Location Plan for Ennismore CIP Area

The Township of Selwyn is working with Engage Engineering to complete detailed designs for CIP enhancements at the corner of Tara and Ennis Roads in Ennismore. In addition to improvements at the main intersection, Engage Engineering will also complete detailed designs to extend the sidewalk on Ennis Road westerly from the intersection to Earl Avenue approximately 146 metres and easterly from intersection approximately 509 metres (across from the Ennismore Community Centre).

The roadway and intersection of Tara and Ennis Road is under the jurisdiction of the County of Peterborough - County Road (16). The Township has jurisdiction over sidewalks and other public realm amenities proposed as part of this project. All Community Improvement Plan enhancements, including sidewalk installations will be managed through Selwyn Township for this project. The County of Peterborough will be consulted throughout the planning as it relates to any improvements in the roadway/intersection.
