OFA opposed the proposed Growth Plan amendments that would promote urban sprawl and put farmland at risk. OFA categorically opposed reducing or providing flexibility for population density targets. OFA believes rural settlements should also be subject to greenfield density targets to reduce urban sprawl and farmland loss. OFA strongly objected to settlement area boundary expansions outside of the municipal comprehensive review process. OFA continues to advocate for fixed, permanent urban boundaries.
