FENELON FALLS SOCIAL INFRASTRUCTURE GROUP: Jarrod, Jackson, Adam, Brett,Ben
WE LISTENED (to the clues) 1. Our project outline 2. Lectures in Leadership class 3. The Fenelon Falls area and community 4. Mike Perry-our amazing liaison
Why Benches? Benches influence people to use the currently under used park Benches serve useful to every demographic in Fenelon Falls Suggested by the citizens Benches require virtually no maintenance
Why Tire Mulch? Recycle, Environment, Sustainability! Choosing tire mulch for YOUR project not only impacts the community of Fenelon Falls, it impacts our environment! It’s a WIN WIN situation!
The Sustainable Alternative! The Ontario Tire Stewardship program is aiming at municipalities to use eco-friendly products for building parks, curbs, and play areas in their communities (Nash, 2012) Turning shredded tires into a sustainable product makes sure they don’t end up in our landfill sites or be burned into our environment (Nash, 2012) A OTS poll found that 89% of Ontarians felt their communities would benefit from the use of recycled tire products in community projects (OTS, 2012) So why tire mulch… WHY NOT!
Design Options (Champlin, 2013) 100% recycled materials! Commercial grade benches Various colors 4, 6, and 8 foot lengths Low maintenance Moisture and sun resistance Never requires staining or preservative treatments Aesthetically pleasing and no tire odor
Future Expansion Projects Park and waterfront picnic tables with wheel chair access that cater to Fenelon’s senior community as well as giving physically challenged visitors the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the waterfront and parks the Falls have to offer! (Champlin, 2013)
Other Expansion Options All tables are 100% recycled materials Like the park benches they come in various colors and lengths for all types of applications Weighing between 280 and 470 lbs. these tables are heavy duty and maintenance free (Champlin, 2013)
