Notice of Study Commencement and PIC 1 for Beach Boulevard Community Flood Remediation Master Plan and EA
The City has initiated the Beach Boulevard Community Flood Remediation Master Plan and Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to examine the recommendations of the 2019 Study; complete public, review agency, and First Nations consultation; evaluate additional viable alternatives and select preferred solutions; and identify measures to mitigate adverse impacts. This EA Study is being undertaken following the Master Plan process to provide a logical approach for delivering a strategic suite of options to better address overall system needs. Upon completion of the Study, a Project File Report documenting the planning and decision making processes that were followed will be prepared and made available for public review.
In 2019, the City of Hamilton completed the Beach Boulevard Community Stormwater Ponding Study. This Study recommended a number potential improvement measures ranging from administrative and legislative in nature, to large scale infrastructure projects. While some of the recommendations are currently being further developed for implementation, others require more in-depth examination of existing conditions, and are subject to Regulatory Agency requirements.
The Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process
The Study will follow the planning and design process as defined in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015).
