Notice of Public Information Centre - Bethune Street Project

Location: Holiday Inn Peterborough-Waterfront

The Project

The City of Peterborough (City) and its consultant (AECOM), in accordance with the recommendations of the Municipal Class EA study completed in 2014, have initiated the detailed design and contract administration for the Jackson Creek Flood Diversion sewer, as well as sanitary sewer upgrades, from Dalhousie Street to Dublin Street, to accommodate growth in the north end of the City. These construction activities present an opportunity for the complete reconstruction of all surface features on the Bethune Street corridor and a portion of Charlotte and Townsend Streets. As such, a detailed plan for the reconstruction of Bethune Street and the effected portions of Charlotte and Townsend Streets is being developed to establish a vision for the project area. In addition, a land use planning and urban design study is being completed to understand current and future conditions and support explorations to develop a context-sensitive streetscape plan and create positive urban spaces and transitions to surrounding areas while integrating other community needs in the area.

Purpose of Public Information Centre #1

You are invited to attend an afternoon or evening open house session of the Public Information Centre (PIC) on Thursday, May 19, 2016. The purpose of this open house is to: 1) introduce the land use planning and urban design study and collect background information; 2) present and solicit feedback on the preliminary streetscape strategies being considered, including the potential affects to all modes of transportation in the project area; and 3) review the proposed criteria to be used to evaluate each of these alternative strategies.
