Port Stanley Village Association
New Website Launched in Port Stanley

A new website has been launched to inform and engage people to support the future of the Berm in Port Stanley as public land primarily for public use. The address is www.portstanleyberm.ca.

The Berm is 23 acres of lakefront on the east side of the harbour in Port Stanley. Its future has been a matter of public debate before and during the recent municipal election. It consists of land divested to the Municipality of Central Elgin by the Federal Government that has been rehabilitated to parkland standards.

In 2019, the Municipality will make decisions about the Berm's future, through its Secondary Plan process, now underway

The website provides information about the evolution of ideas for the future of the Berm and examples of how other waterfront communities in Ontario have developed rehabilitated land. Through the website, the public can get involved in helping determine the Berm's future.

Parallel social media include a Facebook page 'Port Stanley Berm' and a Twitter account @portstanleyberm.

The website and social media were developed by the Berm Committee, a sub-committee of the Port Stanley Village Association. The site was launched at the Association's recent Annual General Meeting. 2018 when members voted to support retaining the Berm primarily for public use.
