Well, we would normally have notes from Council but we think NewsNow sums up what happened with the Century Condo project past Monday evening pretty well. We have added in some prefacing commentary as well…
After a claimed “mistake” in posting the public notice sign for October 9th meeting on the proposed Century Condos project downtown, the makeup second public meeting for this development is being held this coming Tuesday, November 13th @ 7PM at Town Hall.
While the agenda was sparse, the air was dense as people waited with baited breaths to hear and speak to the updated report on the 4/5 storey Century Condos development downtown.
May 29 – Planning & Development Committee Notes
Official Minutes: https://grimsby.civicweb.net/filepro/documents?preview=94709
There was another great turnout for the Century Condos revised proposal (21, 23, 25 Main St. E. And 6 Doran Avenue) “open house” at the May 29thPlanning & Development Committee meeting.
After a well attended Planning & Development Open House meeting on the now cancelled 8 storey proposal for Century Condos downtown, the developer and his team will be back at Town Hall on Tuesday May 29th to present their 4 storey revised proposal.
For the residents of Grimsby, they wanted to make sure the developer of Century Condos downtown heard their messages “loud and clear” on the proposed development. From what News Now is reporting, it seems at least on the issue of height and heritage, the developer is going back to the drawing board for 4-storeys.
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.
Richard Hutton of Niagara This Week just posted his article on last night’s Open House on “Century Condos”. If you could not make it, it is worth the read to get a feel for the “room” that was Council Chambers on Tuesday evening.
We will have our own notes up of the meeting shortly.

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!
Just a quick reminder for those who may have forgot (and we don’t think anyone has) that the Open House meeting for the proposed Century Condos on Downtown Main Street will be happening tonight. The Developer, Town Staff and the Planning & Development Committee will be on hand to hear your take on this project.
Although the meeting will start at 7:00 PM, we encourage you to show up early and meet us in the parking lot where we will be handing out some important additional information. Also seating will be at a premium, so early birds will get a good seat!
Location: Grimsby Town Hall, Council Chambers, 160 Livingston Avenue
Time: 7:00 PM, but we recommend coming early for those who will require seating.
