Waterfront Issues and Options Analysis

The Town of Arnprior has officially begun an analysis of the Town’s waterfront to identify ways of enhancing a very valuable local asset – the shores of the Madawaska and Ottawa Rivers.  The purpose of the analysis is to consider options for the best mix of land uses and activities in order to create a vibrant and active waterfront. The analysis will also consider opportunities with respect to the nature and scope of investments which could contribute to the revitalization of the waterfront. The Waterfront Issues and Options Analysis will also provide a strategic direction and action plan to ensure successful next steps.  The analysis area includes both shores of the Madawaska River and the Ottawa River along to Gillies Grove.

The Town of Arnprior is now in Phase 2 of the Waterfront Issues & Options Analysis. The Analysis is intended to provide guidance to the Town in capitalizing on the true potential of the waterfront to better serve the existing and future residents along with the very important visitor population of Arnprior on a year-round basis.

The Study will provide the Town of Arnprior with a solid understanding of:

  • The best mix of viable land uses and activities supported by the residents, visitors and the marketplace;
  • The nature and scope of investments required by both the public and/or public sectors;
  • A strategic direction and action plan to ensure successful next steps.

Phase 1 was all about your ideas (Please click here for a summary of phase 1). Phase 2 uses what we heard to create a proposed plan of action staged over a number of years. On display will be a series of options around the following themes:

  • The Pathway Network
  • The Marina
  • Robert Simpson Park
  • Bell Park
  • Long Term Plans

Upon completion of this Analysis, a report will be available for public review and comment. A notice will be published at that time.

Any comments received will be incorporated in the Study, with the exception of personal information.
