the adopted ROPA, the St. Michael Secondary School (Subject Lands – St. Michael Secondary School on the key map) has been brought into the Bolton Rural Service Centre boundary. The secondary school is located at 9130 Columbia Way.

Extensive stakeholder comments were received and considered throughout the ROPA process.
