I understand the Starbucks on Wilson will be closing at the end of the year.

Leads to wonder if that strip mall is being redeveloped.

And then there's Maude!:


Preserve Ancaster’s uniqueness
Re: Proposed development at Wilson and Academy streets in Ancaster


Ancaster is Ontario's best kept secret. We are the best that Hamilton has to offer. Stop trying to change it. Local developers should be trying to preserve and protect our beautiful community. High-rise, urban development would destroy our historic community. The problem with Sergio Manchia and UrbanCore Developments is that they are trying to make Old Ancaster more urban with higher density.

We are not urban, the vision for Ancaster is multi-million dollar estate homes, mixed with single-family properties, mixed with country farmland. High-rise developments should be located in the Meadowlands, where higher density has already been voted on and passed by city council. Mr. Manchia and UrbanCore Developments should focus on developing other communities in the Golden Horseshoe Area and get out of old Ancaster! If big city developers cannot follow the bylaw in Ancaster, then get out! You are going to waste everyone's time and money with yet another legal battle at the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (formerly known as the Ontario Municipal Board).

Darrell J. Hicks,

Ancaster

That's great news. The money issues have been handled well, I think (and it was not just the provincial money being pulled, but a much larger than expected cost estimate as well)

Fergie must be all aglow.
