Chip and seal work

North Perth has been developing a long-term strategy to strengthen and support the transportation network within the community. The North Perth Transportation Master Plan (NPTMP) will provide a vision and policy framework for a complete transportation system that will meet travel demands to 2041 in a manner that is sustainable and compatible with future growth. The study will identify the Road Network Hierarchy, assess future needs including truck routing and active transportation corridors as well as recommend needed policy and comment on the phasing and costs of recommended solutions. The study will follow the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act) and align with the Municipality’s Corporate Strategic Plan, land use plans, and other policies. The need for a Truck Route was identified through the NPTMP and is now a separated project where the evaluation of alternatives and a recommendation on a preferred option is now part of this project.

  • Initial review and the first round of Consultation and findings have been conducted (completed)
  • Assessment and Development of alternatives are being finalized (in progress, Council has asked for a Bypass selection to be included in the NPTMP)
  • A final round of Consultation is being planned for June 2022 
  • A parallel Study on Traffic and Pedestrian usage and potential traffic calming on Wallace Avenue South was completed ad implemented in 2021. 
  • Final Presentations on the Truck Route Recommendations and the Transportation Master Plan are expected to be presented to Council in late 2022.

North Perth TMP - FAQ - 2024

The Municipality of North Perth is undertaking a Servicing Master Plan for stormwater, wastewater and water servicing in the communities of Listowel and Atwood. The Master Plan was initiated in late 2021, investigation and surveying of assets is continuing in the data gathering phase. Existing and future needs for infrastructure as the two communities will be understood through the project that is expected for completion in 2023. Upon completion, the Master Plan will serve as a strategic document, and identify infrastructure upgrades or expansions to support continued growth and address existing deficiencies. 

The Master Plan Process

The Servicing Master Plan is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) document, 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 Indigenous communities. The process has just been initiated. There will be additional opportunities for public comment and input as the process moves forward. 

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 records.
