Notes: Planning & Development (Century Condos Open House) – March 27, 2018

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.

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!

Here We Grow Again: Century Condos in Downtown Grimsby

The community has been asking a lot of questions about what is happening with the downtown property at Main Street and Elm, next to “Beyond the Barre” across from the TD Bank.

This property was purchased by DeSantis (in addition to a few other properties abutting it) and fencing and a large sign was recently erected advertising “Coming Soon – Century Condos”.

Downtown Grimsby Businesses Still Affected After Fire

The fire trucks are long gone but for those who live or have businesses in Downtown Grimsby, things are not as they used to be.

With a part of westbound Main Street still closed to vehicular traffic, the temporary move of the Market to the Peach King Centre,  coupled with people being on summer holidays… businesses are still being impacted by the aftermath of the downtown fire.

UPDATE: Grimsby Downtown Fire Photos

Here are some of the photos we took downtown this afternoon of the aftermath of the fire.  It was quite an unsettling scene and eerily quiet, given what a regular Friday afternoon in the downtown area would normally be like.
