Main Street East Neighbourhood Meeting: August 19th, 2021 @ 6:30PM

The good folks over at “Save Main Street” are organizing a good ol’ fashioned “neighbourhood meeting” for this Thursday evening at Centennial Park. With two proposed MSE developments that never were presented to Council for decision and are now awaiting an LPAT hearing, forensic questions about the handling of these applications at Town Hall are certainly in order.

You don’t need to be a resident of Main Street East to attend, but if you have concerns about how this situation came to be or concerns about Town Planning/Administrative matters, you may wish to consider attending.

Here We Grow Again: 141-149 Main St. East (Cole’s Florist) “Open House”

The Town will be hosting an (online) “open house” meeting for the Losani Homes proposal at 141-149 Main Street East, the current location of Cole’s Florist and Garden Centre.

An open house meeting is your first and important opportunity to “take a kick at the can” and let the applicant know what you think of the plan they have brought before the Town.

You can check out the relevant application documents at this link here:
