June 10, 2019: CARA made a presentation to Council in support of the Creemore Community Foundation and the emerging Creemore Village Green project. Council approved the resolution to direct Staff to work with the Creemore Village Green Project Team to prepare a redevelopment plan for the former TD Bank property on Mill Street in Creemore. A draft partnership agreement will be created for review by Clearview Council at a future Council Meeting.
June 8, 2019: CARA held its AGM. Thanks Stuart Lazier, our guest speaker, who updated us on the Creemore Community Foundation, and all who attended.
October 2018 to date: CARA has been active in the TD Lands Committee (TLC) that was established to work with Small Consulting to develop a community consultation process and make recommendations regarding the future of the TD Lands. Thanks all who took the time to attend the workshops - this was an extraordinary amount of productive community engagement. Following CARA’s involvement, a new Implementation Committee has been established to oversee the continued development of the Creemore Village Green and implement the “supporting measures” that emerged from the TLC’s recommendations.
