There is a panel discussion happening this Thursday, March 26th at 7pm that will be an opportunity for the community of Guelph to express itself and ask questions about the Hanlon Creek Business Park, a development intended to commence this spring on 675 acres of wild land.

Community dialogue hosted by Guelph Civic League (GCL) to discuss Hanlon Creek Business Park (HCBP).

Norfolk Street United Church Meeting Room 1
Thursday, March 26th 7-9 p.m.


James Gordon - Wellington Water Watchers

Judy Martin - Guelph Urban Forest Friends (GUFF)

Matt Soltys - Land is More Important than Spawl (LIMITS)
Councillor Lise Burcher - Chair: Community Development and Environmental Services Committee

Peter Cartwright - General Manager: Economic Development and Tourism

(Consultants who have worked on the HCBP, Mr. Jim Riddle, reps from Council of Canadians, GCL and other community groups will be present to take part.)

The evening will begin with 5 minute presentation/remarks by each panelist and will then move to a facilitated dialogue. As a community we can share information, appreciate one another’s perspectives and develop strategies to balance a strong economy with a strongly protected environment.
