Responding to concerns raised during the hot summer of 2018 surrounding waterfront parks, Council has endorsed several actions as a ‘pilot’ to improve experiences for both visitors and area residents for this year’s beach season.
The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority advises that the forecast is calling for a few rounds of rainfall for portions of southern Ontario over the next couple of days. Precipitation will likely move in later this afternoon or evening and continue off and on into Friday.

The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority advises that the watershed is expected to receive approximately 5mm of rain this afternoon, then 30-40mm on Sunday with an additional 5-10mm early next week.
Forecast rainfall amounts will result in higher than normal water levels and flows in rivers and streams, creating potentially hazardous conditions. The combination of slippery and unstable banks and cold water temperatures will create hazardous conditions close to any river, stream or other water bodies.
There is also a potential for flooding in low lying areas.
Georgina Council has approved the preferred designs for the West Park redevelopment and the new Sutton Community Park. Both projects are part of Building Georgina, an initiative to keep residents, businesses and visitors informed about major projects that are proposed and underway.
