Scarborough Waterfront Project Update
A Public Information Centre (PIC) meeting was held on February 24th to gather input for the Environmental Assessment covering the creation of a system of greenspaces along the Lake Ontario shoreline along an 11km stretch from the mouth of Highland Creek to Bluffer’s Park. The Scarborough Waterfront Project vision is to “create a system of greenspaces along the Lake Ontario shoreline which respect and protect the significant natural and cultural features of the Bluffs, enhance the terrestrial and aquatic habitat, and provide a safe and enjoyable waterfront experience.”
The PIC was well attended and Gary Crawford and Paul Ainslie were in attendance. Participants were able to provide input for incorporation into the draft Terms of Reference, which will be available for a 30-day review in late March. The Terms of Reference will form the roadmap for the planning and decision-making process that the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) will follow for the Environmental Assessment (EA). It will also outline the consultation plan and schedule. CCRA will continue to provide updates in the newsletter and attend PIC meetings.
