An official plan outlines how land in a municipality should be used. It is prepared with input from the community and helps to ensure that future planning and development will meet the specific needs of the community.

An Official Plan deals with issues, such as:

  • Where new housing, industry, offices and shops will go;
  • What services will be needed (ex. roads, water mains, sewers, parks and schools); and
  • When, and in what order, parts of your community will grow

In 2015, Marathon approved its most recent Official Plan.

We update our Official Plan every five years to reflect changes in the community and economy in accordance with the Ontario Planning Act.
