Barrie Innisfil Boundary Adjustment
Act Passes Second Reading
Bill 196, the Barrie-Innisfil Boundary Adjustment Act, 2009 has passed parliament's second reading. If passed, the bill will extend the southern boundary of the City of Barrie to include approximately 2,293 hectares of lands currently in the Town of Innisfil. These lands are contiguous to Barrie's current urban structure and would enable Barrie to extend its existing urban services to these lands. This is critical for the successful implementation of the provincial policy framework in the Simcoe area.
Once in effect, property of the Town of Innisfil and the County of Simcoe in the lands affected by the boundary change would transfer to the City of Barrie on January 1, 2010.
