Sim­coe hous­ing project OK’d

The Expositor (Brantford) - - NEWS -

A Brant­ford de­vel­oper has re­ceived the green light to build town­houses on a va­cant sec­tion of the former Nor­folk Co-op prop­erty in down­town Sim­coe.

“This ap­pli­ca­tion would have a pos­i­tive im­pact on as­sess­ment growth, wa­ter and wastew­a­ter rev­enue and tax rev­enues,” se­nior plan­ner Alisha Cull said in a re­port to Nor­folk coun­cil, which ap­proved the 14 town­houses last week.

The prop­erty be­gins at Stan­ley Street and Head Street South and runs nearly the en­tire length of Head Street South.

De­vel­oper Danny De­do­mini­cis was rep­re­sented by J.H. Co­hoon En­gi­neer­ing, also of Brant­ford.

Nor­folk coun­cil had plans this year to re­build Head Street South but de­ferred the project be­cause of the town­house ap­pli­ca­tion.

By putting off the re­build for a year, De­do­mini­cis and the mu­nic­i­pal­ity will be able to co-or­di­nate the in­stal­la­tion of ser­vices at the town­house de­vel­op­ment with the in­stal­la­tion of ser­vices be­neath the trav­elled por­tion of Head Street South.

The project’s ap­proval is sub­ject to nearly 60 con­di­tions re­lated to land­scap­ing, the plant­ing of trees, cash-in-lieu of park­land, a traf­fic study and other con­sid­er­a­tions.
