“These short, informational videos will give residents the information they will need to make their project a success and to avoid potentially time consuming and costly setbacks,” said Rick Brady, Director of Planning and Development Services.

The videos were created using Whiteboard animation, which is the process of which an author physically draws and records an illustrated story using a whiteboard and black marker.

The new informational videos can be found at (Residents > Home & Property) or at Town Hall at the Customer Service Unit desk and 2nd Floor, Planning & Development counter.
