Fenelon Falls Second Crossing Project Team To Make Presentation To Council Next Week

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Fenelon Falls Second Crossing Project team with Dillon Consulting will be making a presentation to Council at the Committee of the Whole meeting on Tuesday November 2, 2021. The purpose of the meeting is to provide an overview of the study report, which documents the work and consultation completed to date, including recommendations.

Presentation materials, as well as the study report, can be viewed on the published agenda for November 2. The Committee of the Whole meeting begins at 10am and will be live-streamed on YouTube.

In 2019, the municipality, through its consultant Dillon Consulting Limited, began undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to determine whether there is need for a second bridge crossing in Fenelon Falls. The project involves an assessment of the current issues in Fenelon Falls, the identification of alternative solutions to the issue, technical studies including transportation, structural, socio-economic and environmental studies, and public, stakeholder, agency and Indigenous community consultation.

There have been three public meetings held to date, as well as a dedicated project page on the municipality’s engagement platform, JumpIn, where residents can find recordings of past meetings and a “frequently asked questions” report containing 50 responses from the project team.
