Burning Restrictions in Effect Until Further Notice 

Extreme temperatures, a lack of precipitation and the long range weather forecast is prompting The Town of South Bruce Peninsula to issue burning restrictions within all areas of the Town. 

The hot, dry conditions we are experiencing allow fires to spread faster than normal and can result in very dangerous situations developing. 

As a result of the current situation, only Recreational Open Air Burning will be permitted. Recreational Fires must be contained within a non-combustible burning device with a burn area of no larger than 2 feet X 2 feet X 2 feet. For additional information on Recreational Open Air Burning please visit our website at www.southbrucepeninsula.com 

We encourage all persons to exercise extreme caution when conducting a recreational open air burn. 

We will continue to monitor the effects of the weather and issue updates as necessary. 

Thank-you for your anticipated co-operation. 

For more information please contact Chief Robinson at 519-534-1400 extension 142.

For Immediate Release

Town of South Bruce Peninsula Congratulates Michael Humble on New Opportunity

It is with mixed emotions that the Town of South Bruce Peninsula announces the departure of Michael Humble from the role of Manager of Financial Services/Treasurer. Mr. Humble has served the residents of South Bruce Peninsula (SBP) for over three years and his dedication and commitment to the municipality and our Town hall team has served our community well.

Although sad to see Mr. Humble depart SBP, the entire Council would like to congratulate him on his new role with the Municipality of Elliot Lake and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. In discussions leading up to Mr. Humble's departure it was clear this move was driven by what was best for his family and for that we applaud him.

Council is moving quickly to begin the search for a new Manager of Financial Services/Treasurer and has made interim arrangements to ensure a smooth transition and continuity in the Finance Department.

Welcome to the Wiarton Downtown Streetscape Design Project -Imagine the Possibilities!

The Town is very excited to be starting a streetscape design project.  This project is partially funded through a government downtown revitalization grant and partially through the Town budget and will build upon the great work that has been done as part of our downtown improvements. The Town has retained Basterfield & Associates to lead the design process with input from the Wiarton Streetscape Ad Hoc Committee, chaired by downtown business owner, Carl DeJong.

The focus of the streetscape design will include the public spaces along Berford Street between Frank Street and Division Street and along William Street between Berford Street and Brown Street.

The main goals of the design process include:    

  • Engage community participation in the design process
  • Create a streetscape plan that is achievable, affordable and   sustainable
  • Include design features that support the "basecamp" branding theme, where appropriate
  • Create a visually attractive, functional and welcoming streetscape design and infrastructure
  • Designing a streetscape that helps to create an exciting year round destination for visitors, businesses and residents

The Streetscape Plan design options will consider important features such as accessibility, sidewalks, parking areas, vehicular and cycling access,  lighting, street furnishings, signage, vegetation, interpretive displays, pubic art/attractions, parkettes, walkways, crosswalks, patio areas, display areas, 'bump outs' and curb appeal.
