Register for a spot in shoreline meetings


There is still time to register for the next Lake Erie Shoreline study meeting.

But Friday is the final day to guarantee a seat at a meeting to provide the latest update on plans to deal with the Lake Erie shoreline flooding and erosion issues.

Meetings will be held Nov. 26 at the Links of Kent Golf Club Event Centre on Indian Creek Road in Chatham.

Bruce McAllister, Director of Planning Services of the Municipality of Chatham-Kent said every effort will be made to accommodate those who don’t register, but that capacity is limited.

The first session runs from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the second will take place from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The same information will be presented at both sessions.

The Chatham-Kent Lake Erie Shoreline Study Team will provide an update of activities and present the draft adaptation concepts and management options for the following regions of the shoreline:

  • High bluff areas,
  • Erie Beach, Erie Shore Drive, and the dyked farmland,
  • flood-prone communities around Rondeau Bay; and
  • federal navigation channel and Rondeau barrier beach.

“This will provide residents with the latest information prepared by the study team,” McAllister said in a media release. “There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes since our last meeting.”

Following the formal presentation and question period, community members will engage in facilitated breakout groups to discuss the adaptation concepts by geographic region.

To register, call 519-360-1998 or you can e-mail your preferred time to, by Friday.
