The City of Sarnia is developing a new master plan for the Sarnia Waterfront to guide its future development and redevelopment, and the public is invited to share their input.

Stretching from the Sarnia Marina in the north down to Rainbow Park at Devine and Christina Streets, Sarnia’s waterfront is one of the City’s premier destinations and home to many important community events including the Sarnia Celebration of Lights and Canada Day celebrations. 

This new master plan presents an opportunity for the public to explore creative ways to revitalize the waterfront and identify new and innovative programming and activities for the area.

The City is asking residents, businesses, community organizations, and visitors for their input and ideas with the commencement of an initial public consultation program:

June 14th – launch of the project webpage at www.speakupsarnia.ca/ and initial online public survey.

Note Change: June 24th to July 1st– visit www.speakupsarnia.ca to view pre-recorded webinars by the consulting project team and provide additional feedback on specific topics related to the waterfront.

June 26th – Members of the public are welcomed to attend an informal drop-in consultation at the Centennial Park Flag Court (located along the waterfront at the base of London Road and Front St in Centennial Park) between 10 am and 2 pm. There will be a chance to cast a vote for their preferred waterfront ideas and an opportunity to share their thoughts and new ideas with City Staff (respecting public health regulations).

As the project progresses there will be additional opportunities to provide input.  The public is encouraged to visit speakupsarnia.ca for more information and additional opportunities to participate.
