Municipal officials are organizing what they are calling a Community Café for informal discussions over the future of Shrewsbury.
The event will take place Aug. 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Shrewsbury & Raglan Assembly Community Centre, 112 New Scotland Line.
Representatives of the firm of T.Y.Lin, as well as Chatham-Kent staff will provide a short presentation at 6 p.m. to introduce the project.
After the presentation, the project team will break into groups. Each group will focus on different aspects of the study.
Residents and stakeholders are encouraged to identify and describe flooding events or servicing concerns within each group. These concerns will be transcribed to maps by the project team. The maps will then be used to develop a detailed summary of issues and challenges to inform the assessment of existing servicing and the development of recommendations.
In the spring of 2021, municipal council passed a motion directing staff to initiate a Master Plan Servicing Study for Shrewsbury. The Servicing Study will include servicing strategies for drainage, stormwater, sanitary, and water to accommodate current conditions, as well as future growth considerations.
Also included in the study are erosion control measures for the protection of municipal infrastructure along the shorelines.
T.Y.Lin International Canada Inc. has been retained by the Municipality of Chatham-Kent to provide engineering services to assist in completing this Study.
