More on the Project:

 

The Campus Habitations proposal for the Township’s property at Rows Corners follows a series of events which began with Council’s strategic planning session held at the start of its current term.

Among other priorities in its Strategic Plan, Council specifically identified to “review and challenge the status quo of current land assets and oversee corporate property decisions to maximize value, particularly Rows Corners Fairgrounds and North Augusta Road properties”, and also to “prioritize growth, streamline development processes, and support developers in initiating new projects”.

During various Committee and Council meetings throughout Spring 2023, robust discussions regarding the property took place and Council ultimately passed a resolution at its April 11, 2023, meeting to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) whereby housing could be an option.

After an assessment of the RFP’s, at its July 17, 2023, meeting, Council passed a resolution to continue due diligence with Campus Habitations and now that a Site Plan has been submitted for review and approval, the Township is seizing this opportunity to bring the balance of the process back into the public forum.
