The ISWM-MP included the <br />prioritization and detailed design of projects, thereby removing the need to complete project - <br />specific Environmental Assessments. These projects are pre -approved to move directly into the <br />implementation phase (final design and construction) of the Municipal Class Environmental <br />Assessment Planning and Design Process. City Staff is preparing to retain professional services <br />for the creek restoration design for reach SC -213, Schneider Creek at Old Carriage Road; <br />however, there are "secondary" priority erosions sites that can be included in the scope of work <br />identified, not pre -approved in the ISWM-MP. <br />*** This information is available in accessible formats upon request. *** <br />Please call 519-741-2345 or TTY 1-866-969-9994 for assistance. <br />Page 8 of 132 <br />
