to healthy living in the jewel of the Kawarthas!
Fenelon Trails is a proposed healthy lifestyle community in the charming Village of Fenelon Falls, aptly named “The Jewel of the Kawarthas” and one of Ontario’s premier recreation and retirement destinations.
Residents of the Fenelon Trails community will enjoy a year-round outdoor playground, close to Lock 34 of the Trent-Severn Waterway that connects Cameron Lake and Sturgeon Lake, and to the many cultural attractions and events of Fenelon Falls.
The property is truly magnificent!
Within the expansive 202 hectare (500 acre) lands are stunning Sturgeon Lake viewscapes, sheltered wetland and woodland areas, and open meadows. The wildlife habitat even includes a beaver pond!
Development of the lands to their full potential awaited the creation of an Official Plan for the City of Kawartha Lakes. The new Official Plan, adopted in 2010, contains policies to guide development while conserving resources and protecting the environment. The Official Plan was approved by the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing on January 17, 2012.
Since the existing Official Plan for Fenelon Falls was out of date with the new city-wide Official Plan, it was necessary to create a Secondary Plan to guide the long-term growth planned for Fenelon Falls. The goal is to ensure that Fenelon Falls would continue to be a great place to live, work, and play.
The Secondary Plan has not yet been adopted by Council, but we expect that when it is, it will expand the urban boundary of Fenelon Falls to embrace a large portion of the Fenelon Trails property.
The eventual adoption of the Secondary Plan will be a very positive outcome for the Village of Fenelon Falls. It will also make it possible for us to begin to more accurately visualize what the Fenelon Trails neighborhoods might look like.
