Servicing and Stormwater – Assessment: <ul><li>Little existing servicing infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>Majority of servicing infrastructure privately owned and opperated </li></ul><ul><li>Private servicing not of suitable capacity and location for future developments. </li></ul>
Servicing and Stormwater – Resolution: <ul><li>Internal private networks replaced by public networks in municipal right-of-ways. </li></ul><ul><li>New public systems </li></ul><ul><li>External networks improved to support future development </li></ul>
Wet Weather Flow Master Plan Goals: <ul><li>Water Balance – erosion control, groundwater recharge, downstream habitat protection </li></ul><ul><li>Water Quality – for protection of water resources </li></ul><ul><li>Water Quantity – peak flow control, flood management, runoff control </li></ul>
Servicing and Stormwater System Cost Analysis Item Cost Water System $5,110,000 Wastewater System $10,630,000 Stormwater Trunk Sewer $5,160,000 Total $20,900,000
Servicing and Stormwater - Strengths RESIDENTS *Improved water and sewer services *Plan forward thinking -future needs EMPLOYMENT *Existing and future business located in the north- east side will benefit. *Networks maintained by the city. DEVELOPERS *Upgrade done before development, no disruption after project constructed. Less future cost.
Servicing and Stormwater - Weaknesses RESIDENTS *Traffic jams. *Unpleasant streetscape. *Possible difficulty in mobility for people with disabilities. EMPLOYMENT *businesses may suffer losses during construction. *Loss of control. DEVELOPERS *construction has to be held off until new infrastructure in place.
Servicing and Stormwater - Opportunities RESIDENTS *greater variety of water usage ex. swimming pools, community farming, green houses etc. EMPLOYMENT *improved value of business. *greater business variety. DEVELOPERS *possibility to develop new areas = profit
Servicing and Stormwater – Threats RESIDENTS * new infrastructure, may result in higher taxes. EMPLOYMENT * new environmental/ sustainable regulations - higher operating costs? *new taxes/charges. *new business = more competition DEVELOPERS *higher land development charges. *complications political / bureaucratic reasons.
Servicing and Stormwater – Conclusion The plan provides for the develpoment of public water, sanitary and stormwater sewer systems in order to support further growth and development within the plan.
Plan Objective – Heritage and Archaeology <ul><li>Heritage Building Conservation Study </li></ul><ul><li>- Aviation and Military History </li></ul><ul><li>Plan Identifies Cultural and Natural features </li></ul><ul><li>Consultation and Communication with the Federal Heritage Building Review Office </li></ul>
Heritage and Archaeology – Strengths RESIDENTS *Benefits from cultural and natural heritage, open space, beautification. *Healthier lifestyle. EMPLOYMENT *Sustainable work environment . DEVELOPERS *Design in natural setting = beautification without spending $$$. *Marketing potential
Heritage and Archaeology - Weaknesses RESIDENTS *Tax $$$ used somewhere else. *William Baker neighbourhood not recognized. *Natural heritage = small area & recreated. *Participation? EMPLOYMENT *May constrict allowable uses DEVELOPERS *Heritage buildings not attractive. *Constricts development. *Archeological assessment $$$.
Heritage and Archaeology – Opportunity RESIDENTS *Reuse and readapt. *Involved in preservation of heritage EMPLOYMENT *Historical businesses: museums, galleries *Film industry DEVELOPERS *Market sustainable design and heritage preservation. *Redevelop heritage buildings.
Conclusion– Heritage and Archaeology <ul><li>Plan identifies Heritage sites </li></ul><ul><li>It may provide costly and inefficient to maintain some of the buildings </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Heritage protected but small area. </li></ul><ul><li>Communication and Cooperation with the FHBRO may prove difficult </li></ul>
