For the residents of Grimsby, they wanted to make sure the developer of Century Condos downtown heard their messages “loud and clear” on the proposed development.  From what News Now is reporting, it seems at least on the issue of height and heritage, the developer is going back to the drawing board for 4-storeys.

Richard Hutton of Niagara This Week just posted his article on last night’s Open House on “Century Condos”.  If you could not make it, it is worth the read to get a feel for the “room” that was Council Chambers on Tuesday evening.

We will have our own notes up of the meeting shortly.

You can read the NTW article at the following link:  https://www.niagarathisweek.com/news-story/8356851–no-more-than-four-/

Thank You: Century Condos Open House!

While we are compiling notes, we just wanted to say what a great turnout there was at Town Hall on Tuesday Night.  So much that the Fire Department had to enforce the 185 people maximum in the building and turn people away.

For those who were unable to get in, from our understanding (subject to change) the Town took their names and they will have an opportunity at the April 10, 2018 P&D meeting to have their say to Town Staff and the Committee.

For those who did get in and especially for those who spoke, it was clear that the Committee, Town Staff and the Developer heard the message of “No More Than Four”.  Some Committee members even went so far to remark “Three is even better”.

You can still send an e-mail/letter off to Council ahead of the Council meeting on Monday,

Thanks to everyone for joining the cause and their continuing support to preserve our Downtown!
