Here we go again. After Council decided in February 2022 to implement a total ban of the discharge of firearms and bows, other than for farm protection, it would seem that special interest is trying to cajole the new term of Council into catering to their desire to be discharging firearms and bows for sport hunting and other “recreational” purposes.Continue reading
With the Town moving away from the Committee of the Whole governance system and re-establishing Standing Committees, opportunities have re-opened for residents to be an active part of the municipal decision-making process through committee membership.Continue reading
The deadline of September 23, 2022 @ 12PM is drawing near if you want to speak or make comment at the Town’s Zoom-only “open house” meeting for the lands known as 502 Winston Road (aka “321 Hunter Road”) scheduled for September 26, 2022.

The Town recently published notice of an “open house” meeting for the lands known as 502 Winston Road (aka “321 Hunter Road”). The meeting will focus on the applicant’s request to have the Official Plan amended to re-designate the land, which is in the Green Belt, from ” Specialty Crop Area – Tender Fruit and Grape Lands” to just “Rural”.Continue reading
The Town sent out an “email blast” today to inform people that the Open House event for the Grimsby Beach Study for November 4th has been cancelled, due to unforeseen circumstances.
When a new date for the open house has been determined, it will be posted here and on the GCFRG Facebook page.
As discussed in a previous post, the Town had scheduled both an Open House meeting and Public Meeting for the Grimsby Beach Study for November 4, 2021.
In response to public concern, the Town has now made the November 4th meeting an Open House only event. The Public Meeting will now be held at a future date, to be determined.
If you have requested a delegation and have comments or concerns over the study, please attend the Zoom “Open House” as scheduled, as it is still an important step in this process. If there is a livestream available, we will rebroadcast it so those who wish to spectate, may day so.
Stay tuned for future updates on the Public Meeting.
The group redeveloping the Casablanca Winery Inn will be holding a public “open house” event on November 3, 2020. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you simply can not drop in but must register for a slot.
The event will be held in the Lakeside Ballroom of the hotel between 4:30 PM and 6 PM. You can register for one of the 30-minute slots by:
Telephone: (905) 738-8080 Ext. 278
E-Mail: Alyson Naseer – firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a maximum of 25 people per slot and are reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis. Please RSVP before attending.
The Town is hosting a “virtual open house” tonight (September 24) at 6PM for the proposed development on the Casablanca Winery Inn lands.
The deadline to register to speak at the Zoom meeting has passed, but you can watch the livestream on the GCFRG Facebook live page by clicking this link here or the Town’s live stream at: https://vimeo.com/grimsbycouncilchambers
Besides writing the Town correspondence, there will still be one more chance to publicly participate in the process and make your views known. The proposal still needs to undergo a statutory public meeting at sometime in the future (modified for COVID-19 safeguards of course).
You can find background material on this development on the Town’s “Current Planning Applications” under the “4 Windward” Tab:
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.Continue reading
