Millennium Trail Rest Areas

The Ad Hoc Millennium Trail Upgrade Committee is planning to construct five new rest areas along the trail. The rest areas are being patterned after the one in Wellington on West Street that has been in place for three years.

The new rest areas may include an information kiosk, a bicycle repair stand, a bicycle parking rack, a picnic table, a seasonal washroom, and, in most locations, a parking lot. Construction is slated to take place in the spring of 2020.

The committee hosted three meetings in December 2019 to get public feedback on the plans for the rest areas. The input will be taken into consideration when the plans are presented to Council for approval. 

For more information, contact the County of Prince Edward at 613.476.2148 extension 1023, 613.962.9108 extension 1023, or

Wellington Master Servicing Plan

The municipality is undertaking a master plan for water, sanitary, and stormwater services for the Wellington Urban Centre. The master plan will consider and evaluate alternatives and identify the preferred infrastructure upgrades for water treatment and distribution, sanitary treatment and collection, and stormwater management to accommodate immediate development and long-term growth opportunities to full ‘build out’ to the urban boundary, as per the Wellington Urban Centre Secondary Plan.

Project Status

This study is being completed in accordance with a ‘Schedule B’ Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA), as outlined by the Municipal Engineers Association. To date, the existing servicing needs have been reviewed and forecasted demands have been identified.

Alternative solutions will be analyzed and evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Technical and operational impacts
  • Financial impacts
  • Social impacts
  • Archaeological/cultural impacts
  • Natural environment impacts

Have Your Say: The municipality hosted a second public information centre (PIC) on Thursday, November 28 to provide more information about the process, review the needed improvements, evaluation and recommendation of the alternatives, and the next steps. 

View the panels that were on display at the PIC.

The project team is accepting comments and feedback on the panels until December 13, 2019. Download and fill out the ‌comment sheet.
