This would make for a great art studio space with cafes and small shops to support local artisans. Coupled with a small community park and a small live/work space, this is great for both the community and tourism. Similar to Wychwood Barns. We need more spaces that support local Canadian small business artisans and entrepreneurs.
It seems we are all for encouraging refugees and people escaping from Donald Trump. Canadians as a whole seem to support the anti-Trump brigade. Everyone seems to support this action. Our government of Justin Troudeau is committed to bringing thousands into Canada and they must be given good lives. Belfountain is the ideal place for them. A loving, gentle community. I would love to have the diversity of cultures across the street from me. Muslims in this area have no mosque and no support and our government warns us against Islamophobia.
The New Canadians need housing. Thousands need good affordable housing.This would be a wonderful site for massive affordable housing for New Canadians. Fresh air. Good communications down Mississauga Road. It would keep the library open and also justify the school in Belfountain. The site should house at least several thousand good New Canadians. Perhaps there could be support from the Federal Government ?
It’s wrong to keep this site for the elite here.
This size may even justify good sewage treatment installations.
Really, How come you get to decide what I or someone else thinks. You don’t get to speak for me, a conscious, thinking thoughtful person. How dare you!
Now you want to put thousands of people on that land. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE THEM TO DRINK AND WASH WITH! SAND!!! There is no water on that land and not a lot in Belfountain as it goes. Do your self a favour, forget CNN and get FOX if you want a fair and balanced thought.
What are the chances we could somehow come up with the money to buy this property? I know it sounds crazy, but what if….
With a conservation easement on it, the value would be reduced making taxes quite small. We could turn it into a park, maybe carve off one lot or two and keep the rest as a park area.
