Township of Severn is planning to construct a sidewalk along River Street from Brick Pond Road to the municipal boat launch located at County Road 17 (in front of 73 River Street) in Coldwater. View the study area.

Study process

This study will follow the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act. We're proceeding with a Schedule A Municipal Class Environmental Assessment to consider the impacts of the proposed improvements. The works are pre-approved under the Environmental Assessment Act. However, the design will address:

  • improvements for pedestrian activity through implementation of a sidewalk along the road corridor
  • minimize potential impacts to the existing environment within the area


We encourage members of the public, agencies, Indigenous communities and others who are interested to actively participate in the planning of this project by contacting us with information, comments or questions.
