Sandpoint Beach Park Master Plan and Environmental Assessment
The City of Windsor is carrying out a study of Sandpoint Beach Park for the purpose of establishing a park master plan and potentially modifying the existing shoreline to improve public safety. This study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements for phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. The study area includes Sandpoint Beach, Ganatchio Park, and Stop 26 Park, which are all commonly referred to as Sandpoint Beach Park.
The study has progressed to the point where preliminary site layouts have been developed and public feedback has been gathered. This Notice of Intent explains the process and contains contact information regarding the request for public comment.
A public information centre was held on May 19, 2022, to present the preliminary design and initiate the public consultation process. The information boards were available following the meeting, and residents were asked to complete a short survey by June 2, 2022. All feedback will be taken into consideration in the final report.
The master plan for these parks will be completed this summer followed by an environmental assesment for the beach location to be completed later this fall with public consultation on the preferred design.
Under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act, unless otherwise stated in submission, with the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record and will be released, if requested, to any person.
Here is the functional design that was presented at the May 19 meeting.
