Warminster Sideroad Drainage Improvements Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Notice of Public Information Centre

The Township of Oro-Medonte has initiated an environmental assessment following Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process to establish the preferred method to address drainage deficiencies, reduce flooding, resolve public safety concerns, and improve maintenance opportunities along Warminster Sideroad from 1920 Warminster Sideroad to Town Line. A Public Information Center (PIC) is planned to advise the public of the drainage deficiencies identified through the initial stages of the project, gather comments on any additional deficiencies and elicit comment on the alternative solutions and the preliminary preferred solution that are being considered.

The study area is the section of the Warminster Sideroad municipal right of way between 1920 Warminster Sideroad and Town Line, including the Danny McHugh Memorial Park (municipal Address 1885 Warminster Sideroad), and part of 1926 Warminster Sideroad and 3320 Town Line. The existing drainage infrastructure in the study area consists of a combination of open roadside ditches, driveway culverts, and road crossing culverts.

The Drainage Improvements Assessment is being completed in accordance with the Schedule ‘B’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (October 2000, amended in 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2023). The Township has retained the consulting firm Tatham Engineering Limited to complete this Drainage Improvements Assessment.

The Township hereby notifies all interested individuals and parties that a Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held on January 11, 2024 at 6:00pm at the Township Administration Building. The format will consist of a presentation followed by an open discussion period. Comment sheets will be provided to allow members of the public and interested stakeholders to comment on any specific drainage concerns, indicate preferences regarding the improvement options being considered and provide overall comments regarding satisfaction with the presentation. Township staff and representatives from Tatham Engineering Limited will be available at this meeting to discuss issues and concerns with members of the public. Comments collected through this process will be used to finalize the preferred drainage solution through the evaluation.
