Studies, Plans and Reports

Age-Friendly Community Action Plan

Frontenac County Age-Friendly Community Action Plan.

Asset Management Plan

The 2013 Asset Management Plan serves as a strategic, tactical, and financial document, ensuring the management of the municipal infrastructure follows sound asset management practices and principles, while optimizing available resources and establishing desired levels of service.

Communal Services Study

At the June 2019 Council meeting, the Council for the Corporation of the County of Frontenac approved the Communal Services Study. Communal services are systems that provide water and wastewater treatment to clusters of residences or businesses. The main purpose of the study was to demonstrate that the perceived obstacles - engineering, financial, risk management, planning - are just that, and to equip Frontenac with the tools necessary to enable redevelopment and new development on the basis of communal servicing. Communal servicing has the potential to support more compact, land efficient development than is possible with private servicing, at a lower cost than is possible with centralized municipal services, and enable revitalization of the Frontenac's communities. WSP Consulting was retained to complete the study and employed a team comprised of planners, engineers and financial risk analysts.

Natural Heritage Study

The Natural Heritage Study is a comprehensive evaluation of natural heritage features such as wetlands, forest cover, and wildlife habitat at a regional scale across the County, and includes the mapping of a connected system of these features. The mapping is accompanied with policy recommendations that can be used by planners to protect significant natural features from development. This comprehensive regional review of natural heritage mapping and policies set a foundation for the natural heritage policies of the first draft of the County Official Plan.

Strategic Goals Implementation Plan

Created in 2014, the Strategic Goals Implementation Plan included County Council's three goals. The three goals are intended to focus the efforts of Council and administration on projects and outcomes that will address service issues for County residents.

Strategic Plan 2019-2022

Population, Housing and Employment Projections for the Frontenacs: 2011 to 2036

County Council approved funding to update population and growth projections for the County and townships as part of the 2013 budget. Result was the Population, Housing and Employment Projections for the Frontenacs: 2011 to 2036 report. The population and growth projections will support a number of initiatives in Sustainable Actions and assist with long-range planning for a variety of departments and organizations.
Watson & Associates Economists Limited was retained to revise their work from 2011. As they did previously, Watson reviewed background information including development applications, Official Plan policies, building permits, MPAC information and other data, as well as a significant amount of data from Statistics Canada. This background information was used to produce estimates for changes in population and demographics projections from 2011 to 2036.

Private Roads (Lanes) Study 2016

The purpose of the Private Roads (Lanes) Study 2016 was to undertake a County-wide assessment of the existing private lanes system in the County of Frontenac; to recommend a planning framework that can be used to best manage these lanes; to promote lane improvements, and to provide planning policies for township Official Plans to act as a guide for future development on private lanes.
