The area around the dock located behind the Neilson Store Museum and Cultural Centre on Stella Bay, Amherst Island will be upgraded to improve safety, restore the shoreline, prevent erosion, and improve access.

Erosion of the bank at the south end of the dock has undercut an adjacent concrete slab causing it to settle and creating a potential safety hazard. Township staff have completed preliminary design work and are looking for feedback before beginning construction. If this project is ready to go to tender in September 2021, the project is anticipated to be completed by November 2021.

Providing Feedback:

The dock on Amherst Island located behind the Neilson Store Museum and Cultural Centre on Stella Bay will be upgraded to improve safety, restore the shoreline, prevent erosion, and improve access.
