Innisfil Beach Park Ad Hoc Committee

What is the Innisfil Beach Park Ad Hoc Committee?

The Innisfil Beach Park Ad Hoc Committee (IBPAHC) is a Committee of Council whose purpose is to review issues surrounding Innisfil Beach Park and to advise and make recommendations to Council on these matters. The Committee will search for solutions that will enhance the overall user experience at the park.

• Review concerns and issues about Innisfil Beach Park raised by various stakeholders including residents, Staff, Council, local businesses and park users. The Committee shall meet as required to evaluate potential solutions or a plan of action for Council’s approval. If potential solutions are minor in nature and are within the scope of current Council-approved operating and capital budget amounts, Staff may implement such solutions as suggested by the Committee without further approval from Council.

• Promote and support the implementation of strategies and solutions to alleviate concerns of over-crowding and parking at Innisfil Beach Park.

• These strategies could include community engagement, public education and awareness, the recommendation of by-laws and other methods.

• Members may brainstorm, investigate, research and liaise with any other persons or groups to fulfill the mandate or purpose of this Committee.

On July 8, 2020 the Innisfil Beach Park Ad Hoc Committee along with Town Staff provided Council with a special update concerning Innisfil Beach Park. They provided information about some of the measures the Committee has taken to improve user experience, a summary of all the hard work that has gone into making the park safe for people to enjoy during COVID-19 and addressed some of the major questions surrounding the park, namely, why it would be a challenge to make it resident-only.
