Notice of Study Commencement Gairloch Gardens and Vista Promenade Shoreline Improvements

Thu, 04 Apr 2019

The study

The Town of Oakville has initiated a study to assess shoreline protection needs at two lakefront parks; Gairloch Gardens and Vista Promenade. Current shoreline protection at both sites have seen deterioration over the years and have been made worse following the high lake level conditions in 2017.

Shoreline construction at Gairloch Gardens is tentatively planned for summer/fall 2019.  Construction at Vista Promenade is tentatively planned for summer 2020

A Public Information Centre (PIC) is being planned to discuss issues related to these projects, including alternative solutions, evaluation criteria, environmental impacts and mitigation measures. A PIC date and details will be advertised as the study progresses.
