The town is in the Red-Control level under the new provincial COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open. Provincial orders remain in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines.
The Town of Oakville is assessing shoreline protection needs at Shorewood Promenade and Holyrood Promenade (located off of Shorewood Place and Holyrood Avenue, respectively).
With no shoreline protection at Shorewood Promenade and on-going deterioration of shoreline protection at Holyrood Promenade, shoreline conditions have been made worse following consecutive years of high lake level conditions.
Please note that shoreline improvements at Shorewood Promenade will follow a Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, Schedule B, Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) process. Shoreline improvements at Holyrood Promenade will follow a Schedule A+, MCEA process.
A Public Information Centre (PIC) is being planned to discuss matters related to these projects, including alternatives solutions, evaluation criteria, environmental impacts and mitigation measures. A PIC date and details will be advertised as the study progresses.
Shoreline construction at both sites is tentatively planned in 2021.
