Risk and Impact Projects / Belleville Waterfront (Bakelite Property)
Public Private Partnership, Belleville, Ontario, 2011-2012
Sierra Planning and Management worked with the developer of a 92-acre prime waterfront, former industrial property located just east of Downtown Belleville. The heavily contaminated site contains provincially significant wetlands which will be protected and a Lake Ontario Waterfront trail established in proximity to the shoreline. Sierra has assisted in the development of a partnership between the City of Belleville and the owner-developer to access both environmental assessment funding and low interest capital loans for the remediation of the property through the Green Municipal Fund operated by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
