Bobcaygeon Beach Park Redevelopment

Bobcaygeon Beach Park Redevelopment – Conceptual Design

We are excited to initiate this project and recognize the importance of Bobcaygeon Beach Park redesign to the community. Landscape Planning Limited is leading the design project. The conceptual design includes innovative approaches and progressive technologies that are sustainable and operationally feasible. All design elements will meet or exceed Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation Guidelines and Design of Public Spaces Standards.

The design has a focus on water recreation and will facilitate use by various water craft user groups including activities such as rowing, kayaking, canoeing and motorized water craft. The design incorporates outdoor pavilions, docking to provide access to the Big Bob Channel, washroom facilities to service all park users, playground structures, water view walking paths and shoreline improvements with a focus on connection to all park features. The overall design fosters a water play focus.

Public input is a key component to the design development. The first Public Open House took place on Thursday, June 21, 2018. The meeting was an opportunity for community members to share thoughts, concerns and ideas directly with the project team.

Bobcaygeon Beach Park Redevelopment Final Public Open House

The Final Public Open House for the Bobcaygeon Beach Park Redevelopment took place on Thursday, December 6, 2018 at the Bobcaygeon Service Centre. Approximately 80 individuals attended this meeting. The purpose of this meeting was to share the revised concept design with the public. The initial conceptual design has been revised based on public feedback and comments received at the June 21, 2018 Public Open House and online survey. The revised design was presented during this meeting.

The design continues to have a focus on water recreation and community use by incorporating outdoor gathering spaces, multi-use pathways, playground structures, riparian shoreline improvements and boat docking. Landscape Planning Limited is leading the design project.

The current conceptual design and report will be presented to Council. A project funding request has been included in the 2019 Capital Budget Program, and if approved, an RFP will be prepared in order to award the provision of the final design development and construction management services. It is anticipated that on-site work will begin in the Fall of 2019.

If you require this map in an alternate format please call 705-324-9411 extension 1193 or E-Mail Engineering and Corporate Assets.

Construction schedule and work hours

The construction schedule for this work is approximately 15 months starting from September 2017 until November 2018.  Regular work hours will be consistent with the City's noise by-law, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday.   When required, some work may take place outside these normal working hours but this will only be permitted at the discretion of the City and will only be done if absolutely necessary.

How you may be affected

During construction, Colborne Street West (east of William Street North) in the immediate construction area will be closed to through traffic periodically.  However, uninterrupted access to local traffic to Carew Apartments south parking lot and to the rear of 140 William Street North building will be provided for the duration of the construction. 

The current Lindsay Transit bus route from William Street North through Colborne Street West to Carew Apartments will temporarily be redirected via Pottinger Street.  Further details of temporary bus routes and schedules will be provided by the City's Public Works Department (Fleet Services).   

The walking trail through the existing pumping station site (on the west side of the Scugog River) will be rerouted outside of the construction zone with appropriate signage of Trail Closures/Detours. 

The south parking lot for Rivera Park and the park area (south of the Sinister Creek on the east side of the Scugog River) will be closed for the duration of construction.  

A major construction activity will be underground rock breaking (no blasting) and removal.  The neighbouring residents may experience some noise and possibility of vibration during rock breaking.

The existing wastewater collection systems will remain in operation during construction and commissioning of the new or modified works and all temporary sewage diversions (bypass) will take place with minimum disruption to the operation of the systems.

Logie Street Park Redevelopment

Site preparation work is currently underway for the redevelopment of Logie Street Park, located in Lindsay.  The Park is currently closed and will remain closed until the Park redevelopment is complete.

In December 2017 a significant number of the existing Lilac shrubs were dug and transported to a local nursery where the shrubs will be cared for during the initial construction phase, the Lilac shrubs will be will replanted at the Park during the final phases of construction in 2019.  Any remaining Lilac shrubs that were not transported off site will be relocated within the Park in April 2018.

June 2019 - Construction Update

As of June, the Contractor has re-mobilized to site. Work completed to date includes, striping of top soil and stock piled for future use.

The project has experienced delays due to excessive amounts of rain causing saturated site conditions.

Next steps will include bringing in engineered fill for building, as well as starting site grading and servicing.

January 2019 – Construction Update

The Contractor is scheduled to remobilize in February to remove surplus topsoil off site.  Site conditions require frost to allow trucks to access freely.

Importation of engineered fill will follow topsoil removals in isolated areas to allow for work to commence in early Spring 2019.

November 2018 - Construction Update

Operations Underway  Logie Street Park

The Logie Street Park Construction project has gone through a competitive procurement process and has been awarded to a local contractor, Carchidi Excavating.  The contractor mobilized to site the week of October 29, 2018 and began operations.

 

The scheduled activities for this Fall are outlined blow, all works are weather dependent and inclement weather could delay operations:

  • Install site security fence around perimeter of site
  • Install silt fence around perimeter of site (to assure silt and debris remains on site/no silt enters the nearby waterway)
  • Topsoil striping and initial site grading
  • Underground infrastructure - Street Connections
    • Connecting services at the street and installing to site property line
      • Sanitary Sewer
      • Water Service
      • Storm Sewer
  • Underground infrastructure - On site (weather dependent)
    • Connecting at the site property line and completing all site infrastructure and connection to buildings
      • Sanitary Sewer
      • Water Service
      • Storm Sewer
  •  Complete Building Footings - (weather dependent)

The contractor intends to work on site until inclement weather dictates a stoppage for the construction season.   

 

The objective is to start operations again in early Spring 2019.  The project experienced delays in its initial start date as a result of procurement, permit and design challenges.  Completion date for the project is scheduled for Spring 2020. Regular construction updates will be provided over the duration of the project.

City-wide

Development Charges Study

Kawartha Lakes is undertaking the process to replace By-Law 2015-224 (A By-Law to Impose Development Charges in the City of Kawartha Lakes). The proposed development charges by-law and its underlying study are available below for public review. 


There will also be a public meeting held on November 5 2019. The public meeting will include presentations by staff, the Development Charges Task Force and Watson and Associates.

Regarding the development charges background study and proposed development charges by-law, any person may provide a written submission to Council in advance of the public meeting, and or make an oral representation to Council during the public meeting. In order to be included on the agenda for the public meeting, written submissions must be received by the City Clerk’s Office no later than 4:00pm on November 1, 2019. The new development charges by-law is targeted for enactment on December 10, 2019 and for coming into force on January 1, 2020.

Rural Zoning By-Law

Kawartha Lakes has been using the original 18 Zoning By-laws since amalgamation in 2001 to address land development within the municipality as a whole. While the original By-laws have still continued to meet development needs, the outdated standards and regulations between areas has promoted the decision to create one new comprehensive Zoning By-law for the municipality. This project will take place in two phases: the first will address the 13 Rural Zoning By-laws and the second phase will review the five Urban Zoning By-laws.

The Task Force is scheduled to meet over the course of preparing the draft Rural Zoning By-Law for Council consideration. All meetings will be open to Council, staff and the public. Funding in the amount of $100,000 has been allocated for the Rural Zoning By-law in the City’s 2019 Budget. It is anticipated that this will be a two year project.

Strategic Plan 2020-2023

The City of Kawartha Lakes Strategic Plan is the guiding document used by Council and staff as we provide services and programs to our community. The current Strategic Plan is on target to have 97% of action items completed by the end of 2019.

Council began developing the new 2020-2023 Strategic Plan with Kawartha Lakes’ senior staff in May 2019. Follow along with the process on the Strategic Plan page.

Strategic Community Improvement Plan (CIP)

The City's Strategic Community Improvement Plan (CIP) has passed the appeal phase!

A Public Meeting was held on June 4, 2018 to receive feedback on the Draft CIP. Feedback was received from many groups including the Fenelon Falls Downtown Revitalization Working Group, Municipal Heritage Committee, Peterborough and The Kawarthas Home Builders Association, Community Futures Development Corporation, the Lindsay Downtown BIA, Fenelon Forward, Service Groups, City business owners and developers, Health Unit and other community partners. Staff returned to the Planning Advisory Committee on August 1st with a revised CIP. On August 14, 2018, Council adopted the CIP. The Council decision was followed by a statutory 20-day appeal period that concluded on September 12th, 2018 with no appeals.

The CIP establishes financial incentive programs to encourage repairs and improvements to commercial and mixed-use properties, restoration of heritage buildings, creation of or retrofits to affordable rental housing in mixed-use buildings, and downtown main street revitalization and enhancements. Improvements made through the CIP will benefit all residents and visitors of Kawartha Lakes by creating more vibrant and accessible downtown and main street areas.

Property and business owners across Kawartha Lakes are eligible for the CIP program. While the CIP Project Area By-law applies City-wide, some additional financial incentives are available for property and business owners in the downtown areas that participated in the Downtown Revitalization programs.

If you are a commercial or mixed-use building owner, business owner, or the owner of a designated residential property within Kawartha Lakes, you may be eligible for the loans and grants available through the CIP. These financial programs can help improve building functionality and general aesthetics, contributing to an improved experience for customers.

The first round of application intake is scheduled to commence fall 2018 with the first round of successful projects announced in Winter 2019. Additional information regarding the application process will be posted closer to the intake date.
