The Project

The City of Peterborough, through their consultant D.M. Wills Associates Limited is commencing a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Project to consider urbanization of Webber Avenue and Rye Street and the long-term protective strategy for the north reach of Harper Creek.

The Project is being carried out in accordance with the planning and design process for Schedule C projects as outlined in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document for Municipal Road Projects (October 2000, as amended).

Upon completion of the Project, an Environmental Study Report will be prepared and made available for Public and Agency review and comment.
