City of Woodstock Renews Pittock South Shore Agreement

The City of Woodstock and the UTRCA have once again signed the Pittock South Shore Agreement giving citizens free access to that area.

WOODSTOCK - The City of Woodstock has signed the Pittock South Shore Agreement with the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority.

Residents won't see any major impact because the city has had the same agreement with the UTRCA for the past decade. It allows the public to enjoy the south shore free of charge.

Director of Parks and Recreation Brian Connors tells us why this agreement is important.

"Without it Upper Thames could close it off or charge people to go. So this agreement allows the city to make one payment and it covers everyone for the year."

The city will pay the UTRCA a total of $95,000 throughout 2016. A payment of $47,500 will be due in May and the other half will be paid in September. The funds will be coming out of the city's parks and recreation budget.
