Petrolia is growing again with many current and
potential developments on the horizon and is seeing a surge in residential property
improvement projects. To continue to
provide excellent service to residential, commercial, industrial developers,
and residents, the Town of Petrolia is pleased to announce that the County of
Lambton has supplied the town with two new planners. Senior Planner Maria Cossa-Rossi, and Planner
Randi Burke will be working out of the Petrolia Municipal Office a total of four
full days each week.
The County of Lambton and the Town of Petrolia have partnered for more
than 20 years with a shared Planner, and Clerk, Mandi Pearson said, “As part of
our commitment to provide the best customer service to developers and residents,
and to help make the development process easy for them, we are pleased to have
a Planner at the Petrolia Municipal Office four days per week.”
The role of the Planner is to help the town determine the best way
to use land and resources. They help draft land use policies and review
proposed developments. In addition, the
Planner meets with public officials, developers, staff, and the public
regarding development plans and land use. They gather and analyze economic and
environmental studies, censuses, and market research data, and conduct field
investigations to analyze factors affecting land use.
Planner hours at the Petrolia Municipal Office are
Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Residents are welcome to visit the Municipal
Office on either of these days to speak with a Planner regarding your planning
