The Premier of Ontario has declared a province-wide state of emergency and issued a stay-at-home order in response to rising COVID-19 variant infection rates.
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.
Shoreline construction at both sites is tentatively planned in 2021.
Town staff are seeking public input related to these projects, including alternative solutions, evaluation criteria, environmental impacts and mitigation measures.
The following material, including background information on shoreline conditions and the deterioration of the current shoreline protection, updates from investigations, evaluation of alternatives for improvements and the preliminary preferred alternatives for each site, is now available for review
Please direct all comments, concerns and input on the projects to the following contacts via e-mail, mail or phone call by January 7, 2021.
