Holland Marsh Soup Fest

Truly my favourite event is this Saturday, September 29.  Such a wonderful way to celebrate the rich bounty of the Marsh.  Here are all details for ticket prices, online ticket purchase etc.  My advice:  it starts at 11 AM…go early as the best soups run out!

Edgecore (Fandor) Development

On September 24 Council agenda there is Staff report recommending the signing of a subdivision agreement with Edgecore (Fandor) in Nobleton.  This development is a a great addition to the Nobleton community:  a brownfield site (once an auto recycling facility) is being transformed into a subdivision with single detached and townhouse units.   A couple key points in the report:  final Ministry approval of site remediation has been granted; due to limitations on wastewater capacity development will proceed in phases.  Quality development of brownfield sites, such as this, is truly smart growth.  I am will be asking questions about noise barriers given questions/comments I have been receiving from residents in other new developments.
