The Council Chambers were packed again as two hot issues were on the agenda – the potential Livingston Avenue Extension through the woodlot and ongoing dumping of fill on Kemp Road properties. And don’t miss the New Business piece at the very end … the Biodigester!
Council is back for another summer session on Monday August 21st, 2017 at 6:30 PM (summer start time). There is a couple interesting delegations on the Agenda including one to speak about the dumping that is occurring on Kemp and another landowner family *supporting* the idea of a Livingston Avenue Extension.
It was standing room only at the August 16th Public Works Committee meeting, literally…. the Chambers did not have enough seats, so many stood in the doorway throughout the proceedings. A “tip of the hat” definitely goes to all those residents who attended and show their support for saving the Irish Woodlot.

The Public Works meeting on August 16th, 2017 is one many of us have been looking forward to. This meeting represents the first of the last big steps (the second being Town Council next week) that could finally ensure that the Irish Wood Lot is protected from having a major roadway plowed through it in the name of the unneeded Livingston Avenue extension.

It should come as no surprise to those who drive along the QEW even on an irregular basis or those who follow our posts, that the first phase of LJM’s “Waterview Condominums” has been declared as “delayed”.

With the Public Works Committee meeting discussing the future of the Irish Woodlot coming up on August 16th, we thought we would bring back a couple articles that give a little history on the beginnings and battle to protect these precious lands.
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.
