    When can we expect park improvements and new park construction to begin. Great family town but the few parks that exist are embarrassing.

    BT asked 26 days ago

    The Township began a plan to replace one playground each year starting in 2018.  To date we have replaced the playgrounds in Apple Valley Park, Poplar Park and Perry Glen Park. The 2021 Capital Budget includes replacing a portion of the playground in Palmer Park.  As well, new parks are planned on Sherrington Drive and Ash Street in 2022 and a third new park in the Delpark Subdivision in 2024.

    There are many in-town roads outside of the tourist areas that are well past their effective lifespan. When will these be addressed and what will the criteria be for prioritizing them?

    Newbuellertoo asked about 1 month ago

    All roads are reviewed as part of the State of the Infrastructure Study completed every four years.  The roads that are selected for work in the current year are based on the study’s recommendations and issues that may have been identified by staff since the study was completed.  Criteria for selection will include the type of road; the condition rating assigned to the road at the time of the last review; the traffic volume or class of road; issues that have been identified by staff that impact the road’s condition; synergies with other projects and funding available in the current year to address issues.

    Since the Waterfront Revitalization project is still some time off, could the picnic shelter and the signage posts in both Joe Fowler and Baagwating Park be painted, please.

    Barbara Karthein asked about 1 month ago

    A Structural Assessment for the picnic shelter at Joe Fowler Park was completed in 2020. The report indicates that extensive remediation is needed for all of the structural elements and recommended the closure of the shelter. The 2021 Capital Budget includes funds to remove the existing structure and to replace it with a new picnic shelter.  With respect to the signage posts, yes we will repaint them this summer.

    Climate change and the environment is very important to me. What is the Township doing to safeguard our environment?

    Momsopinion asked 4 months ago

    The Scugog Official Plan, which outlines Council’s direction for growth and development to the year 2031, contains numerous policies to ensure that the Township’s natural environment is protected.  In addition, the Oak Ridges Moraine Plan and the Greenbelt Plan, that apply to the entire Township, include policies to ensure the protection of the Oak Ridges Moraine and the ecological features and functions of the lands within the Greenbelt.  As an example of our focus on the environment, the Township is coordinating the Lake Scugog Enhancement Project that will establish an artificial wetland along the southern portion of the Port Perry waterfront to improve the water quality of Lake Scugog.  In addition, as part of the review of development applications, the Township requires the installation of low impact development features such as infiltration trenches, rain gardens, and permeable pavers to retain as much rainwater on site as possible.  Further, the Township has a tree replacement policy in order to continually increase the tree canopy in the municipality.  These are just a few examples of the many initiatives that the Township is undertaking to safeguard and improve the environment.

    Page 13 of the Township of Scugog, Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan, Part 2, mentions that  the recent public online survey indicates that 72% of respondents identified the need for an indoor pool in Scugog.  I believe that this is the highest unmet need identified in the master plan.    Why then is this being delayed to the 2023 budget ?

    Ivo asked 28 days ago

    Yes, based on the Master Plan there is a very strong desire for an indoor pool.  The Capital Budget forecast includes a preliminary design for an indoor pool in 2023.
