Transportation Master Plan

The Town started the process of reviewing, understanding, and potentially improving the Transportation system by hiring a consultant team in August 2018.  This master plan will direct how we grow responsibly with our Town's Official Plan and examine current transportation issues within our community. The plan will also:

  • Assess existing and future growth patterns
  • Determine the need for improvements
  • Establish policies around a needed transportation network

Public consultation on the existing condition was completed from August until November, through Pop-Up Information Centres, interviews with stakeholder groups and an online survey. Results of this consultation can be found here.

The information panels from the Pop-Up Centres have be found here: Saugeen Shores Transportation Master Plan Informational Panels.

The Transportation Master Plan process will continue through 2019. The Transportation Master Plan will be completed in the Fall with a report being presented to Council.  Public information on the alternatives and draft recommendations will occur in the summer.  Updates will be posted to the Town website when available.
