Background

The current Waterfront Master Plan for the Pool 6 lands was updated in 2015. The plan provided recommendations for several land uses on the property including:

  • a mountain bike/skating area
  • a large multi-use field
  • a Nordic Spa
  • a cruise ship wharf and a pavilion including cruise ship visitor amenities

Since the 2015 update however, several new opportunities that have presented themselves. With new interest from external developers, a growing Great Lakes cruise ship industry, and an ongoing Highest and Best Use Study led by the Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission (CEDC), it is timely to update the Pool 6 Lands Waterfront Master Plan.

The update of the Master Plan will include:

  • a review of the existing Plan recommendations
  • generation of options based on new opportunities
  • determining pros and cons of the options
  • results of the Highest and Best Use Study
  • consultation with stakeholders
  • presentation of concepts and information to the public for feedback
  • formulation of a new concept plan for the Pool 6 lands

Public engagement opportunities

The Stage 1 - Waterfront Master Plan Update survey has now closed. Please stay tuned for further opportunities to have your say on the future of the development of the Pool 6 lands.
