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.
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:
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.

These policies will impact ANY new development OR redevelopment in Grimsby. Height and density bonusing can be permitted ANYWHERE – even in your existing neighbourhood.

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.
