Land & Lake Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We're updating our Parks & Recreation Plan (Land Plan) and finishing the Lake Simcoe Enjoyment Strategy (Lake Plan). What does this mean for you? Well, Innisfil's parks, waterfront, and recreation programs are only going to get more awesome!

We'll be gathering feedback from residents to create a vision for our future, which will also set goals and objectives for:

  • New parks within neighbourhoods
  • Improvements to current parks
  • Better lake access
  • Enhancements to activities within our parks
  • Recreation services

Specifically, the plan will define needs and identify what we should be providing, where it should be located, when they'll be needed, and how they should be funded. In the meantime, it's time to get excited!

Have your say

Stay tuned for a survey coming soon... and better yet - share the survey with your friends, family and neighbours too. We want to get as many perspectives as possible to help shape these important decisions.

Stay in the Know

We encourage you to click the SUBSCRIBE BUTTON on this page to receive project updates. When new work happens and opportunities to leave feedback become available- you'll be the first to know!

A Public Open House will be held on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 from 7:00 to 8:00pm. Residents can join the session virtually by zoom. A public survey will be launched the same day!

    Objective

    The Lake Plan will seek to understand the different ways that residents interact with the Lake, as well as the wants and needs of the community in order to facilitate those interactions. It will then undertake feasibility studies for implementation and improvements that allow residents and visitors to access the rich experiences that Lake Simcoe has to offer, all while being environmentally sustainable. The strategy will also consider the impacts of a Lake strategy on in-land elements of tourism, transportation, parking, and other considerations.

    The purpose of the Lake Plan is to:

    1. Understand and illustrate the community's wants and needs for access and connection to the Lake including differences based on the make-up and sometimes unique identities of the various settlement areas. Identify the challenges posed and how they may be managed.
    2. Guide lake access parks and road ends planning/design and land decisions (including acquisition and disposition and distinguishing features that should be added or removed (e.g. which access points should support or promote lake access for motorized boats and which should be fully disabled for this use) ;
    3. Review possibility of Town operated port/docks/moorings; provide recommended locations, estimates, phased implementations, and preliminary site diagrams.
    4. Create a plan to for sustained economic benefits of being a lakeside community;
    5. Create a plan to encourage and facilitate additional recreational opportunities including boating, kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming etc.;
    6. Create a plan to attract business opportunities (as desired by the community) near Lake access parks and road ends;
    7. Guide for programming recommendations for lake access parks and road ends;
    8. Identify key park elements which contribute to year- round enjoyment and greater continuity;
    9. Inform budgetary decisions; implementation timelines
