Yes, it's on Labour Day weekend, but if you aren't planning to be here in October and November, this is your opportunity to learn about candidates before the vote. A Zoom link will be distributed for members late next week. Zoom participants will be able to ask questions, too.

    Residents urged to stay home for all but essential activities

    The Town of Saugeen Shores has declared a state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Town’s Emergency Control Group (ECG) met today to review plans as municipal staff continue to deliver critical services.

    Declaring a state of emergency means that the municipality can access additional resources and expertise throughout this period. With this declaration and the provincial government’s decision to close non-essential businesses, the Town of Saugeen Shores will also see several changes.

    Essential services will focus on the following: policing, fire and emergency response; water supply and waste water treatment; emergency infrastructure repair; winter control; and supporting other essential services as identified by the province.

    The Southampton Landfill operations and hours will be modified. As well, the municipality has closed all playground structures, public washrooms, the Skate Park, BMX Park and Off-Leash Dog Park.

    “The Town is committed to keeping our community safe and continuing essential service delivery,” said Mayor Luke Charbonneau. “But I want to be clear: the COVID-19 pandemic is a serious situation for everyone in Saugeen Shores. Stay home for all but essential activities, including buying food, medicine, or going to work.”

    The Mayor added: “To anyone planning to visit cottages in Saugeen Shores in the coming days, I am asking you now to postpone those plans. Our healthcare resources will be stretched thin by those people already in our community, so please, stay home. When this situation is over, Saugeen Shores will eagerly welcome you, but now is not the time.”

    Residents are encouraged to visit www.SaugeenShores.ca/COVID-19 for accurate information and resources from our community.

    The Town of Saugeen Shores has initiated a review of its Official Plan and will hold a Public Meeting and an online survey seeking input to this initiative and to understand the opinions of the public.


    Date: Monday, August 19, 2019

    Time: 6:30 – 8:30 pm

    Location: Town of Saugeen Shores Municipal Office, 600 Tomlinson Drive, Port Elgin, ON


    The purpose of the Official Plan Review is to address the requirements of the Planning Act, which requires municipalities to conduct an Official Plan Review every five years and to address Provincial plans, policies and matters of Provincial interest. The Official Plan Review is a Town-wide initiative potentially affecting all land within the Town of Saugeen Shores. GSP Group Inc. has been retained by the Town to assist Town Staff with the process.


    The Official Plan is a statement of goals, objectives and policies to guide future growth, land use and development within the Town of Saugeen Shores for the next 20 years. The Town’s current Official Plan was approved in 2014 and has been subject to several amendments.


    The purpose of the Public Meeting is to provide members of the public with information about the Official Plan Review process and how to participate. This is also an initial opportunity for public input to areas of the current Official Plan that should be changed or addressed differently in the new Official Plan, and to participate in shaping the future vision and direction for the Town of Saugeen Shores.


    Anyone attending with respect to the Official Plan Review will be given an opportunity to provide comments at the Public Meeting. Additional opportunities to submit comments will be made available at other times during the Review. If you are submitting letters, faxes, e-mails, presentations or other communications to the Town concerning the Official Plan Review, personal information (such as name, address and comments) may be contained in reports to council and published on the Town’s website.


    In addition to the Public Meeting on August 19 at 6:30 pm, the Town will be holding the following public engagement opportunities during Summer 2019:

    • Cruisers Cruise Nite in Southampton, Thursday August 15, 6:30-9:00 pm. Come enjoy the classic cars and talk to us about your ideas for land use planning and development in Saugeen Shores.
    • An online survey to gather respondents' top priorities, which will be used to develop a list of policies to be reviewed. Complete the survey before September 30, 2019 at saugeenshores.ca/OPReview.

    Additional opportunities for public comment will be provided at later dates. Visit saugeenshores.ca/OPReview to stay up to date on the OP Review.

    SAVE THE DATE – Saturday, July 6th

    for a Donor Appreciation Cocktail Party (Donations for the Supplemental lighting system for the Playhouse) and Welcome-to-Summer get together

    4 to 6 pm on Saturday, July 6th 2019 at Bruce County Museum.

    Music by the Mike Grace/John McLelland Duo

    This spring Southampton Residents Association Board of Directors committed to raise $3,000 in donations for Bruce County Playhouse to purchase a supplementary theatrical lighting system to be installed in Southampton Town Hall to enhance special lighting effects for live theatre in Saugeen Shores.  SRA will match these donations from the accumulated surplus from past Golf Tournaments to reach the total cost of just under $6,000.

    Accordingly we invite you (a) to contribute to this project with a donation to Bruce County Playhouse and (b) to attend the Donor Appreciation Cocktail Party outlined above.  Charitable donation receipts will be issued for the full amount of all donations.

    So please complete and return the attached form, SAVE THE DATE and join us, your neighbours and friends at this welcome-to-summer get-together 4 to 6 pm on July 6th at the Museum.  Thank you immensely for your donation from your fundraising committee of Carolee Fox, Jim Henning, Jayne Wickens and Chuck Wilson.


    In 2016 Southampton Residents Association (SRA) members donated $11,189 to Bruce County Playhouse (BCP) at our biennial golf tournament to pay for a basic theatre lighting system installed in the Southampton Town Hall to allow BCP to present their first full season of live theatre.  Their presentations over the past three and a half years have been a great addition to the quality of life in Saugeen Shores.

    During the 2018 season BCP rented auxiliary lighting in order to stage one of their plays.  This was so successful and provided so much additional flexibility that they approached SRA again to see whether we would purchase this auxiliary package.  The SRA Board enthusiastically endorses the project, and accordingly we are asking our members for donations.Donation Form.docx
