Town of Bracebridge - G8 Project Proposal for Annie Williams Park
On January 21, 2009 I wrote to you outlining a number of projects that the Town of Bracebridge could
undertake in association with the 2010 G8 Summit. One of the projects listed was the construction of a new
washroom and storage facility at Annie Williams Park (See Appendix "A" attached for original project details).
Recently, a proposal was submitted by Bruce Kruger, who happens to be the Bracebridge Town Crier, for the
construction of an open-air band shell in Annie Williams Park to serve as a focal point for musical and
theatrical performances and other cultural and community events. Details of Mr. Kruger's proposal are
attached as Appendix "B".
After discussions with Town staff, I believe that there is a unique opportunity to combine the Town's initial
proposal with the subsequent submission by Mr. Kruger lead'lng to the develop of a multi-functional structure at
Annie Williams park that could provide all of the suggested features. Attached as Appendix "C" is a location
map for Annie Williams Park. As you are aware, the park is centrally located and is the focal point for many
Town activities.
In essence, the Town believes that there is an opportunity to construct one structure that would provide the
washroom and storage facilities that are badly needed at the park. Additionally, we believe through some
innovative design work, there is an opportunity to construct a new covered outdoor performance stage. The
performing arts stage would serve as a gathering place for people and performances of all kinds, offering a
venue for small bands, a single musical performer or small theatre companies. This could create a significant
long lasting economic development benefit for the Town from a tourism and cultural perspective.
Although detailed information regarding Summit plans is not currently available, we believe that this proposal
can have a close linkage to the G8 event. Our initial estimate for construction of the washroom and storage
facility was $150,000. The addition of a new covered outdoor performance stage will undoubtedly increase
costs to the $500,000 to $600,000 range. Subject to your comments and feedback from appropriate Federal
staff, the Town would be willing to initiate the development of a more detailed proposal for the project.
We greatly appreciate the opportunity to submit this project for your consideration. As indicated previously, I
look forward to working closely with the members of the Local Area Leadership Group over the next two years.

An open-air Bandstand style stage and Sound Centre with proper lighting, etc.. The facility could be closed in
when not in use.
What a setting it could make, watching performances, or be the focal point for the Highland Games, the
Bracebridge Triathlon, the Kids' Theatre or other events.
Partners:
The Town of Bracebridge, Bracebridge Rotary Club; Lions Club of Bracebridge; Rotary Club of Bracebridge-
Muskoka Lakes (newest member) and possibly Muskoka Arts and Crafts Inc.
Legacy:
I suggest we name it after the G8 in some manner. It could also be utilized for special G8 entertainment or as
a gathering place for a segment of the G8 attendees for a special night or for a meeting and have large tents
set up in event of inclement weather.
Estimated Cost:
Between $500,000 to $1 ,000,000.
Time Frame:
If fast tracked, it could be completed by late this fall or early spring!
Expected Results:
Great public appreciation; the town would have an exceptional building for community oriented events, with
sufficient funding landscaping could be built into this project. This would put Bracebridge on the
Spring/Summer/Autumn scene for many tourist-oriented events to once again bring the multitudes to special
functions within our fantastic Town!

Town of Bracebridge - G8 Project Proposal for Annie Williams Park
Further to my April 8, 2009 memorandum, the Town of Bracebridge is pleased to provide some supplementary
information regarding the construction of a new washroom, storage facility and covered outdoor performance
stage at Annie Williams Park (See Appendix "A" attached for location map).
New Multi-function Structure:
The proposed building will have a gross roofed area of approximately 7,500 square feet including the following:
A covered 1,600 square foot stage area for holding outdoor community theater events and other entertainment
events that may require a larger outdoor venue. There will also be a stage wings area for the activities
necessary to support performances, including storage areas of approximately 2,800 square feet to be located
on 3 sides of the stage.
The building will also include a space of approximately 1,100 square feet to accommodate accessible public
washrooms. The washrooms will be available to park users during performance and during normal park
operating hours. The addition of the new washroom facilities will replace the existing washrooms, which are
well beyond their useful life.
A roofed picnic shelter area will be attached to the south and east side of the building and will be available for
public use. This area will be approximately 2,000 square feet in area.
A conceptual site plan is attached as Appendix "B". It is estimated that the cost of the building program will be
$350,000.00
Site Servicing Costs:
The following site Servicing will be necessary to support the proposed building:
An upgraded electrical service will be installed to provide sufficient power for the stage and washroom
operation.
Upgraded water supply and sewage pump and force main will be installed to the new location. The length of
this servicing will be in the range of 290 metres.
Because the events to be held at this venue will attract significantly more vehicles, it will be necessary to
upgrade the existing driveway in the park from one lane to a 2-lane wide asphalt driveway.
The stone entrance gate will also need to be replaced to accommodate the widening of the entrance driveway.
Attached is a more detailed cost estimate for the site servicing. It is estimated that the cost of this servicing will
be approximately $259,000.00.

14. Woodchester Villa Woodchester Villa was constructed in 1882 by
Henry Bird, the operator of the woolen mill on
the banks of the Muskoka River.
Woodchester is an octagonal house inspired
by Squire Orson Fowler style who made his
mark on the architectural heritage of North
America in promoting this design of building
as one that “was cheaper to build, allowed for
additional living space, received more natural
light, was easier to heat, and remained cooler
in the summer”
The property was purchased by the Rotary
Club of Bracebridge and restored between
1978 and 1980. In 1980 was opened as a
museum and its ownership turned over to the
Town of Bracebridge.
In addition to the Villa, the property purchased
also included the Chapel Gallery which is an
historic church constructed in 1886 which was
the first church recorded in Bracebridge’s
history.
Currently this historic gem is a hidden asset
as a result of many years of natural growth of
trees surrounding the area.

RECOMMENDATION
1. That the submission of the project funding requests listed in Appendix "A" to Staff Report A020-09
by the Town of Bracebridge, as community-wide initiatives that will support and enhance the G8
Summit, be endorsed.
2. That the Mayor and staff be authorized to submit applications to the Federal Government for

ORIGIN
3. On June 19, 2008, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the 2010 G8 Summit would be
held at the Deerhurst Resort in HuntSVille, Ontario.
4. The G8 Summit is an annual meeting attended by the leaders of the eight countries, namely,
Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States of
America, and the President of the European Commission. It will be the fifth G8 Summit hosted by
Canada since the country joined the prestigious international organization in 1976.
5. In announcing the Summit, the Prime Minister emphasized that it would be a tremendous
opportunity to promote Canada's values and interests on the world stage; to advocate for open
markets and free trade; to insist on truly global action against global warming; and to champion
freedom, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.
6. Prime Minister Harper noted that Huntsville, Muskoka and Parry Sound would benefit from the
significant economic activity associated with the Summit, noting the 2002 G8 Summit in
Kananaskis, Alberta generated an estimated $300 million for the regional economy. Prime
Minister Harper also added that the international media attending the Summit would introduce
millions of potential tourists to the many attractions of Ontario cottage country.
7. To help facilitate organizing for the Summit, a 2010 G8 Summit organizing structure has been put
in place as follows:

8. Although the Canadian government has yet to announce how much it expects to invest in hosting
the G-8 summit in 2010, it is anticipated that funds will be available to support a variety of projects
and initiatives that will serve to enhance the Summit.
9. On February 4, 2009, Town Council ratified motion 09-G-023 regarding the submission of
tourism-related projects as follows:
"That the projects listed in Appendix "A" to Staff Report A01 0-09 be approved for submission to
the 2010 G8 Summit Local Area Leadership Group and recommended for financial support as
district-wide projects that will support and enhance the G8 Summit and serve to promote tourism
development in Muskoka and surrounding areas."
10. This Staff Report has been prepared to seek formal Council endorsement of the submission of a
number of potentially G8-related projects specifically related to the Town of Bracebridge.
ANALYSIS
11. Since the announcement of the G8 Summit in June, groups and individuals have proposed a wide
variety of projects associated with the Summit.
12. As members of Council are aware, Mayor Coates, Deputy Mayor S. Clement, CAO John Sisson
have been attending all meetings of the G8 Summit Local Area Leadership Group to ensure that
the Town of Bracebridge is fully represented in local planning for the G8 event. Additionally, the
Mayor and staff have been able to stay in close contact with MP Tony Clement to discuss various
matters of importance to the Town. The Federal Government has established a $50 million fund
to support the G8 Summit in Muskoka.
13. The projects presented are items that have been discussed with members of Council previously
and reflect a broad variety of program and service areas. In summary, the Town requested
consideration of the following G-8 related projects:
1. Renovations to the Bracebridge Fire 2. Renovations to the Bracebridge Fire

from the Town's New Baseball Park
Complex Known as Peake Fields at
Verena Acres to Fraserburg Road.
14. Construction of a new Salt Dome for use
by the Public Works Department to
minimize environmental degradation.
14. Although detailed information regarding G8 Summit plans is not currently available, the Town's
submission shows projects that, we believe, have a close linkage to the G8 event.
15. The Town has communicated to Minister Clement our appreciation for the opportunity to submit
the projects for initial consideration and our appreciation for his on-going support for the Town of
Bracebridge. Additionally, Mayor Coates has confirmed his commitment to work closely with the
members of the Local Area Leadership Group over the next two years.
16. The Deputy Mayor and staff will be participating in the Local Area Leadership Group meeting to
be held on February 27, 2009 and the Muskoka Futures Symposium related to the G8 Summit
also to be held on the 27th.
17. The Mayor and staff will continue to report back to Council with future information as it become
available. Please contact me if you have any questions.
18. Although other projects may be presented to the Local Area leadership Group (LALG) at a later
date, it is felt that the projects listed in Appendix "A" requiring funding support will serve to
enhance the programs and facilities that will be available to support the 2010 G8 Summit.
19. The projects recommended generally support improved emergency response, cultural, and
tourism infrastructure in the Town.
LINKAGE TO COMMUNITY BASED STRATEGIC PLAN
20. Promotion of projects and initiatives that will enhance tourism and economic development in
Bracebridge and Muskoka is a priority within the following Community-based Strategic Plan
Objective:
iii A Vibrant, Prosperous and Economically Sustainable Community
21. As noted above, initiatives to enhance tourism in Bracebridge and Muskoka will help to create
strong tourism-based businesses.
ALTERNATIVE(S)
22. The following alternative is available for Committee consideration:
Alternative #1
EXISTING POLICY
The Committee could receive Staff Report A020-09 for information
and not recommend the projects for submission to the LALG.
This course of action is not recommended, as it is not consistent
with the Town's Community-based Strategic Plan and the
Community Adjustment Plan.
23. The submission of these projects for consideration by Bracebridge Council is consistent with the
procedure established by the Local Area Leadership Group.

FROM:
DATE:
SUBJECT:
Mayor D. Coates and Members of Town Council
C. Kelley, Director of Economic Development
January 26, 2010
Gateway Signage Project
Further to discussions at General Committee with respect to the design of the Town's new gateway
signage, the project team (including staff, contractor and contractor's designer) has considered several
sign sizes in conjunction with the actual site and the Town's corporate image (logo) and graphic
standards (logo standards).
It has been determined by the team that use of the Town's logo in a horizontal lay-out is unfeasible for
this purpose. After scaling the logo appropriately, the length of the rock/stone/sign required would exceed
the limits set by MTO (i.e. a 20 foot wide rock).
Following a site visit with the contractors and MTO, staff are proceeding with installation of the sign as
follows:
1. The sign will be constructed as part of a single rock as per the proposal submitted by Graphic
Encounters in November;
2. The sign site be finished using appropriate landscaping as approved by MTO permit;
3. The "vertical" version of the logo be used;
4. That the vertical version of the logo be adjusted to reduce the size of the bridge/falls and increase
the size of BRACEBRIDGE to 14" in height and "The Heart of Muskoka" to a height of 10.5" (see
Appendix "A").
5. After a review of scientific literature on the topic of viewing times and highway signage
specifications, it has been determined that the Town's sign should be legible from 700 feet for a
period of 7 seconds (i.e. travelling at 100 km/per hour).
6. The next steps in the process are:
a. Finalize the MTO approval for location #2 and the new permit for location #1. The sign
design for both locations will be identical.
b. An initial permit application for the sign at location #2 has been submitted to the Ministry
of Transportation. It is proposed that Location #2 is approximately 1.4 miles south of
Alpine Ranch Road on the southbound lane of Highway 11. First revisions to the permit
application are underway based on comments back from MTO.
c. The selection of the rocks for both sites is underway. The rocks are being sourced from
Muskoka quarries.

d. Once the rocks for the signs have been selected, the brushed aluminum lettering will be

the lettering in accordance with graphic standards (i.e. full colour, one tone of blue or
black). For this use, the option of using natural brushed aluminum for the lettering is
being considered.
Although difficult winter conditions in December presented some challenges for staff and the sign
contractor, staff are confident that, with rapid permit approvals, we will be able to meet the installation
target date of March 31 st established for the project.
If you have additional comments or concerns please let me know by the end of January. We are in the
process of completing revisions to our MTO applications.

Gateway Signage Project
Below is an update of the Gateway Sign Project that will progress quickly over the coming weeks.
The sign permits (both locations) from the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) were issued on March
9
th
The Contractors' Traffic Control Plan was a p ~ r o v e d by MTO on March 19
th
Additionally, as a result
of a new MTO requirement for 2010, on March 24 h, District Public Works Committee passed a resolulion
supporting our application.
The existing Gateway Sign at Highway 11 and Highway 118 was removed on March 30 and is currently at
the Town Hall. The bottom half will be scrapped immediately as it was damaged during that process (I.e.
it was mounted on plywood).
Graphic Encounters, along with their landscape team located two feature granile stones in mid-March
once the snow had melted enough to look at the supply in Muskoka quarries. Last week, we visited the
quarry and based on my approval the Contractors secured two feature granile stones that will act the
anchor for the Town's graphic image. These stones will be picked up after the quarry opens on April1,t
A photograph of the "anchor rocks" is included below. Some preparation is required prior to selling (I.e.
the uneven portion of the rock on the right) and once the anchor rocks are set they will be sandblasted to
bring out the pink and black highlights.

The southbound site will require some significant site preparation including the building of a gravel base
appropriate drainage and a location "build up" using landscape rocks for which to mount the anchor sign
stone. It is expected that the southbound site will require less site preparation, however, the goal of the
project Is to produce two "identical" (or as close to identical as possible) entrances to the community.

MEMORANDUM
Director of Economic Development
• Location 1 (northbound) - anchor rock in place by April 7/8
• Location #2 (southbound) - site preparation beginning week of April 7'h; anchor rock in place by
17'h
• Logo/sign mounted on rock by April 23'"
• Landscaping, lighting completed, and planting by April 30
th
The logo application has not yet been confirmed. Once the anchor rock is in place, staff will work directly
with the Contractor to maximize the space to ensure that "BRACEBRIDGE" and "The Heart of Muskoka"
are clearly visible to highway travelers.
The landscaping plan was revised (from the original proposal) in order to comply with MTO, maximum
size requirements. (i.e. size of planting bed plus anchor rock was required to meet the maximum size of 3
m high X 6 m wide). This will require a review of the original landscaping, specifically plant materials
listing which is expected to be available next week.
With respect to the funding requirements, staff met with Federal staff monitoring the G8 projects last
week. Discussions focused on challenges with completing the project over the fall and winter season and
Town Staff provided an overview of completion schedule that will be well in advance of the G8. Staff is
targeting total completion by end of April that will include the landscaping and plantings, provided that the
weather continues to cooperate.
If you need additional information, please contact me.

ORIGIN
5. In 2003/04, the Town of Bracebridge explored the creation of a "gateway sign" at an MTO
(Ministry of Transportation) approved location on the Town's southerly boundary. The process
was challenged because of a lack of clear policy with respect to the brand image that the Town
was trying to portray.
6. In 2004, the Town underwent a process to establish a new graphic image to represent the Town
under the tagline, "The Heart of Muskoka".
7. Midway through the branding process, a sign was approved and installed including
electrical/lighting at the approved MTO location on the southerly boundary. Additionally, a plan
for landscaping was developed and implemented.

7. The major components will proceed utilizing the low bidder in each area. Other project
components such as street light standards, waste receptacles and park benches will be in
keeping with the existing structures so as to maintain consistency and aesthetics. These items
will be purchased from an existing supplier.
8. Electrical work for traffic lights will be undertaken by Dawson Incorporated as required by the
District Municipality of Muskoka.
9. Staff in the Public Works Department have met with the various contractors to determine the most
efficient and effective methods to undertake the proposed work. Additionally, staff has received
comments from several downtown BIA business members who have voiced concerns that
undertaking the work during business hours may have a detrimental effect on commercial
operations. As a result, and in recognition of the business concerns received, staff recommend
that the majority of disruptive work be undertaken outside of normal business hours as much as
feasible. Accordingly staff are proposing a schedule whereby work would be undertaken between
the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. By undertaking the work during this time, staff believe this
work can be completed in a shorter time frame, thereby minimizing the overall impact of the entire
project on the downtown.
10. Providing the Municipal Clerk with authority to grant exemptions to the Noise Control By-law
throughout the month of November until 12:00 a.m. will enable the contractors to complete the
necessary road works with as minimal disruption possible to the daytime traffic flow in downtown
Bracebridge.

Sportsplex Electrical Distribution Modifications Tender Results
RECOMMENDATION
1. That the contract for the electrical distribution modifications project at the Bracebridge Sportsplex
be awarded to the low bidder, Dawson's Incorporated at an up-set cost of $31,393.00, excluding
GST, in accordance with their tender dated September 24, 2009.
2. That the cost of this contract be allocated to the Cuiture and Recreation Department Capital
Account 0061.56111.
ORIGIN
3. During the design phase for the Sportsplex the District of Muskoka EMC identified that they would
like to have the Sportsplex as an emergency operations and evacuation centre. Due to this
request, an emergency generator was designed into the project.
4. During power interruptions a 500 kilowatt generator provides power to areas of the Sportsplex
and high school deemed to be necessary for an emergency operations and evacuation centre.
The lack of emergency power to provide heat was identified as an issue shortly after occupancy
of the Sportsplex. After numerous discussions with parties involved it was determined to have
been an oversight in design. This oversight was rectified in the high school during construction
so heat was designed in and is available in select locations in the school side of the facility.
5. On April 14, 2009, The Honourable Tony Clement, Minister of Industry, made a funding
announcement in support of the G8 Summit scheduled for Muskoka in 2010. Part of this
announcement was to provide $40,000 to upgrade the Bracebridge Sportsplex Emergency power
backup system.
6. Notice was provided in the local newspaper advertising the Sportsplex electrical distribution
modifications tender on August 26, 2009. Notice of the tender was also included on the Town of
Bracebridge's website.
7. The tender documents were prepared by MCW Consultants Ltd. and the Town of Bracebridge
and were available for distribution on August 26, 2009.
8. A site meeting was held for interested contractors at the Bracebridge Sportsplex on September 9,
2009 at 11 :00 am; Dave Dunbar, Manager Construction Services from MCW Consultants Ltd.,
the Director of Culture and Recreation and the Facility Manager (Sportsplex) provided a tour and
outlined the specifications of the project and answered questions.
9. The electrical distribution modifications were approved in the 2009 capital budget and were
estimated to not exceed $34,000.

West Parry Sound G8 Summit Committee
November 7
'
'', 2008
A West Parry Sound G8 Summit Committee has been established. In addition to providing support for the 201 0
G8 Summit in Huntsville, the Committee will also be responsible for pursuing area 'legacy' opportunities
prescnted by the event. Please see Appendix A for details regarding the Committee's structure; membership and
proposed working group initiatives.
The West Parry Sound G8 Summit Committee and area partners believe that the following hard and soft
infrastructure developments are necessary to provide the greatest possible level of support to the 2010 G8
Summit. The identified initiatives are aligned with the area or governing body's strategic direction for the short
and long term. Assuming that adequate resourees are made available, the initiatives would be completed early
in order to meet the 2010 G8 Summit demands. Please note that although the cost figures presented were
calculated from the most CUlTen! and accurate infonnation available, they are informed estimates only.
1. Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport: The Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport Commission has provided
a report detailing the developments and associated costs necessary for the airport to (Option One) continue
current service and growth levels, andlor (Option 2) operate in a capacity needed to serve the anticipated 2010
G8 Summit demands. Summary figures are as follows. (Please see Appendix B).

TOTAL Estimatcd Costs 4,000,000 10,000,000
2, West Parry Sound Broadband and Cellular Infrastructure: West Parry Sound bas a partial wireless
broadband network available. Scott Mannering, Project Manager for Blue Sky Net, advises that completing this
network would be the most efficient and cost effective method to support the broadband needs of the 2010 G8
Summit. In doing so, broadband service 'to the last mile' would be provided to the entire area, inclusive of the
41 % of aforementioned accommodations which do not currently have high speed internet service. Estimated
project costs are as follows:
To avoul wmk duplIcation, efforts will be made to Jure personnel thl ollgn the area Commumty Based Network (eBN).

Doug Sainsbury - Chairman Airport Commission
October 30, 2008
G8 Summit - Huntsville - 2010
In the Fall of 2007 the Airport Commission, together with the stakeholders at the airport, put together a
strategic plan. The plan outlined a number of goals and strategic actions that were required to ensure the
corltinued success of this regional asset. With the G8 Summit cOming to Huntsville in a couple of years a
number of the initiatives need to be addressed in the near future in order for the Airport to make a significant
contribution to the success of this event.
Both options call for the re-establishment of CAN PASS that was taken away after 9-11. We feel this will be
essential to service the traffic into the airport during the G8 summit.
Option 1: This option details the items the airport needs to find funding for over the next two to three years in
order for it to maintain its current level of service and year to year growth. This option inclUdes resurfacing the
eXisting runway, enlarging apron & taxiways, installing an electrical generator and renovating the terminal
building.
Option 2: This option increases the width and length of the runway to accommodate small jets and provides for -
• fuelling station for them. A small addition would be put onto the terminal building that would include a
wheelchair accessible washroom (there is no room to make the current washrooms in the terminal wheelchair
accessible) and a car rental/taxi office, A second septic bed would be added together with a fire hydrant
inclUding necessary piping to draw water from Roberts Lake.

WPSHC has developed an extremely high level of responsiveness when faced with
emergency situations and challenges that can potentially be brought forth by external
forces.
.. . .Over. the past ..eighteen(18).months the Emergency Response Plan· Committee . has
conducted six (6) mock disaster exercises and had to respond to one (l) actual bomb
threat. The average institution will normally hold one (l) mock disaster training exercise
per year. WPSHC has greatly exceeded that average. In order to respond effectively and
meet the challenges associated with the upcoming G8 Summit, WPSHC along with
regional partners are prepared to extend responsibility and capacity to meet G8
emergency health care needs with financial assistance from the Federal Government.
Objectives:
a. To protect the essential infrastructure and safe guard community health centre
response and maintain WPSHC business continuity in the face of external threats.
b. To lift community information communication technology broadband by
developing ICTinfTastructure at WPSHC in collaboration with the Town of Parry
Sound and its Fire Hall site.
c. To harden the infrastructure of31 Municipal Emergency Operation Centres, 7
First Nation Centres and 6 Nursing Stations based on the health centres hub site
status and outreach.
d. To offer a strong second line ofdefense when direct community facilities are
potentially over whelmed.
e. To provide the latest medical assessment technology including (CT Scanner,
PACS, EHR, LIS), thus avoiding travel time delay (access for everyone)

• The establishment of funding criteria complemented by a clear proposal review
process,
• The FedNor Report will be completed no later than March 30, 2009,
Mr, Dodds further noted that he Is interested in obtaining ideas on the criteria that the
Members may have,
Question
Mayor Klinck asked if ideas were being driven from the bottom up and that he had
concerns as to what the top down initiatives are; where the Federal Government is
positioning themselves; what the role is of the municipalities; and If there would be a
time to discuss a sense of where everything is to be located,
Answer
Minister Clement noted that they do not yet have all the answers and they are
waiting on the finalization of the security framework in which everything will then
flow from,
Question
Mayor Pryke asked if the process will be completed by March 30

,
Question
John Winters, Superintendent, AlgonqUin Provincial Park, asked If there would be a
close off date for receipt of the submissions,
Answer
Mr. Dodds noted that a deadline has yet to be determined,
A discussion took place regarding the possibility of a Tourism Sub-Committee which
would include representatives from all levels of government.
M'lnister Clement noted that the current LALG Committee is our municipal representative
and that FedNor will be involVing other levels as well.
Question
Mayor Walden asked if the process was separate from the Building Canada Fund and
if projects could be submitted to both funds.
Answer
Minister Clement noted that the Building Canada Fund is for capital projects and that
the LALG submitted projects are not really considered "capital" projects; however, if
It is specifically related to the G8 Summit for the Infrastructure Fund, then yes, they
are two different Funds.
Minister Clement noted that he believed some of the current LALG submissions would be
for potential Infrastructure Funds; however, if the submission was reviewed and it did
not, FedNor will suggest other funding avenues.
Mr. Dodds noted that the process would include the objective to see what projects fit and
what other sources of funding are available.
2010 G8 Summit Local Area Leadership Group Meeting Minutes - February 27, 2009 - 5 -
Mayor Klinck - Gravenhurst:
Mayor Klinck noted the following:
• That he would like the Members to have the opportunity to speak with Gerald
Cossette, Summit Manager, regarding assets that Municipality's have and further,
the he hopes that assumptions have not been made (i,e, that they do not want to
be near a protest centre);
• That he appreciated the tourism and legacy perspectives but that he believed the
Members should consider how the G8 Summit contributes to the quality of life of the
ratepayers, as well as long term for those in the tourism business and not just for
the individuals passing through;
• That criteria should also involve creative international possibilities (I.e, Chinese -
Gravenhurst - Bethune House),
Mayor Doughty - Huntsville:

SCHEDULE B - THE PROJECT
2009·2010
B.1 PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Bracebridge Sportsplex Emergency Backup
The Bracebridge Sportsplex is recognized as a key Town facility. It is designed as an
evacuation centre for emergency purposes under the Town's and the District's Emergency
Plans. The Sportsplex also serves as the Town's alternate Emergency Operations Centre
(EOC) in the event of a major emergency. This project will retrofit the Sportsplex electrical
system to provide backup power from a generator for the entire facility to ensure the
provision of heat and electricity to the entire building in the event of a power disruption.
Gateway Signage
New 'Gateway Signage' will be installed on Highway 11 at the northern and southern Town
borders. The new signage will comply with current branding for the Town, and District, as
well as including any 2010 G8 Summit branding, as a legacy project.
Annie Williams Park Upgrades
In an effort to support significant long lasting economic benefits for the Town, from a tourism
and cultural perspective, the Annie Williams Park upgrades will include the construction of a
new covered outdoor performance stage. Annie Williams Park is a central park located in
the urban core of the Town. It is located along the Muskoka River. The Park is a central
destination point for visitors to the area. Currently there are no accessible washrooms or
storage facilities in the park. As such, this project will also incorporate public washroom and
storage facilities in the design.
Revitalization of Downtown
The Bracebridge Downtown Revitalization component will address road improvements in
the downtown core of the Town. The project intends to plane and pave Manitoba Street
between Kimberley and Ontario Streets; and, plane and pave Taylor Road from Manitoba
Street to the bridge. The roadwork is to also include portions of interlock/brick. The project
will also include additional beautification elements that were part of the Town's
2005 Streetscape Enhancement project, including light fixtures, traffic light poles and arms,
banners, and street furniture such as benches and garbage receptacles.

the designated representatives of Canada and the Recipient.
Public events will be held at the request of one or more Parties. In order to meet the Parties' head
office requirements, a minimum of twenty-one (21) days' notice should be given for such an event.

should participate in the events, which should take place on a date and at a location agreed to by
the Parties. All public events require the prior consent by Canada.
Canada and the Recipient will cooperate in organizing media conferences, announcements and
official ceremonies. The Table of Precedence for Canada, as established by Canadian Heritage
(http://www.pch.gc.ca/pgm/ceem-cced/prtcl/precedence-eng.cfm) or some other mutually
acceptable protocol should be respected. Canada and the Recipient have to agree on public
statements and messages issued at events.
The City may produce information kits, brochures, public reports and Internet pages providing
information on the Project and Agreement for private-sector interest groups, contractors and
members of the public. The Recipient will consult with Canada in preparing the content and look of
all such material.
All other communications activities related to a Project should be in compliance with this guideline.

SUBJECT:
Mayor D. Coates and Members of Town Council
J. Sisson, Chief Administrative Officer
G8 - Community Project Application Endorsement
RECOMMENDATION
1. That the submission of the project funding requests listed in Appendix "A" to Staff Report A020-09
by the Town of Bracebridge, as community-wide initiatives that will support and enhance the G8
Summit, be endorsed.
2. That the Mayor and staff be authorized to submit applications to the Federal Government for
additional community projects that will support and enhance the G8 Summit and that any such
application be reported to Town Council.
ORIGIN
3. On June 19, 2008, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the 2010 G8 Summit would be
held at the Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario.
4. The G8 Summit is an annual meeting attended by the leaders of the eight countries, namely,
Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States of
America, and the President of the European Commission. It will be the fifth G8 Summit hosted by
Canada since the country joined the prestigious international organization in 1976.
5. In announcing the Summit, the Prime Minister emphasized that it would be a tremendous
opportunity to promote Canada's values and interests on the world stage; to advocate for open
markets and free trade; to insist on truly global action against global warming; and to champion
freedom, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.
6. Prime Minister Harper noted that Huntsville, Muskoka and Parry Sound would benefit from the
significant economic activity associated with the Summit, noting the 2002 G8 Summit in
Kananaskis, Alberta generated an estimated $300 million for the regional economy. Prime
Minister Harper also added that the international media attending the Summit would introduce
millions of potential tourists to the many attractions of Ontario cottage country.
7. To help facilitate organizing for the Summit, a 2010 G8 Summit organizing structure has been put
in place as follows:
Federal Summit Management Office
Gerald Cossette, Summit Manager
Liaison and Implementation Team
Minister Clement, Mayor Huntsville, GM Deerhurst
Local Area Leadership Group
District Chair, Muskoka Mayors, Parry Sound Mayor, Grand Council

8. Although the Canadian government has yet to announce how much it expects to invest in hosting
the G-8 summit in 2010, it is anticipated that funds will be available to support a variety of projects
and initiatives that will serve to enhance the Summit.
9. On February 4, 2009, Town Council ratified motion 09-G-023 regarding the submission of
tourism-related projects as follows:
"That the projects listed in Appendix "A" to Staff Report A010-09 be approved for submission to
the 2010 G8 Summit Local Area Leadership Group and recommended for financial support as
district-wide projects that will support and enhance the G8 Summit and serve to promote tourism
development in Muskoka and surrounding areas."
10. This Staff Report has been prepared to seek formal Council endorsement of the submission of a
number of potentially G8-related projects specifically related to the Town of Bracebridge.
ANALYSIS
11. Since the announcement of the G8 Summit in June, groups and individuals have proposed a wide
variety of projects associated with the Summit.
12. As members of Council are aware, Mayor Coates, Deputy Mayor S. Ciement, CAO John Sisson
have been attending all meetings of the G8 Summit Local Area Leadership Group to ensure that
the Town of Bracebridge is fully represented in local planning for the G8 event. Additionally, the
Mayor and staff have been able to stay in close contact with MP Tony Clement to discuss various
matters of importance to the Town. The Federal Government has established a $50 million fund
to support the G8 Summit in Muskoka.
13. The projects presented are items that have been discussed with members of Council previously
and reflect a broad variety of program and service areas. In summary, the Town requested
consideration of the following G-8 related projects:
1. Renovations to the Bracebridge Fire 2. Renovations to the Bracebridge Fire

from the Town's New Baseball Park
Complex Known as Peake Fields at
Verena Acres to Fraserburg Road.
14. Construction of a new Salt Dome for use
by the Public Works Department to
minimize environmental degradation.
14. Although detailed information regarding G8 Summit plans is not currently available, the Town's
submission shows projects that, we believe, have a close linkage to the G8 event.
15. The Town has communicated to Minister Clement our appreciation for the opportunity to submit
the projects for initial consideration and our appreciation for his on-going support for the Town of
Bracebridge. Additionally, Mayor Coates has confirmed his commitment to work closely with the
members of the Local Area Leadership Group over the next two years.
16. The Deputy Mayor and staff will be participating in the Local Area Leadership Group meeting to
be held on February 27, 2009 and the Muskoka Futures Symposium related to the G8 Summit
also to be held on the 27th.
17. The Mayor and staff will continue to report back to Council with future information as it become
available. Please contact me if you have any questions.
18. Although other projects may be presented to the Local Area leadership Group (LALG) at a later
date, it is felt that the projects listed in Appendix "A" requiring funding support will serve to
enhance the programs and facilities that will be available to support the 2010 G8 Summit.
19. The projects recommended generally support improved emergency response, cultural, and
tourism infrastructure in the Town.
LINKAGE TO COMMUNITY BASED STRATEGIC PLAN

Dear Mayor Coates:
On behalf ofMinister Clement, thank you for submitting a 2010 G8 Summit
project proposal for the Fire Station #1 Renovations.
The response to the Minister's call for G-8 project proposals has been
remarkable. As of May 30, 2009, we have received over 232 proposals, totalling more
than $254 million, far exceeding our expectations. Unfortunately, budget limitations,
funding requirements and competing priorities restrict our ability to fund all of these local
G8 related initiatives.
The Minister's staff and department officials have reviewed all proposals
received in accordance with the above considerations. We have determined that the focus
and priority offederal support for community based, G8 Summit-related projects will
include promotional activities for the area, infrastructure and legacy projects. Projects
supported under the $50 million, G8 Infrastructure and Legacy Fund have been or will be
announced shortly.

. Dear Coates:
On behalf on Minister Clement, thank you for submitting a 2010 G8
Summit project proposal for the Downtown Banners.
The response to the Minister's call for G-8 project proposals has been
remarkable. As of May 30, 2009, we have received over 232 proposals, totalling more
than $254 million, far exceeding our expectations. Unfortunately, budget limitations,
funding requirements and competing priorities restrict our ability to fund all of these local
G8-related initiatives. Consequently, we have detennined that the focus and priority of
federal support for community based, G8 Summit-related projects will include
promotional activities for the area, infrastructure and legacy projects.
The department has reviewed all proposals received in accordance with the
above considerations. Projects supported under the G8 Infrastructure and Legacy Fund
have been or will be announced shortly.
Unfortunately, I regret that we will be unable to support your proposal
under the G8 Infrastructure and Legacy Fund. However, I encourage you to visit
FedNor.'s website to determine whether your project meets its program criteria and/or
speak with either ofthe FedNor officers listed below regarding consideration ofyour
proposal.

Dear Mayor Coates:
On behalf on Minister Clement, thank you for submitting a 2010 G8
Summit project proposal for the Memorial Park Bandshell Renovations.
The response to the Minister's call for G-8 project proposals has been
remarkable. As ofMay 30, 2009, we have received over 232 proposals, totalling more
than $254 million, far exceeding our expectations. Unfortunately, budget limitations,
funding requirements and competing priorities restrict our ability to fund all of these local
G8-related initiatives. Consequently, we have determined that the focus and priority of
federal support for community based, G8 Summit-related projects will include
promotional activities for the area, infrastructure and legacy projects.
The department has reviewed all proposals received in accordance with the
above considerations. Projects supported under the G8 Infrastructure and Legacy Fund
have been or will be announced shortly.
Unfortunately, 1 regret that we will be unable to support your proposal
under the G8 Infrastructure and Legacy Fund. However, I encourage you to visit
FedNor's website to determine whether your project meets its program criteria and/or
speak with either of the FedNor officers listed below regarding consideration of your
proposal.
