Work Continuing on Wawa's Waterfront

Progress is being made on Wawa's waterfront.

Acting Director of Community Services and Tourism Brian Lachine is very optimistic about completion for one important part of the project.

Lachine adds that progress is continuing for an important access point to the beach area.

Lachine notes there are also plans to consult the public on another aspect of the waterfront project.

During a special meeting last week, Wawa Municipal Council approved a staff recommendation to accept a roughly $111,000 proposal from Research Casting - the company which made the current Wawa Goose monument and its themed base - for the design, construction, and installation of "themed interpretive panels" which would be installed along the boardwalk, tying into the waterfront project's boreal forest theme.
