Burlington Beach Regional Waterfront Park Master Plan
The Regional Municipality of Halton, the City of Burlington and Conservation Halton have embarked on a process that will culminate in a new Master Plan for the Burlington Beach Regional Waterfront Park. Recent public consultation has taken place on November 29, 2011, February 1, 2012 and June 28, 2012. The Master Plan process consists of two phases:
Phase I: Comprehensive Background Report
Phase I focuses on the preparation of a background planning document and other supporting studies, which will inform decision-making prior to and during preparation of the Master Plan. This document will be reported to Council at the Community Services Committee on May 8, 2013. It provides a comprehensive review of the:
- planning and regulatory regime;
- human and natural history;
- natural environment (terrestrial biology, bathymetry, water levels, wave climate, dynamic beach, flooding, erosion);
- existing park amenities, services and facilities, recreational activities;
- transportation (roads, bike lanes, trails, transit);
- municipal services (water, wastewater, stormwater); and
- cultural, heritage and tourism considerations.
Phase II: Master Plan
Phase II will culminate in the preparation of the final Master Plan that will form the basis of a design and implementation strategy for the park.
