Project Update:

On October 25, 2017, Town of Penetanguishene Council approved the bid provided by JB Enterprises Limited to complete the reconstruction of Main Street in one (1) year.  The Main Street Reconstruction project is anticipated to start early in April 2018 and is scheduled be substantially completed by November 30, 2018. 

Since, October 2017, Town staff have been working diligently with the selected contractor to help plan and approve the approach with which JB Enterprises will be completing the project.  As part of the preparation for the project to begin, two (2) Public Information Sessions have taken place.  The first occurring in November of 2017 and the second being in February 2018. Both of these information sessions had excellent attendance and provided a valuable question and answer period once the project approach was outlined by JB Enterprises.  Information regarding these sessions are available as links on this Main Street Reconstruction webpage. 

It is the Town and the Contractors intention to maintain open communication at all times and to assist with accomplishing this task, the Town will be issuing periodic updates regarding the project status.  Residents that have already provided email addresses have been added to the listing to receive the automated updates, but if you would like to receive updates simply subscribe to our Town mailing list and notices will be sent to your inbox when they are posted. The link button to the website subscription page is provided below.  To view the notices for this project visit our Public Notices page

Moving forward, you may have noticed that JB Enterprises has started moving equipment and materials into the Town to be stored at the locations approved by the Town. These locations include a municipally owned lot at the corner of Peel Street and Simcoe Street and two (2) additional parcels of land that are privately owned. 

If you have any questions regarding the Main Street Reconstruction Project, please do not hesitate to reach out to Town Staff to give Staff the opportunity to provide answers and address any concerns you may have.
