December 9, 2020 - 9:15am to January 31, 2021 - 9:15am

THE PROJECT:
The Township of Lucan Biddulph is undertaking a Master Plan for water, wastewater
and stormwater servicing in the community of Lucan. This Master Plan will involve a
review of the existing water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure within Lucan and
an examination of potential future needs as the community continues to grow and
develop. Upon completion, the Master Plan will serve as a strategic document,
recommending future projects and providing a timeline for implementation of the
identified upgrades, expansions or modifications to the infrastructure servicing Lucan.

THE MASTER PLAN PROCESS:
The Servicing Master Plan is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of
the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA), dated October 2000, as
amended in 2007, 2011, and 2015 under the Environmental Assessment Act. Master
Plan studies incorporate Phases 1 & 2 of the Class EA process (identification of the
problem or opportunity, and evaluation of alternative solutions) and also includes
consultation with the general public, community stakeholders, government review
agencies and First Nation and Metis communities.

PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT:
Public consultation is a key component of this study. Initial comments are welcome at
this time. As a part of the consultation component of this project, a public information
meeting will be held during the course of the study. Details regarding the public meeting
will be provided in a future notice. Any comments collected will be maintained on file for
use during the project and may be included in project documentation. With the
exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record.
