The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to advise the public of an upcoming Neighbourhood Meeting that has been scheduled regarding the Bay Street East Reconstruction project.
This meeting is being held to review the scope of work and gather initial community input. The intention of this meeting is to provide more insight into what is going to be happening with the underground works, and how that will impact conditions above ground. No final decisions will be made at the meeting, but the project team will be able to provide more information about the potential pros and cons of any alternative design elements.
What: Neighbourhood Meeting
When: Saturday, December 2, 2023 – 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Where: Bayview Park Pavilion
About the Project
The Town needs to install a secondary sanitary sewer forcemain from the Mill Street Pumping Station to the Thornbury Wastewater Treatment Plant to service growth in the west portion of the municipality. The secondary forcemain will follow Bay Street East between Mill Street and Grey Street, and then proceed south on Grey Street to the treatment plant. The Town’s Asset Management Plan indicates that the underground infrastructure on Bay Street is in poor to very poor condition and is approaching the end of its useful life. Considering that Bay Street will be significantly disturbed from Mill Street to Grey Street for the installation of the secondary forcemain, this provides a good opportunity to reconstruct the entire road to ensure that the watermain, sewers and stormwater systems are updated and adequate for the next 50-75 years.
