Notice of Public Information Centre #2 Walnut Lane Extension

Posted on Thursday November 05, 2020

The Study

The City of Pickering (City) is currently undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study to extend Walnut Lane from the section presently constructed south of Kingston Road, eastward to Liverpool Road (see map). The extension is required to service existing, approved and proposed development in the City Centre and Liverpool neighbourhoods and will accommodate all road users (vehicles, public transit, cyclists and pedestrians). Alternatives for crossing Pine Creek are also being considered.

The Process

The Class EA study follows the Schedule "C" planning process as per the Municipal Engineers Association’s, Municipal Class EA manual (October 2000, amended 2007, 2011 and 2015).
Public input is essential to this study. The first Public Information Centre (PIC) was presented in an online format in June 2019 with material available on the City’s Website: www.pickering.ca/walnutlane

How to Participate in Public Information Centre #2

There are two ways to participate in PIC #2. All consultations are being held virtually to protect the health and safety of participants and the project team due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
