Master Plans & Class EAs

Hamilton West Harbour Shoreline and Breakwater

As part of the development of the Recreation Master Plan, the City initiated the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment or Class EA process to address any infrastructure required to implement the Harbour West Concept. It was identified that improvements to the breakwater were needed to adequately protect the existing marina and any future expansion, and that improvements to the shoreline were needed to address structural issues and improve public safety, as well as meet flood standards.

Study status: Completed. Currently in the design and construction phrase.

Classification: Breakwater infrastructure has been completed as a Schedule C project. Shoreline improvements have been completed as a Schedule B project.
