The Town will be hosting an Open House for their Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan on Tuesday October 16th, 2018. This is your chance to see how the plan is forming and give your last minute input.
EDIT: The original date of October 9th has been changed to October 16th.
Details in the flyer as below:
REMINDER: Century Condos Open House – May 29 @ 7 pm – Town Hall
Don’t miss the May 29th Public Open House at 7:00 pm on the Century Condos downtown development to hear about the revised 4 storey proposal and provide any comments you may have.
After a well attended Planning & Development Open House meeting on the now cancelled 8 storey proposal for Century Condos downtown, the developer and his team will be back at Town Hall on Tuesday May 29th to present their 4 storey revised proposal.

There will be an “open house” on Wednesday, April 4th at Town Hall for public comments, questions or concerns with the proposed Rec Master Plan.
The meeting will be held at Town Hall, 160 Livingston Avenue from 6:30PM – 8:30PM.
While everyone has been enjoying the long weekend, we have been busy putting together our notes from the March 27, 2018 Planning & Development meeting. With so many speakers for the Century Condos “open house”, needless to say we had a great deal of paper to go over.
The Town has posted the above public notice here on the cancellation of the planned second “open house” on the Century Condo proposal downtown.
The notice states that the “proposed design will be changed significantly“, so there will be another Open House on the revised design at a future date.
Credit goes out to all residents who spoke, written and attended the meetings so far, the Planning & Development Committee, Town Staff and credit to the developer for listening to the community.
Let’s hope that the new design keeps with the Official Plan maximum height of four-storeys, brings a heritage look and keeps the whole community happy.

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.

Just a quick reminder for those who may have forgot (and we don’t think anyone has) that the Open House meeting for the proposed Century Condos on Downtown Main Street will be happening tonight. The Developer, Town Staff and the Planning & Development Committee will be on hand to hear your take on this project.
Although the meeting will start at 7:00 PM, we encourage you to show up early and meet us in the parking lot where we will be handing out some important additional information. Also seating will be at a premium, so early birds will get a good seat!
Location: Grimsby Town Hall, Council Chambers, 160 Livingston Avenue
Time: 7:00 PM, but we recommend coming early for those who will require seating.
We hope to see you all at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, March 27th at the Planning & Development Committee Open House for the proposed Century Condos development (21, 23 Main Street East and 6 Doran Ave) in the Downtown – Main Street area. Come early to get a seat! The agenda for the meeting and details of the proposal can be found here:

March 20th Planning & Development Committee
A big THANK YOU! to everyone who made the effort to come out to the two Planning & Development Committee Open Houses held at Town Hall on Tuesday, March 20th. The Council Chambers were overflowing with standing room only in the foyer.
While we are busy compiling the minutes of the very intense (and long) Planning and Development meeting from Tuesday night, we thought we would share a Niagara This Week article on how things went down (and not so well for the developer).
