Harbour Parks committee

The Harbour Parks Committee's focus is on the use of the public harbour parklands, including Hofhuis Park, the Berm (East Headlands) and the joining harbour walkway.

To do this, the committee:

  •  collects the views of interested Port Stanley residents through focus groups, discussions, and surveys, and
  •  makes suggestions and recommendations through the PSVA Inc to Central Elgin Council and Staff regarding these public parklands
Members of this Committee are:  Steve Glover, Nigel Howcroft, David Harvey, Bob Low, Nancy Moore, Cynthia Petts, Dan Ross, Wendy Sim, John Sim, Allen Slater (Chair).

The Harbour Parks Committee is an expansion of the former PSVA Berm Committee.  The purpose of the Berm Committee was to promote residents' views that at least 70% of the Berm remain public land for public use.  This continues to be one focus of the Harbour Parks Committee.  For more information on the Berm Committee initiatives, please go to https://portstanleyberm.ca 
On that website, you can see what other communities have been doing with their public waterfront lands.
A sub committee of the Harbour Parks Committee is The Carolinian Project Team.  Their goal is to research and make suggestions and recommendations to Central Elgin Council and Staff on ways to establish Carolinian vegetation areas on the Harbour Parks.  Recently the team has been working closely with the ECO class students at Kettle Creek Public School.
Members of this team are Cynthia Petts and Nancy Moore (Co-leaders) with Allen Slater and David Harvey.

An update from the Carolinian Project Team:

The grade 7/8 ECO class at Kettle Creek Public School has been working with Carolinian Canada and the Harbour Parks Committee of the PSVA.
Karol, the Program Manager at Carolinian Canada asked the students to use pictures and/or words to describe "what would the land on the Berm want to be in the future"? The amazing student work is shared in the collage of pictures below. 

How would you answer the question:  What do you think the Berm would want to be in the future?
