At the special meeting of the Board of Directors of the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority this morning the following motion was passed.
Be it resolved, that the ABCA Board of Directors declares that it will not implement the ABCA Shoreline Development Guidelines of Section 7.8 in the report (pages 113-117) and does not endorse the underlying principle of “managed retreat” and the outright prohibition of all shoreline protection works.
And be it further resolved that the Board of Directors continues to endorse the use of policies as contained in the 2000 Shoreline Management Plan and the Board of Directors directs staff to provide options to re-engage the public to update the 2000 Shoreline Management Plan.
Th Shoreline Management Plan will still be updated and we can expect this to take some time. BSRA will be monitoring the process that has yet to be determined.
Today, the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority has announced a special meeting of the Board of Directors to deal with the Consultants’ Recommendations.
