Special Meeting of Council – December 17, 2019

What a night!  Last night, at a Special Council Meeting, Council unanimously approved to issue the tender package for Library Sq. This truly is an historic moment in this Town as we are one step closer to this incredible concept becoming a reality and we continue to move towards the larger vision for the Cultural Precinct as a destination in York Region.

Looking back over the past 20 years that this issue has been discussed, there have been many discussions, debates, consultations along the way that have seen may twist and turns. All of this has helped turn this project into the right project for our Town, that will kickstart the transformation of our Downtown core.

Our downtown core was the heart of our community and economic hub of our Town for generations.  And with a unanimous decision of Council last night, our downtown is about to return to our past and become, once again, a place that brings people together to celebrate and embrace the character of our community.
