Medway Valley Heritage Forest ESA
The Metamora Staircase in the Medway Valley Heritage Forest Environmentally Significant Area (ESA) has reached its end of life. (Funding for its construction was a ratepayer project in the 90s). The City has formed a Trails Focus Group (TFG). Sandy Levin is participating in the group as part of our Adopt An ESA group. At the second TFG meeting in February City Staff will bring the staircase forward for discussion including any issues around funding, and the sensitivity of the slope and the natural features of the area. City staff and Upper Thames River Conservation Authority staff (who manage the Forest under contract with the City), will make a site visit this month and post some signs for a temporary trail closure at this location. Councillor Squire is aware of this issue.
