Official Plan that best reconciles the various interests of our citizens, our resources and the potential of our territory.” The UCPR has scheduled three open houses in Rockland, Oct. 23, at city hall, Casselman, Oct. 24, at town hall, and in L’Orignal, Oct. 30, in the counties chamber. Each public forum runs from 3 to 8 p.m., with counties staff attending to answer questions.

The preliminary report on the OP re- view, including appendices, is available for download at the counties website at www.
