Message Number: 2020-03
Issued on: October 30, 2020
Issued by: John Bittorf, Water Resources Coordinator
TO: Watershed Municipalities and Watershed Media

MESSAGE:
A cold front associated with a low-pressure system is forecast to move across Lake Huron and Georgian Bay on Sunday (Nov. 1, 2020) and into Monday (Nov. 2, 2020) bringing with it high winds. Strong northwest winds are expected to develop late Sunday evening and are forecasted to peak overnight and into Monday morning. Maximum sustained wind speeds of 40-50 km per hour with gusts up to 80 km per hour are expected. Winds are forecast to diminish throughout the day Monday, but will remain steady out of the northwest before shifting westerly late in the day. The strong winds, combined with near record-high water levels on Lake Huron/Georgian Bay, will result in higher than normal waves hitting shoreline areas. This event may be similar to the wind/wave event experienced last Halloween (2019).


The increased wave height may result in minor flooding of low-lying shoreline areas, as well as increased risk of erosion. The areas most affected within the Grey Sauble Watershed will be the Southern portions of Georgian Bay. However, other areas including the Lake Huron shorelines should continue to monitor conditions.


This message will remain in effect until 12:00 pm on Monday November 2, 2020, unless local conditions warrant further updates. The Grey Sauble Conservation Authority (GSCA) will continue to monitor watershed conditions and will provide an update if required.

For alternative Halloween celebrations, residents and their families are recommended to:

  • Host a virtual costume party or celebration
  • Send a Halloween-themed letter or card to your loved ones
  • Arranged for contactless delivery of spooky crafts or tricks and treats
  • Call or video chat with family and friends instead of attending in-person gatherings

For a unique COVID-19 friendly Halloween twist, the Blue Mountains Public Library is hosting a drive-thru Halloween event on Saturday, October 31, 2020. This event will give every family a chance to trick-or-treat and will run from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information, please visit: https://www.thebluemountainslibrary.ca/.

If residents choose to practice trick-or-treating on Halloween, residents are urged to avoid large groups as well as busy subdivisions.

Notice of Public Meeting 

The purpose of this application is to consider a request to amend the detached accessory dwelling unit setback requirements of Zoning By-law 2018-65. The effect of the application is to recognize existing deficient building setbacks in order to permit the conversion of an existing detached accessory structure into an accessory apartment dwelling unit.

The amendment proposes to establish a site-specific exception to the property to recognize the current setbacks of the existing detached structure. The amendment would recognize an existing easterly interior side yard setback of 0.4m, whereas a minimum of 2.0m is required, and an existing front yard setback of 1.7m, whereas a minimum of 7.5m is required.

The lands are also subject to a concurrent Site Plan Application for the detached accessory dwelling unit and are legally described as Lot 8, Plan 389.

The By-law to Regulate and License Businesses in the Town of The Blue Mountains and the By-law to Establish a Comprehensive System of Administrative Monetary Penalties for the Town of The Blue Mountains are By-laws to replace the Town’s current regime of Licensing and Administrative Monetary Penalties. The By-law to Regulate and License Businesses in the Town of The Blue Mountains will permit the Town to License and regulate a range of businesses; however, Short-Term Accommodation Licenses will be subject of the initial By-law. The Administrative Monetary Penalty By-law will enable the Town to issue Administrative Monetary Penalties for infractions under other designated Town By-laws, initially, the Business Licensing By-law. This By-law represents an overhaul of the Town’s existing system and aims to make the Town’s infraction and penalty system for Business Licenses more robust, faster and simpler then pursuing charges under the Provincial Offences Act.

The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to notify the public that the jersey barriers on Bruce Street South will be removed this Friday, October 23, 2020.

It’s Fire Prevention Week, and the Town of The Blue Mountains Fire Department is urging everyone to take some simple steps to prevent kitchen fires in their home. This year’s theme of Fire Prevention Week is “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!™”

The theme is very timely as cooking fires continue to be the leading cause of home fires in Ontario. It focuses on the prevention of cooking fires and staying fire safe in the kitchen.

Simple steps to serve up fire safety in the kitchen include:

  • Always stay in the kitchen when cooking and turn off the stove if you must leave the kitchen.
  • Keep a proper fitting lid near the stove. If a pot of oil catches fire, slide the lid over the pot and turn off the stove. Do not move the pot. Never throw water on a burning pot.
  • Keep anything that burns - plastic utensils, dishcloths, paper towels - a safe distance from the stove.
  • Cook responsibly. To prevent cooking fires, you must be alert. You will not be alert if you have consumed alcohol or drugs.
  • Wear tight-fitting or rolled-up sleeves when using the stove. Loose, dangling clothing can easily catch fire.
  • Keep young kids one metre away from the stove. Turn pot handles away from the stove’s edge so they can’t be easily knocked off.
  • If you burn yourself while cooking, run cool water over the wound for three to five minutes. If the burn is severe, seek medical attention.

If you require further information, please contact The Blue Mountains Fire Department during normal business hours at 519- 599-5411 ext. 101 or visit: https://www.thebluemountains.ca/fire-prevention-week-2020.cfm?is=2

To improve and strengthen communication and public engagement, the Town of The Blue Mountains has launched a public survey to gain feedback from residents and stakeholders to help understand how the Town can continually improve and enhance positive community engagement.

To take the survey, please visit: https://yourview.thebluemountains.ca/communications-strategy-2020

The survey results will be reviewed by the Community Communications Advisory Committee and Town Staff and will be used to help create a comprehensive Communications Strategy for the Town of The Blue Mountains. The five-year Communications Strategy will serve as a strategic document to guide communication efforts between the Town and residents.

To complete the survey online, please visit the following link and sign in or register to create an account: http://yourview.thebluemountains.ca. Paper copies of the survey will be available at Town Hall and at The Blue Mountains Public Library Branch. The deadline to complete the survey is Sunday, October 25, 2020.

“We can’t get enough Community input into the planning process,” said John Milne, Chair of the Community Communications Advisory Committee. “We will be working with Council and staff to ensure that the Communications Strategy incorporates the input we receive from this survey and the thinking of the residents. The Community Communications Advisory Committee invites you to participate in the survey and please encourage your friends and neighbours to do so as well.”

The public survey for the Leisure Activities Plan has been extended by two additional weeks and is now scheduled to close on Friday, October 16, 2020.

The extension allows additional time for residents and stakeholders to submit comments regarding the development of the Leisure Activities Plan for the Town.

“With over 600 survey responses received to date, this additional two-week timeframe will allow a final opportunity for residents to submit their comments and feedback,” explained Councillor Peter Bordignon. “The creation of a Leisure Activities Plan is important to ensure proper planning for recreational, cultural, indoor and outdoor activities along with Community Hub infrastructure investments and to also ensure that the entire community has access to varied recreational opportunities.”

The goal of the Leisure Activities Plan is to anticipate and plan for the growing and changing recreational activity needs and desires within the community. When complete, the updated Leisure Activities Plan (LAP) will identify and prioritize community wants and desires and recommend a sound and realistic course of action to deliver recreation facilities, programs, and services to our residents. The study will identify opportunities for recreation and culture and will outline the process to examine the need for a multi-use recreation facility and consider what other Community Hub type infrastructure should be considered in the future short term to long term.

To complete the survey online, please visit the following link and sign in or register to create an account: http://yourview.thebluemountains.ca/leisure-activities-plan. Paper copies of the survey are also available at Town Hall and at The Blue Mountains Public Library Branch.

The video message linked below was provided by Mayor Alar Soever as an update related to COVID-19.

Direct video link: https://youtu.be/CpSE5SEymeY

The following press release has been issued jointly between the Town of The Blue Mountains the Grey Bruce Public Health Unit.

Yesterday the Grey Bruce Health Unit announced it has identified a cluster of COVID-19 cases in our area resulting from some of these individuals failing to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines. https://www.publichealthgreybruce.on.ca/About-Us/News-Releases/ArticleID/664/COVID-19-Community-Clusters

“In this case, we are confident we have reached the close contacts of this cluster and we're managing them and it's not beyond our capacity. So, there is no need to post a business or post the name or location.” said Dr. Ian Arra, Grey Bruce Medical Officer of Health. “While the outbreak is in several communities, the one thing in common is that people lowered their guards. It is mainly related to people over-extending social gatherings and having too many contacts.”

“With the increase in cases throughout Ontario, it is not surprising that we have a few cases pop-up in our Town”, stated Mayor Alar Soever. “What is disturbing is the fact that the Grey Bruce Health Unit contact tracing had to follow up with approximately 100 contacts, including 32 known high-risk close contacts, within this one cluster. I have also received reports of people having dinner parties and other gatherings in contravention of provincial orders and the guideline to maintain a social bubble of no more than 10 people.”

“I am disappointed that the small number of residents who are contravening Provincial Orders and Public Health Guidelines are putting our community at risk.  They are being completely irresponsible and showing complete disregard for the health of their family, friends, and neighbours, as well as a lack of respect for our community. As they seem incapable of understanding the potential consequences of their actions, I will spell it out clearly for them.”

  • If we have people like you, who continue to ignore provincial orders and guidelines, it will only be a matter of time before COVID-19 takes hold in our community, businesses have to close, and people get sick and die.
  • As you appear to be selfish and not care about the health of your family, friends, and neighbours, and your community, I ask you to consider the impact on yourself.
  • We are a small tight-knit community and your family, friends, neighbours, and other community members will know that it is you that behaved irresponsibly.
  • Even if you don’t get sick and die, consider how you will be looked upon for the rest of your life when it is your actions that lead to the spread of COVID in our community, and the death of a family member, friend, neighbour, or community member.

“To the vast majority of our residents who are doing their best to keep our community safe, I want to thank you for your dedication and sacrifice. Working together and supporting one another, we can get through this safely.”

Public Health reminds everyone that to break the spread of COVID-19, it is important to continue to follow current public health guidance, including:

  • Maintaining your social bubble
  • Watching  your distance and maintain physical distancing of 2 metres between yourself and others
  • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water, or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Wearing face coverings correctly in indoor public spaces

This Project will consider opportunities for the Town to administer grants or loans to encourage private sector investment in attainable housing. It will also consider opportunities to update the existing Commercial Core Community Improvement Plan in light of recent economic challenges due to the Pandemic.

To complete the survey online, please visit the following link and sign in or register to create an account: http://yourview.thebluemountains.ca. Paper copies of the survey will be available at Town Hall and at The Blue Mountains Public Library Branch. The deadline to complete the survey is Thursday, October 22, 2020.
