Notice of the Second Public Information Centre - Municipality of Port Hope
Municipal Class Environmental Assessment and Design for the Proposed Extension of Choate Street

The Municipality of Port Hope has retained Ainley Group to complete design activities and to undertake the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) process for the proposed extension of Choate Street. Choate Street is located between Hayward Street and Marsh Street in the south end of the Municipality of Port Hope, adjacent to Lake Ontario, and was recommended for extension as part of the approved federal environmental assessment for the Vision in Motion project at the Port Hope Conversion Facility. The Vision in Motion study was approved in accordance with Canadian Environmental Assessment Act requirements in 2012.

The preliminary and detail design activities for Choate street are being initiated as a Schedule ‘B’ undertaking in accordance with the MCEA, which applies to municipal infrastructure projects including roads, bridges, water, and wastewater projects.
Public and agency consultation is an important component of the Environmental Assessment process. The first Public Information Centre (PIC) was held on October 10th, 2018 to provide information regarding project alternatives and to answer questions regarding the project. A second PIC is being held to provide information regarding revised alternative solutions and to provide additional information on the project.

PIC #2 will be held on March 28th, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at 56 Queen Street in the Council Chambers, Port Hope, Ontario. The PIC will consist of a formal presentation at the start of the meeting followed by a drop-in type format with displays showing project background information.

Staff from the Municipality and Project Lead Consultant will be on hand to answer any questions. Subject to comments received and the receipt of necessary approvals, the Municipality of Port Hope intends to proceed with the planning, design, and construction of this project.

The summary report from PIC #1 is available on the Choate Street Extension Community Consultation Page.
