County hosts Open Houses to update public on the status of the Archaeological Management Plan

 

Midhurst/ October 19, 2018 – The County is hosting Open House sessions in early November to update the public on the progress of the Simcoe County Archaeological Management Plan (AMP). The AMP project is being undertaken by the County's Planning department to identify, protect and conserve Simcoe County's archaeological features and address municipal planning requirements.

The scheduled Open House sessions include a brief presentation on draft archaeological mapping, policies, procedures and recommendations based on feedback received during the consultation process to-date. Presentations will be consistent at each meeting. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the project one-on-one with the County's archaeological consultants and County Planning staff. Fall sessions are being held at the following times and locations:
