Mill of Kintail Museum

The collections of the R. Tait McKenzie and James Naismith Museum at the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area do not meet the core mandate of CAs and will likely no longer qualify for Municipal Levy funding when new regulations take effect, expected in 2021.  A Special Advisory Committee, consisting of representatives from the museum, municipal, nonprofit and community organization sectors, was tasked by the Board in fall 2019 to review, comment and advise on options with respect to the future of the Museum.

Watershed Plan

The goal of the Mississippi River Watershed Plan is to examine long term stressors affecting the natural resources of the watershed, provide a forum for government and the public to articulate a vision for the desired state of those resources and develop a collaborative action plan to achieve that vision.

K&P Trail Bridge

As part of an ongoing review of MVCA’s conservation area assets, a structural and safety assessment was undertaken of the K&P Trail bridge over the Clyde River in the Township of Lanark Highlands. The assessment determined the bridge deck and railings do not conform to current standards and should be replaced; the remainder of the structure is generally considered to be in satisfactory condition for a structure of its age. Options for the replacement of the bridge decking will be reviewed over the winter of 2021.
