Introduction

Quinte Conservation, in partnership with local municipalities and the Government of Canada’s National Disaster Mitigation Program, and in collaboration with Zuzek Inc. Consultants, have started a shoreline study that aims to collect information to aid in further protection of Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario shorelines, as well as safeguarding coastal communities from hazards related to flooding and erosion.

Project Partners

This project is a joint initiative with regional partners including Prince Edward County, the City of Belleville, the City of Quinte West, the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, the Town of Deseronto, and the Town of Greater Napanee. 50 percent of the funding is provided by the Government of Canada’s National Disaster Mitigation Program and the other 50 percent is shared by municipal partners. This project is expected to be completed in early 2022 and will include a second public consultation period to share the completed plan.

The Shoreline Management Plan

The final plan will include beneficial items such as:

  • An updated shoreline inventory
  • Updated hazard mapping for flooding, erosion, and dynamic beaches
  • Recommendations for protecting shorelines and shoreline property owners
  • Information to assist municipal planning recommendations and decisions

The first public consultation took place online from October 6th - October 31st.

The second public consultation will take place on April 12th over zoom from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Participants can RSVP, review the draft plan, review draft mapping, and provide input through the icons below.
