Wel­land can take a bow on de­vel­op­ment

Re: Record year for de­vel­op­ment in Wel­land, Mic­jelle Allenberg, Jan. 9

As re­ported, “In 2016 the city is­sued 622 per­mits rep­re­sent­ing projects val­ued at $81.7 mil­lion. Dur­ing 2017, 726 per­mits were is­sued, rep­re­sent­ing projects val­ued at more than $164.5 mil­lion.”

And pro­jec­tions for 2018 could be even bet­ter?

Ku­dos to Dan Degazio, Wel­land’s di­rec­tor of eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and his team. Get­ting the shov­els into the ground within eight weeks? Fan­tas­tic.

You and your team should take a bow.

Mayor Frank Cam­pion, this might be an elec­tion year but this is very re­fresh­ing. To all those at city hall you too take a bow. Thanks to all of you.

There are many peo­ple in the next years and years to come who will have work for them in this city of ours. Proud to be a Wel­lan­der.

Ron St. Louis Wel­land
