    Did you know?

    You have options for driveway reinstatement:

    1. Leave it as it has been designed (i.e. restoration of disturbed sections up to the lot line (or beyond) but only if needed).
    2. Solicit the project's General Contractor (if they are willing) to have your entire driveway repaved (you would only have to pay for the portion that is beyond what the Town will be repaving as part of the project).
    3. Opt out of having your driveway paved by the project's General Contractor and make your own arrangements to have your entire driveway paved.  In this case, the Town would reimburse you for our portion of the driveway at the project's contract price.

    Please call or email James Black if you have any questions regarding driveway paving.

    Construction Liaison Committee

    The Town of Newmarket is committed to engaging its citizens in the delivery of Town services. We need your help! Please consider joining the Patterson Street Construction Liaison Committee as a resident representative.

    Two years ago, the Town initiated a program to have residents participate in meetings between the Town, Consultant and Contractor by representing their neighbourhood and providing feedback on the construction activities that are taking place. 

    We are seeking volunteers in your neighbourhood. The ‘Construction Liaison Committee’ is a volunteer program comprised of up to three residents who live within the project limits. There are no responsibilities of the Committee Members other than attending meetings, speaking up for their neighbours, sharing information, and providing feedback. Some examples of issues discussed include the scheduling of construction activities and general construction information.  

    Although meetings are scheduled every two weeks at the construction site office, we ask that the Committee Member(s) be able to attend at least one meeting per month. The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 25 at 8:45 a.m. Meetings will be held every two weeks, until the work has been completed.  If these hours are not suitable, we will try to accommodate a time that works for the Committee

    If you are interested in being a part of the Committee, please contact James Black, Project Manager, Town of Newmarket at 905-953-5300, ext. 2504 or email jblack@newmarket.ca

    Construction Corner

    Project Updates: Issue 1

    As a resident of / business owner on Patterson Street, you will be receiving regular ‘Construction Corner’ notices from the Town of Newmarket to keep you updated on the watermain replacement project in your area. 

    Over the next two weeks:

    • You may see representatives from OZA Inspection Ltd. visiting your neighbourhood to complete a pre-construction condition survey of existing buildings and homes prior to the start of construction. Representatives from OZA may contact you with a request to gain access to your property for the purpose of carrying out the survey. The Town recommends that you allow OZA access to your property so that a record of your home’s condition can be made before the construction starts. This can help you in the unlikely event that a claim for damages might arise.

    • Utility companies will be relocating pedestals, as well as completing ‘locates’.

    • Workers may be cutting asphalt and sidewalks using special saws.

    We expect all major construction activities to be completed by the winter 2019.

    We value your feedback on these updates. Please contact us at 905-895-5193 to provide your thoughts.

    Notice of Public Information Centre (PIC) 

    Drop in Format 6 to 8pm

    Wednesday January 30, 2019

    The Town of Newmarket is asking residents to get involved and participate in a Public Information Centre (PIC) for “Patterson Street Watermain Replacement” on Wednesday January 30, 2019, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Town Office (395 Mulock Drive) in Cane Room ‘A’ and ‘B’. The purpose of this PIC is to present the final design of the work prior to sending it out for tender. The format of the PIC will be an open house and residents are invited to drop by anytime.

    The PIC will include the project drawings and specifications.  Representatives from the Town’s Engineering Services and the consulting engineers on the project (Ainley Group) will be available to answer any inquiries you may have.

    The proposed works for the project will be to replace the existing watermain and water services to the property line, replace all curb and sidewalks, install a new sidewalk on the west side of Patterson Street between Red Deer Street and Elgin Street and resurface the road.

    The work is expected to start in May of 2019, depending on successful tender and contract execution. The majority of the work should be completed by late fall of 2019, weather permitting, and the new asphalt surface placed in the late spring/early summer of 2020.

    If you are unable to attend the PIC, and have any inquiries regarding this project, please contact James Black, Capital Projects Manager, at 905-953-5300 ext. 2504, or by email at jblack@newmarket.ca.


    Notice of Public Consultation Centre (PCC)

    September 18, 2018 

    Presentation starts at 6:15p.m.

    The Town of Newmarket is asking residents to Get Involved and participate in a Public Consultation Centre (PCC) for the Patterson Street Watermain Replacement on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Municipal Offices (395 Mulock Drive) in the Council Chambers. The PCC will include a presentation for the proposed works that will occur in this project. The work includes the replacement of the watermain and water services to the property line.  The purpose of the PCC is to discuss the project with residents and solicit any feedback or concerns you may have before we start designing the project. The PCC is a new process that the Town has implemented this year to get feedback from residents before starting to design the work, rather than waiting to hear from you after the design is doen.

    The itinerary for the PCC  is:
    6 p.m. – Opening
    6:15 p.m. – Presentation
    6:30 p.m. – Questions and answers
    7:15 p.m. – Adjournment

    The presentation will describe the project limits and the scope of work. Drawings will not be ready before the presentation, but a map of the street will be available during the presentation. A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be scheduled at a later date and will feature detailed drawings for the project. You will have a second opportunity to comment at the future PIC.

    The work is expected to start in the spring of 2019, depending on budgets, priorities and a successful tendering and contract execution process. The work should be completed by late fall of 2019, weather permitting

    Representatives from the Town’s Engineering Services and the consulting engineers on the project (Ainley Group) will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you are unable to attend the PCC, and have any concerns regarding this project, please contact James Black, Capital Projects Manager, at 905-953-5300 ext. 2504, or by email at jblack@newmarket.ca.
