May 15, 2019 / GCFRG / Comments Off on NOTICE: Livingston Avenue Extension (Woodlot) PIC #2
Well, thanks to a tip from a reader we now know that the Region will be hosting their Public Information Centre #2 for the Livingston Avenue Extension EA on Tuesday May 28th. It should be interesting to see what plans they have for the Irish Grove Woodlot.
May 11, 2019 / GCFRG / Comments Off on Here We Grow Again: Casablanca Winery Inn Redux (Developer Open House)
More than a year after the then Planning & Development Committee Chairman Nick DiFlavio told the Casablanca Inn Winery developers “Please don’t come back here with the exact same plan”, it looks like they are ready to take another kick at the can.
As the Biodisaster Biodigester was long a “staple” post on GCFRG, it seemed appropriate to do a special post with a recent video piece from CHCH television about old Council’s science fair project. One paid with the million$ that rightfully belonged to the taxpayer.
February 24, 2019 / GCFRG / Comments Off on REMINDER: Losani/Fifth Wheel Planning “Open House” – Tuesday February 26, 2019

February 10, 2019 / GCFRG / Comments Off on REMINDER: Fifth Wheel/Losani Planning “Open House” – February 12th @ 6PM
As a public service, GCFRG will still post items that it deems of “significant public interest” and with that we are bringing you are a reminder of the Town’s “Open House” event for the proposed Losani development at the former “Fifth Wheel” site at Casablanca Boulevard & Winston Road.
As promised in our “finale” post… we would update you on Council’s decision on whether to opt-out or opt-in to retail cannabis sales. Council voted on the matter a short time ago and voted to “opt-out”, the decision being almost unanimous with only Councillor Vaine voting in favour of retail sales.
The upcoming Council meeting on Monday (January 21) is certainly to be an interesting one, although the Biodigester is on the agenda, front and centre will be the debate and vote on whether Grimsby should “opt-out” or “opt-in” of retail cannabis sales.
What a week it has been. First come the real numbers of what that pipe-dream on the hill has really cost taxpayers. And no this author does not buy the spin of the old Council saying that “not a a single taxpayers dollar” was involved… that money should have rightfully gone back to the Town.
Representing the citizens of Grimsby to ensure that the Town’s planning for intensification results in responsible growth while preserving the majesty of the escarpment and natural areas, the Lake Ontario waterfront, the small town charm, character and history, and the friendly nature of its people.
Bringing the citizens of Grimsby and its elected town council together to foster responsible growth and good planning to make Grimsby a leading community of modern small town living.
