Georgian Bay's Wasaga Beach Development In the News

Getting the Cars Off Wasaga Beach Strip Can Only Be Good For The Environment and the health of all of the visitors who swim at Wasaga. With the announcement today in the Globe and Mail of the massive re-development of Wasaga Beach, a part of the plan is to move the traditional driving strip (which is close to the water) into a boardwalk. This will help stop the amount of oil drippings and other auto detritus washed into Georgian Bay. This will help Wasaga maintain its Blue Flag quality beach status and a health safe environment for families.

The theme of a 'New Orleans' concept is perhaps not as culturally appealing as a sound Canadian historical theme. This is the side of the Development that needs to be tweaked with community input from the historical and cultural development side.
I don't not see any reference to the beach ecology of the area, and this needs to be addressed.
Otherwise, the concept of a newer four season resort development is all positive for Wasaga Beach and the open concept Georgian Bay Eco Museum. Congratulations go out to Levy brothers insight and vision.

It's a great idea to get rid of the cars on the beach. Who wants to swim in oil?

While a Disney-by-the-Bay would not be my first choice, I do think it high time something was done to spruce up Wasaga Beach. The '60s and '70s have come and gone, after all.
