I have a sump pump that currently discharges to the ditch – what will happen to it?

    Sump pumps will be connected to the proposed storm sewer system.

    When will the construction happen?

    Preliminary works are underway. Construction is expected to take approximately 4 months. 

    Although the road will need to be closed to through traffic during the majority of construction, emergency access will be maintained. Homeowners will be able to get to their homes although driveway access may be limited on occasions. 

    Will my taxes go up, who’s paying for this?

    No. This project is funded from Federal Gas Tax funding provided by the Federal Government and contributions from the Developer, Oxnard Homes. Sanitary Sewer and Watermain costs are funded by the Region of Durham.

    Who’s responsibility is it to remove snow from the sidewalk?

    It is the property owner’s responsibility for removing snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their properties. 

    Will my driveway be paved?

    Driveways will be regraded up to the area shown in the design with material to suit the existing driveway.

    Will the speed limit change?

    The existing speed limit has been reduced to 40km/hr.

    Will the trees be removed?

    Impacts to vegetation will be minimized as much as possible, however some tree trimming may be required to ensure unobstructed use of the sidewalk.

    Trees fronting the development were removed as part of the development.
