A new subdivision planned for Creemore is moving ahead, in a bit of a different direction.
At the Clearview Township council meeting on Monday evening, a Memorandum of Understanding with Alliance Heritage Village on Mary Street was approved.
Mayor Chris Vanderkruys says the document means the 525 home development will now go ahead in phases with construction of the first phase starting this Spring. Vanderkruys says the development plans were taken to the Ontario Municipal Board by, he believes, residents of Creemore and this is the next step following the direction from the OMB.
At this meeting, a representative of the Creemore Area Residents Association told council he has no objections to the development.
Council also got an update on the new Stayner library. The Library Building Committee recently met with the architect and the selection has been narrowed down to two contractors, but there are still some clarifications needed. The Committee hopes to have something to present to council at its next meeting.
A by-law was approved at this meeting to include the expansion of a no stopping area near Lavender Falls.The falls are on private property and there has been an issue with trespassers who park on Mulmur-Nottawasaga Townline. The no stopping area is now extended to the north side of the road west from Concession 10 South Nottawasaga to the Mulmur Melancthon Townline.
