Community meeting

Community meeting underway for redevelopment of Fergus Golf Club

BELWOOD – A developer is inviting the public to learn more about his plan to redevelopment part of the Fergus Golf Club.

On the evening of June 1 at Belwood Hall, Geranium Homes is holding a community information meeting regarding its plan to build 118 detached homes on what is now a nine-hole golf course owned by Golf North at what is legally known as 8243, 8268 and 828 Wellington Road 19 on the south side.

The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. with registration before moving on to a developer presentation and ending with an opportunity for discussion and questions to the applicant and consultant team.

The developer proposes half-acre lots serviced by condominium roads and private common water and sewage facilities. The existing 18-hole golf course on the north side of Wellington Road 19 will be retained as part of the development.

Geranium applied for a zoning bylaw amendment because the site had already been approved in the 1990s for 41 residential units.

A notice from Geranium stated that this meeting is not the statutory public meeting required by the Planning Act, but is being held on a voluntary basis to give residents an opportunity to learn about the proposal and ask questions.

This meeting has not yet been set.

Those interested in participating are asked to register before May 27 by email [email protected] or by phone at (416)-347-9102.

The meeting will take place on June 1 at Belwood Hall at 36 Queen Street in Belwood.
