Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for the Otonabee River Trail Extension

The Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) has been concluded for the Otonabee River Trail extension and Shoreline Improvements around Little Lake, from Del Crary Park to Haggart Street. The process concluded with the last Public Information Centre (PIC) held on June 4, 2015. The preliminary design drawings have been posted to this section of the website.
 
A Traffic Study was undertaken to understand the implications various trail design options would have on area traffic. The Traffic Study also addresses a petition received from Ware Street residents who were interested in having traffic calming measures implemented. Feedback was received from Ware Street residents who attended the June 4 PIC. The final version of the Traffic Study is also posted to this section of the website.
 
Planning Staff are intending to recommend the trail preliminary design, shoreline improvements and traffic calming measures at the Planning Committee meeting scheduled on August 24, 2015.
 
Not part of the EA, but also undertaken recently, was a Land-Use/Urban Design Study for the Special Policy Area identified in Schedule J of the City's Official Plan. The Final Report has been posted to this section of the City's website. Inquiries have been received regarding the process after the conclusion of the Study. Planning Staff are intending to present its conclusions at the Planning Committee meeting scheduled on August 24, 2015. People are welcome to speak as a delegate at the City Council meeting typically held two weeks after the Planning Committee meeting.

Before there can be any redevelopment of properties in the Special Policy Area, it is important to understand that there will be further opportunity to comment through the Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment process pursuant to The Planning Act.
