Stormwater Pond and Bolton Dog Park

Town Hall building

The Town of Caledon has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment to look into improvements to the stormwater management facility (Pond #16) and adjacent dog park located at 12889 Coleraine Drive, Bolton.

The study is following the Class Environmental Assessment Schedule A+ process.

The purpose of the study is to outline all expected and necessary improvements required to rehabilitate the stormwater facility. The study will identify a preferred design for the facility, as well as include a re-designing of the adjacent Dog Park.

Stormwater Pond

In developing a recommended stormwater design, the study will consider a range of options for the stormwater management pond including, but not limited to:

  • Restoring the facility to its original condition to provide flood control
  • Re-designing that pond for water quality improvements

Dog Park

The adjacent dog park will also undergo a re-design to improve user experience. The design will consider a range of improvements including, but not limited to:

  • A small dog area, improving accessibility
  • A permanent fenced perimeter.

The study is currently planned as a Schedule “A+”, in compliance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, amended 2007, 2011 & 2015).

Notice of Public Meeting

A key component of the study is to have consultation with interested stakeholders including public, landowners and regulatory agencies. A virtual public meeting will be held on June 24, 2021 from 6:00 pm to 7:30pm to share updates of the preliminary design and receive input from the public on the study, including the problem and opportunities, existing conditions, and next steps.

This session will be designed to obtain input from the public to assist with informing the preferred design.

Date: June 24, 2021 | Time: 6 - 7:30pm
