Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority: Proposed Shoreline Management Plan — Public Information Open Houses

These meetings follow the decision by ABCA last November to revise the previously proposed draft plan and in doing so to seek greater public input.  Updates to the Shoreline Management Plan will provide a consistent and up-to-date guide for development and municipal land use planning along the shoreline.

People interested in shoreline management are invited to attend public information open houses.

  • Open Houses from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. noon
  • Presentations begin at 10:30 a.m.
  • June 3, 2017 at Zurich Arena, 15 East Street, Zurich
  • June 17, 2017 at Legacy Recreation Centre Hall, 16 Allen Street, Thedford

Topics include progress of technical studies, existing policies, coastal processes, shoreline recession, shoreline protection, and climate change impacts on the Great Lakes.

In keeping with the Shoreline Management Plan, OPAi encourages lakefront owners to not disturb the dunes on their property and beyond without consulting the ABCA.
