Ad Hoc Monitoring Group on Waterfront Construction

In October 2014, the City established a citizens’ Ad Hoc Monitoring Group on Waterfront Construction to proactively address impacts such as noise, hauling, dust and other impacts, once development along the waterfront begins. Read more for members and meetings.

Page updated on Dec 10, 2020 at 5:37 PM


The monitoring group membership is comprised of the following individuals representing the noted organizations.  These members serve as  liaisons between the Ad Hoc Monitoring Group and their respective organizations, keeping the lines of communication open regarding the progress of private and public development along the waterfront and to identify any concerns the community may have as such activity occurs. A City project team consisting of representatives from Code Administration, and the Departments of Transportation and Environmental Services; Project Implementation; and Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities is assisting the Ad Hoc Monitoring Group in this process.    

Meetings & Materials

Unless otherwise posted, Monitoring Group meetings are held the first Monday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Sister Cities Conference Room, City Hall, 301 King St.
