Public Notice - Consultation Period

Re: Consultation Period for the Renaming of Colonization Road East and Colonization Road West

Mayor and Council of the Town of Fort Frances have passed Resolution No. 637 declaring their intent to rename Colonization Road East and Colonization Road West. By initiating the change through resolution, Council has provided administration the authority to issue Notice of Public Meeting to commence a 30-day consultation period prior to hosting an open public meeting as outlined in the Street Naming and Renaming Policy (No. 6.4).

During this 30-day consultation period the Town of Fort Frances encourages you to provide additional input on the matter as well as propose a street name. Input, proposed names, and comments received during the public meeting and consultation period will be summarized and presented to the Planning and Development Executive Committee to narrow the selection down to five names. When a name is proposed, it is requested that rationale and supporting information be submitted along with the suggested name. These five names along with additional input received will then be presented to Mayor and Council for decision on the renaming of Colonization Road East and Colonization Road West.
