Sandwich South Master Servicing Plan
Notice of Study Commencement
To meet the future growth needs of the City of Windsor (City), 2,600 hectares of land in the former Township of Sandwich South were transferred from the Town of Tecumseh to the City of Windsor in 2002. Sandwich South, which is located on the south east side of the City of Windsor is primarily rural but includes the Windsor Airport and some residential homes. The City has designated this area for future growth over the next 20 years and will include a variety of residential, commercial, institutional and industrial land uses.
The City has initiated a Master Servicing Plan (Plan) for the Sandwich South Area to develop a coordinated and sustainable approach to providing municipal infrastructure in support of growth. The plan will consider the location and capacity of collector roads, storm and sanitary sewers, and how stormwater will be managed throughout the study area. The plan will build upon the completed Lauzon Parkway Environmental Assessment and the ongoing Upper Little River Stormwater Master Plan.
The plan is being prepared in coordination with a Floodplain Mapping Study for the Little River Watershed. The Flood Plain Mapping Study will identify areas that may be susceptible to flooding during large storm events and will guide the location of future development. It is anticipated both studies will be completed in 2021.
An important part of developing this plan is to seek feedback from local residents and other stakeholders on the long-term municipal infrastructure plans for this area. Do you have information on existing or future conditions the team should be aware of as it starts this planning process? Are there areas you know that flood during large rain events? Do you have questions about how the City plans for growth in areas like this? The study area is shown outlined in heavy black line on the key plan below. Join us Thursday, January 30, 2020 at Forest Glade Community Centre for your first opportunity to hear more about the study and provide your information on existing conditions in the area.
