Ontario Reformatory Updates

Great News:
The City Council endorsed the Phase 1 study on the Heritage Conservation District expanded boundaries study on March 21st.  This includes all of the current reformatory site at 785 York Rd., part of 919 York Rd., the city-owned property at 80 Dunlop Dr. as well as 328 Victoria Rd. S.
This means that a Phase 2 study will go ahead.
The map of the boundaries is here: See map link.

We have also had a lot of inquiries about the Federal Government’s National Urban Park initiative.  It seems that many of you would like to see a National Urban Park established here in Guelph, as would we.  Please be patient while we work with others in the community to move this wonderful idea forward.  More to come . . .
