LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE

LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN identified as ongoing then it is likely an action that requires continual updating such as the five year review process for regional and municipal Official Plans, which is not allocated a dollar amount. If an existing program already has funding, and the project and funding have a termination date, then these projects have a specific dollar amount attached to them. In addition, funds allocated as part of annual budgeting have also been assigned dollar amounts. The recommended actions have also been identified in terms of their implementation. Green denotes short term implementation, yellow represents medium term implementation and red is used to indicate long term implementation. For example, projects that are ongoing are almost always implemented over the long term and are therefore, represented in red. Projects that have specific funding requirements or require approvals, for example, are often represented in green and yellow, thereby indicating short term or medium term implementation respectively. . 236
