Jackson’s Point Harbourfront Redevelopment Plan

The Town of Georgina initiated a study that  prepared the Jackson’s Point Harbourfront Redevelopment Plan for the lands in the Jackson’s Point Harbour Area.  The study area includes:

  • Town owned lands: Lorne Park, Bonnie Park, Harbour, Bonnie Blvd (road allowance) and Malone Wharf.
  • MSR Lalu Jackson’s Point Inc. lands (former Bonnie Boats)
  • Ramada Hotel
  • Water Lots Associated with these properties

The Redevelopment Plan evolved through broad based engagement with the residential and business community, landowners, technical agencies, Town staff and Council. The Redevelopment Plan set a vision for Jackson’s Point Harbourfront based on the guiding principles for development as outlined in the Sutton/Jackson’s Point Secondary Plan. 

Jackson’s Point is not only known for its beauty, but also its rich history.  Enjoy this video that captures the vitality of this unique area inviting the public to explore what potential opportunities could lie ahead.

After receiving approval from York Region Council, the York Regional Police Services Board announced that the YRP Marine Unit will be moving to a portion of the former Bonnie Boats Marina within Jackson’s Point.  View the official announcement from the YRP Services Board and the release that was issued by the Town of Georgina.

The Town of Georgina retained a consulting firm “The Planning Partnership” who solicited input from the public and with a team comprised of Town staff, technical experts and agencies prepared recommendations for a Redevelopment Plan for the Jackson’s Point Harbourfront.
