Innisfil Beach Park Master Plan Vision - Implementation

On June 24, 2020 Council approved the Innisfil Beach Park Master Plan Vision (IBPMP 2020).

Prior to implementing the recommended upgrades to the park as identified in the Master Plan, the Town has initiated the current Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) process and associated studies necessary to address the requirements of the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act so as to move forward with the infrastructure improvements to make the park future ready and to accommodate the increased traffic to and within the park.

Key challenges to be addressed include the following:

  • Conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles within and surrounding the Park and vehicle congestion at Innisfil Beach Road and 25th Sideroad at peak summer days and events
  • Inadequate water, sanitary, power to allow for future park amenities
  • Multiple bridge/culvert structures in Innisfil Beach Park requiring repair or replacement identified in the Ontario Structure Inspection Manual (OSIM) Inspections
  • Trails and existing roadways within the park require repairs
  • The need for additional trail connections for pedestrians and cyclists to easily navigate through the park reducing vehicular conflict

The Process

This undertaking will be completed in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Oct. 2000, as amended 2007, 2011 & 2015) Schedule ‘B’ planning process and will involve a review of alternative site plan solutions to implement the recommended infrastructure improvements. While this study is being initiated as a Schedule ‘B’ project the MCEA classification may be revisited as the project progresses.

Public Information Centre (PIC)

A Public Information Centre (PIC) has been scheduled as part of Phase 2 of the MCEA Schedule ‘B’ process to introduce the project and to allow all interested parties an opportunity to review the alternative site plan solutions developed to address the challenges, constraints and opportunities affecting the subject Park.

The PIC will be presented in an online format with material available starting September 28, 2022 on this project page.

Comments Invited

Public input is encouraged throughout this process and will be given consideration during the planning and design of this project. The deadline for the submission of comments following the PIC will be October 12, 2022. Information will be collected in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record.
