Inspiration Port Credit was launched in 2012 as part of the Strategic Plan to create a model, sustainable, creative community on the waterfront. A project kick-off event and community waterfront workshops were held in the fall to introduce the project and engage the community on the future of the Imperial Oil lands and the Canada Lands Company site. A new online, two-way communications tool was developed as part of the public engagement. The interactive website allows for a 24/7 gathering place for comments, questions and ideas – it’s “community meeting” place.
Inspiration Port Credit will weave together public and private planning for the future of Port Credit’s waterfront and will take its direction from the great work already completed on the Port Credit Local Area Plan. The project will define the future for over 40.5 hectares of land, 22.3 hectares of water and over 1.3 kilometres of Lake Ontario shoreline.
The City’s team is working with landowners, including Canada Lands Company Limited and Imperial Oil Limited, to blend the needs of the community and landowners. With Inspiration Port Credit and Inspiration Lakeview well underway, the city’s waterfront is on its way to becoming a premier waterfront community and destination.
Watch for the results of the project in 2013.
