The Town of Saugeen Shores is dedicated to encouraging appropriate growth and development that improves our community and follows the vision laid out in our Official Plan.

Council approved an Economic Development Community Improvement Plan to attract businesses in key sectors, including the following:

  • Affordable housing
  • Hotels
  • Sector support
  • Manufacturing

Attainable Housing

Saugeen Shores has formed the Attainable Housing Task Force. Its purpose is to increase the supply of attainable housing throughout our community.

The Attainable Housing Task Force is seeking public input on attainable housing in our community. The survey will help the Task Force understand the current needs and desires from the community, information which will be used to make recommendations to Council later this year.
