PDWPA – Riverfront Park Project – 2015

Port Dover Lighthouse A Heritage Building!

Port Dover Lighthouse A Heritage Building!

A new year has begun and already plans are afoot to move forward with key projects! Our top projects are Riverfront Park, Silver Lake, the Lighthouse and the Marina. In the past 12 months, we have moved forward and the Harbour Lighthouse has been saved. It has  now been declared an official heritage site.  The latter is a tribute to what can happen when we are working in partnership with the County and our Community Residents!

The Riverfront Park project has also moved forward and is getting closer to the landscape architect’s concept.

This project has been underway for ten years, spearheaded by Ed Laevens, Jim Murphy and Chris Baird at the County. It was originally known as the ‘Friends of the Docks’ group and the ‘dinghy dock’ project. It should be noted that the dockage is for dinghies and small craft under 20′ only. These requirements are strictly enforced.

The following few pictures document the changes since 2011 until the present and end with a peek at the future.

    After reading about the annual meeting, November 23.
    I would be interested in becoming involved beit as a volunteer or
    Board member.

    • Administrator Says:

      Thank you David. I will share your contact information with the Board. The usual process is that they will arrange a meeting with you to discuss your interest. Usually someone interested in joining the board is asked to attend meetings as part of an orientation to confirm it will be a mutually agreeable fit. You will likely be called by Paul Lipsit if not before Christmas, certainly early in the New Year. Thank you so much for contacting us as we will need a lot of volunteers as we embark on a big project this year!
