Marina Action Plan Project in Ward 1

I would like to provide information on the Marina Action Plan project in Ward 1.

Council approved the Inspiration Port Credit Master Plan in 2016 which recommends that a vibrant mixed use waterfront neighbourhood and destination with a full service marina be developed at the 1 Port Street East site. Subsequently, Council authorized staff, through Resolution 0193-2017, to move forward with the Marina Action Plan for 1 Port Street East. A consulting team led by Shoreplan Engineering Limited was retained in June 2019 to complete an Environmental Assessment (EA) and pre-design studies. The City hosted the first Public Information Centre about the 1 Port Street East Proposed Marina Project on July 18, 2019.

A detailed project update was provided to you on through a General Committee presentation on October 30, 2019.

Next steps for the project include a Public Information Centre #2 on January 29th at the Port Credit Legion with an open house at 4:00 pm and a presentation at 6:30 pm– please save the date. The purpose of this Public Information Centre is to present the draft Terms of Reference, which sets out the City’s work plan for addressing the Environmental Assessment Act requirements in the Individual EA, builds upon all of the background work completed to date, includes the extent of lakefill to be considered in the EA, and the public consultation activities. More detailed alternatives will be shown at future PICs. This will be an opportunity for the local and boating community to understand the project and to discuss the Terms of Reference with the project team. The community will be engaged throughout the process and will be given opportunities to provide input.

If you have any questions pertaining to this project please feel free to reach out to myself………………
