Coming up with a plan for Confederation Park, l’île du Chenail. Hawkesbury residents, park users invited to have their say

The Town of Hawkesbury want you! It is developing a plan for l’île du Chenail, including Confederation Park, located at the foot of the Long Sault Bridge and has upcoming public sessions planned for community stakeholders. Business workshops are also part of the community engagement process.

The town has commissioned Sierra Planning and Management to develop the plan, along with the community engagement process.

According to the town, the Confederation Park Concept Plan should reflect the needs and priorities of Hawkesbury’s residents and users of the park.  The project team will engage community stakeholders and the public to identify current needs, issues and priorities for Confederation Park.  The project will engage the public through a variety of consultation sessions.

Upcoming community engagement includes:

  1. Community Stakeholders and Business Workshops (open to the public):

Session 1: Thursday, November 7th, 2019, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Session 2: Thursday, November 7th, 2019, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

*Please note: Attendance at both workshops is not necessary, as the above workshop sessions will present the same materials.

  1. Community Workshop: Tuesday November 19th, 2019 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
