Your input is important!

We appreciate your feedback and we encourage you to get involved. A key component of the study is consultation with stakeholders, the public, land owners and regulatory agencies. This notice is to invite you to an open house (Public Information Centre) on November 26, 2014. Representatives of the Town of Oakville, and its consultant, will be available to discuss the study, answer questions and receive feedback from you. This is an informal drop-in opportunity to review the study background information, solutions being assessed, and provide your input.

Background

The Town of Oakville has initiated this Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to assess creek erosion and stability of West Morrison Creek from Upper Middle Road to McCraney Street. The study is intended to characterize the existing site, determine the causes of erosion and develop comprehensive alternative solutions for the stabilization and rehabilitation of the creek channel and banks along Morrison Creek.

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 (2013), 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.

If you are attending the open house and have any accessibility needs, please let us know as soon as possible by contacting one of the project representatives or by filling out the accessible online feedback form.
