At the June 19th, 2023, meeting, Council approved the execution of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the Grain Terminals Revitalization Project. Staff will now proceed with the next phases of the project. This will include planning for initial community engagement and consultation with an intention of beginning active engagement in 2023.
In addition, the proponent and the Town will begin to negotiate and complete the required binding agreements. Additional investigative work on the Terminals and the surrounding lands will commence, as appropriate and will support the required land use planning applications to facilitate the redevelopment.
Public input and the findings from the additional investigative work will be critical in informing the design of the final concept for the lands, which will be subject to Council decisions under the Planning Act.
An Information Booth for the Grain Terminals Revitalization will be set up at the Collingwood Farmers’ Market on Saturday, August 26, 2023.
