3. Listening and talking with residents and organizations.

4. Some lands in the ALR have been designated as Residential Reserve ince 2001 and have withstood rigorous reviews and remain as such in the Official Community Plan. Previous councils have been very supportive of infilling in the community, particularly on Highway 9 and Morrow Road.
