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.

Population, Housing and Employment Projections Study

At the February 2020 County Council meeting, Council received and endorsed the Population, Housing and Employment Projections Study.

The study, projecting out to 2046, will assist with long-range planning for a variety of departments and organizations.

Strategic Asset Management Policy

The comprehensive and holistic asset management approach will support efficient and effective delivery of expected levels of service and ensure these practices are applied to the long-term management and stewardship of all municipal infrastructure assets.

Strategic Goals Implementation Plan
