The Town of Georgina is moving forward with a comprehensive review of its parks and beaches. The summer of 2018 has seen an influx of people visiting the community, and in particular, the beachfront parks and Sibbald Point Provincial Park. This has led to overcrowding which has resulted in challenging situations around the beaches and parks including insufficient parking, increased traffic, additional garbage and inadequate washroom conditions. The behaviour of some has required the Town to provide additional security including paid-duty police officers.
The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority advises that conditions are ideal this afternoon and evening for the development of severe thunderstorms.
Intense rainfall associated with these thunderstorms may result in flooding of low lying areas. All watercourses in our area may experience higher than normal water levels. As a result, local streams and rivers will become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts and bridges. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.
Don’t forget to plan for fall while still enjoying summer. The 2018 Fall/2019 Winter Recreation and Culture Guide was distributed in the Thursday, August 9 Georgina Advocate. If you didn’t receive one, you can view the guide online, or pick one up at your local library or the Civic Centre. Registration opens August 21 at 8:30 a.m. Register early to reserve your spot!
