There is an interesting item on Monday evenings council meeting consent agenda as follows:
- Proposal to Purchase of Land – Block 9, Plan 51M-926, Steve Assaff, Peter Dunbar and Mike Hensel.
Guess where that piece of land is folks?
Apparently the town owns it and it is the last remaining piece of waterfront that stretches from his Mississauga strip mall all the way to Heritage Way.
My first thought is why is this even being considered? When you take in to account that the town is in the process of doing a town wide strategic plan. That plan should obviously include the last remaining piece of waterfront land left in town.
My second thought is I wonder what Mr. Assaff has in mind from his little bag of tricks for this site. Maybe a another bank? Or even better, a couple of fast food restaurants and a gas station.
Many of us voted for certain members of this current council to protect us from this type of thing. If this piece of land ends up in Assaff’s hands prior to an appropriate plan being in place, then I will formally and unequivocally be withdrawing my support for any council member that does not rail against this sale.
Most of you were asleep at the switch when Assaff foisted the pharmacy and bank upon us. Now you have no such excuse.
