DAN CEARNS The Standard
SCUGOG: The Township of Scugog is looking for the community to get involved with the Port Perry Waterfront Action Plan process. Next month, on Thursday, February 13th, there will be three workshop sessions held in Township council chambers. Each session is described as a “collaborative session to design and draft options and solutions” by township officials and is open to 40 people. “We want the community to take ownership along with us for the Port Perry Waterfront Action Plan,” read a statement from Scugog Mayor Bobbie Drew. “We want people to engage through the #MyWaterfront campaign and feel that they are a part of the decision-making process.” In November, the Township conducted one-on-one interviews with community members and held an introductory workshop. “The Action Plan will make recommendations for short, medium and long-term actions for recreation, natural and cultural heritage features, economic development and tourism on the waterfront; to ensure that Port Perry continues to be a vibrant and thriving community for residents and visitors. The study lands are identified as the lands from north of the Scugog Memorial Public Library, along the park area and stretches to the lands on the north side of Highway 7A between Water Street and the Causeway,” explained a recent Scugog press release. For more information, and to register for one of the workshop sessions, go online to www.scugog.ca/mywaterfront or contact Scugog Manager of Planning Robin Prentice at 905-985-7347 extension 100.
