Notes: Special Council – August 27, 2020 – Century Condos

It was a rather long “Special Meeting” on Thursday evening where Council took up the matter of the proposed Century Condos downtown. It’s been a long r̶o̶a̶d̶ laneway since this development was first made public in 2018.

With Council not satisfied with what was brought forth at the August 17th regular meeting, it was sent back for more deliberations between the Town’s Planners and the developer, and presumably their legal teams. Thursday night saw a revised proposal that cut a few units from the last proposal and did some shuffling around to change parking numbers.

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!


Century Condos Downtown: NO MORE THAN FOUR!

We heard the people loud and clear.  The question is… did Grimsby Town Council?

The citizens of Grimsby are NOT happy with the proposed Century Condos development downtown.  NewsNow reports on the developer-led March 1st Open House here: http://wn3.ca/2018/03/09/raucous-crowd-greets-desantis-proposal/

Do you want to do something about it?
Do you want to send your message of disapproval loud and clear to Council?

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.
