I am writing to state my support for the following changes to the OMB and how it operates:

I am in full of support of:

•Only allowing the OMB to hear appeals on the “validity of the decision” by council, limiting the OMB’s ability to hear appeals and completely overturn decisions
•Preventing appeals of secondary plans
•Requiring the OMB to send “significant new information” arising from a hearing back to councils for re-evaluation before rendering a decision
•More actively promoting mediation to settle disputes, preventing adversarial hearings
•Better training for OMB members, who are appointed by the Province
