Effective January 14, Oakville is under a stay-at-home order as part of the second provincial emergency due to COVID-19. Other restrictions are in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines. The town is reviewing the provincial declaration and will post any service impacts as soon as possible.
The shoreline at Berta Point on Bronte Creek is in poor condition and the Town of Oakville is considering alternatives for improvements. The purpose of this project is to provide shore stability, overall enhancement of the environmental conditions, and improved public access to the shoreline. The town is considering ways and means of achieving this goal and has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA).
The study is being carried out in accordance with the requirements of a Schedule B project as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Municipal Class EA document (October 2000, as amended in 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The EA process includes public and agency consultation, an evaluation of alternative solutions, an assessment of the potential environmental effects of the alternative solutions, selection of the preferred solution and identification of reasonable measures to mitigate any adverse impacts.
A key component of the study will involve consultation with interested stakeholders, the public and regulatory agencies. You are encouraged to provide your comments so that they may be incorporated into the plan and design of this project. Please contact either one of the following project representatives if you would like further information on the project, if you have any questions or comments, or if you would like to be added to the study mailing list.
