Your President attended several meetings atTown Hall to learn about plans for the hospitallands development and the growth area that isbeing planned around the Oakville Go station.
The hospital lands will mostly be re-purposedfor community use with a community centerand parkland. There is limited residentialhousing. However, did you know that theProvince of Ontario has designated the areaaround the Oakville Go station to providehousing for 20,000 people and work for 8,000people? These plans will require over a decadeto complete.
