89 Richmond Rd - Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-Law Amendment & Site Plan Control applications + Open House

Many community members have been inquiring about the future of 89 Richmond Rd, a property that experienced a fire in 2017 and has sat vacant since. The property owners are now ready to move forward with a proposed development at that location. The property owners are proposing to construct a six (6) storey mixed-use building on the subject property.


Tillbury Park - lifecycle project for playground and gazebo

The City is moving forward with the lifecycle renewal of the playground and gazebo at Tillbury Park. It is anticipated that the replacement will be completed in the Fall with the playground area re-opened in late Fall (these timelines are weather-dependent). A more specific timeline will be available over the next few months. The work area will be fenced off (including one of the pathway entrances) but the intention is to minimize the impact on park access during the replacement.
