News Yonge and Mosley by Tom Mrakas July 31, 2020 4 Comments by Tom Mrakas July 31, 2020 I am pleased to announce the Town has purchased the property at the south east corner of Yonge and Mosley to complete the block of properties known as Library Square. This property, has long been a strategic piece of the overall revitalization of our downtown core and this Council has finally been able to complete this purchase. Council approved the conditional sale in June 2019 but due to Covid19 it is just being finalized. Council is poised to award the contract for Library Square, and by owning this property, it ensures the Town will be able to redevelop this property in a way that complements our heritage character and maintains our height restriction. This purchase also allows us to address some of the issues in the area from housing to parking. Stay tuned, more to follow!
