Community Engagement Session #1: Cayuga public parks enhancements – June 20

Haldimand County is seeking community input to enhance public parks in Cayuga. Public meetings have been scheduled for June 20 (2pm – 4pm & 7pm – 9pm) at the Cayuga Arena (McSorley Hall) to collect resident ideas and establish a community-driven vision for the Cayuga parks system with a focus on the Village Green, Cayuga Library parkette, Bob Baigent Park and the Cayuga Administration Building/museum property.

Landscape architecture and planning firm Stempski Kelly Associates Inc. have been contracted to facilitate the community engagement process and develop designs for the four public parks. Initial meetings in June will focus on identifying the types of parks-related amenities desired by residents and where they could be located. Community engagement meetings will be highly visual with design exercises that result in a ‘real-time’ capturing of resident ideas.

Following the initial meeting, Stempski Kelly Associates Inc. will prepare draft concepts and present them for resident review and input. Concept review meetings dates will be announced in late summer 2019.

Notice of Commencement: LPRCA Flood Hazard Mapping & Risk Assessment

The Project

The Long Point Region Conservation Authority (LRPCA) is updating and creating new flood hazard mapping for approximately 91 kilometres of watercourses within its jurisdiction. The LRPCA is focusing this work on the most flood vulnerable communities within its watershed, with financial support from the National Disaster Mitigation Program. Accurate floodplain mapping is critical to minimizing the risk to life and property, supporting flood emergency response, planning for long-term mitigation measures, and supporting land use and development planning.

This Project will provide updated flood hazard mapping for the subject areas, as well as a risk assessment for the flood hazard mapping areas, at-risk structures and infrastructure, and associated flood damage potential.

Community Engagement

Engagement with the public is a critical component of this Project and will include two sessions of Public Information Centres (PICs). Each session will occur at three locations within the study area in collaboration with the local municipalities. The first session will provide the public with the opportunity to review the preliminary flood hazard mapping and provide insight into local conditions and flooding history. The second session will present the updated flood hazard mapping and associated risk assessment.
