You need to keep in mind that if you do not participate in the public process for the Official Plan review, you do not have standing to appeal it to the Ontario Municipal Board after it is passed.  You have to make a submission in writing explaining to Council why you think something is bad planning or outside of its jurisdiction during this window of opportunity (that could end on February 1st) before you can appeal.  According to our legal counsel, endorsement of this letter (ie. providing your name and address) constitutes sufficient participation to appeal at a later date.
