Public Engagement: reviewed three concept options and gathered feedback to narrow down to a preferred concept
Functional Program Public Engagement: confirm the program for Beaumaris Lake - gathered feedback to understand community needs, operational requirements and long-term goals and vision for the site
Beaumaris Lake Stormwater Condition Assessment.
Public Consultation - May 2015
Needs Assessment Stakeholder Interviews - Summer 2013
In 2016, the City completed a condition assessment of Beaumaris Lake which included the surrounding landscape, community amenities (open space) and the stormwater facility (lake). While the stormwater facility was confirmed to be functioning well in terms of flood protections and water quality enhancement, the assessment pointed to a need for rehabilitation of the surrounding landscaping and open spaces around the stormwater facility and adjacent park.
The objective of this first project phase is to develop a functional plan - essentially the long-term “vision” for the lake - which will be used to create concepts. Approved concepts will help to inform designs required for request in the next capital budget cycle.
Three rounds of public engagement activities, for each phase of the project, was completed to find out how residents and visiting users were using the open space surrounding the stormwater facility. Feedback gathered outlined what people would like to see improved or changed.
A number of concept options were created for the sections of open space around the stormwater facility based on the feedback gathered. These concept options were then shared with the public to provide an opportunity for input on what they liked and what they would prefer was changed.
All input gathered was used to inform the preferred concept design, which will be shared at the upcoming public engagement in Spring/Summer 2018.
