Still time for input on Grimsby’s Casablanca Waterfront park development
Published July 16, 2021 at 1:53 pm
Grimsby residents still have until the end of August to offer their input on the present design on the massive Casablanca Waterfront park development.
At this point, it seems the main concern for residents is that the development may cut them off of the lake-side property they’ve enjoyed for decades.
That’s why, the Town said in a release, it’s important to speak up now as it was hoping to bring increased connectivity to the waterfront for its population.
“Since the beginning of development, there has been significant interest in this area, emphasizing the connectivity and accessibility along the waterfront is a top priority for the Casablanca neighbourhood,” Town staff said.
For residents worried that backhoes, trucks and construction will block them from their waterfront area, the Town said they were designing it to be built in phases so that access will always be maintained.
While the development spans the waterfront area from Hunter Road to the Water Treatment plant with the easterly Losani development area to be developed later, the Town emphasizes, “The park project will be completed in several phases to maintain community access to the waterfront pathway as much as possible throughout the process.”
It added, “Some of the project’s work will be completed concurrently, and some will be carried out in consecutive phases.”
