About the Official Plan (The OP) 

The OP is a blueprint to help guide Greater Sudbury’s development over the next twenty years. It establishes long-term goals, shapes policies and outlines social, economic, natural and built environment strategies for our city. It guides municipal decision-making on important issues that affect the daily life of every City of Greater Sudbury resident. From the location of parks and other community facilities, to the development of residential, commercial and industrial areas, these decisions shape the future of our community.

Phase 2 of the Official Plan Review will address matters related to transportation, infrastructure, and economic development.
