Mill Pond Park Environmental Assessment

NOTICE OF STUDY COMMENCEMENT
MILL POND STORMWATER MANAGEMENT REHABILITATION
ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT
 

 
 
The Town of Richmond Hill is undertaking a comprehensive study for the rehabilitation and renewal of Mill Pond Park. As part of the study, an Environmental Assessment (EA) will be completed to evaluate existing stormwater drainage within the Mill Pond Park study area and propose options for rehabilitation. At the same time, a Mill Pond Park Master Plan will be completed to guide the redevelopment of the park and provide direction about the type of outdoor facilities and improvements the community would like to see.
 
Environmental Assessment
The EA study will assess the current storm drainage and infrastructure with respect to water quality, erosion and flood protection. Alternatives will be developed and evaluated to find the best solution for improving these systems.
 
Public Consultation
Two Public Information Centres (PICs) will be held during the course of the study to provide information on the EA process and the stormwater alternatives being considered. PICs will also be held as part of the park master plan process so the community can help shape the design of the park. PIC notices will be published in the Bulletin Board pages of the Liberal newspaper, mailed to homes surrounding thestudy area and posted on the Town’s website at RichmondHill.ca/MillPondProject.
