Brookswood/Fernridge Community Plan needs input

The Township is going ahead with two public open houses to receive input on the Brookswood/Fernridge Community Plan.

The first open houses take place on Tuesday, Jan. 15 from 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the small gym at Brookswood Secondary.

The second is on Saturday, Jan. 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. also at BSS.

The Township will present information gathered from the public consultation workshops that were held in October. Each of those workshops were full with many residents interested and concerned about what Brookswood could look like.

Some have worried it will become the next Willoughby, which some feel is overpopulated and too dense.

Property owners, business owners, and residents of the community are encouraged to attend.

The open houses are being held in conjunction with the Anderson Creek Integrated Stormwater Management Plan.

The new plan is named the Griffith Neighbourhood Plan.

It is named after Robert Griffith who, in 1901, owned 160 acres north of 36 Avenue and west of 200 Street; a stretch of 200 Street was once named for him.
