Share your vision for the future of Willow Beach, De La Salle, Jackson's Point Harbour and Holmes Point.

Recently, Georgina council was provided with a glimpse of what the waterfront could be, from pedestrian promenades and water’s edge decks to parking and diverting traffic along Lake Drive.

During the initial stage, the town received plenty of feedback and is reaching out again to hear what residents think of the concept plans as part of the first phase of the waterfront parks master plan.

The master plan -- three phases to be completed over three years -- will provide information on town-owned assets such as wharves, beaches, parks and road ends.

There are several ways to participate:

In-person public consultations:

• Aug. 21, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Willow Beach;

• Aug. 21, 2 to 4 p.m. at De La Salle;

• Aug. 28, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Jackson’s Point Harbour;

• Aug. 28, 2 to 4 p.m. at Holmes Point; and

• Sept. 1, 5:30 to 8 p.m. at De La Salle.

Virtual public consultations:

• Sept. 8, 2 to 4 p.m. and 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Both online sessions will cover all of the parks and concept plans.

Residents are encouraged to participate in the town’s online survey, looking at how waterfront parks and spaces are used. Along with usage, the town also wants to learn more of how residents want the waterfront to look and feel.
