Public input sought by town

Staff

The future of the Shelvin Wood Yard and Nursing Station is currently being determined and the town is requesting public input.
Through provincial and federal funding, Fort Frances recently hired consultants to assist in creating redevelopment plans for both properties.
The first public consultation session regarding the Shelvin Wood Yard and Nursing Station is slated for next Thursday (Feb. 13) from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at La Place Rendez-Vous (1201 Idylwild Drive).
The consultation is open to stakeholders and members of the general public. Space is limited and those interested in attending must RVSP to the town’s chief building official, Cody Vangel by emailing cvangel@fortfrances.ca or calling 807-274-5323 ext 1216.
Vangel said there will be a total of three public meetings held over the next six to eight month, where town residents can discuss what they would like to see done at the Shelvin Wood Yard and Nursing Station.
The purpose of the first consultation session is to get ideas from community members and stakeholders on what direction they would like to see the town-owned properties go in, he noted.
Vangel said that public input is “paramount” to the project and he encourages anyone with ideas for the Shelvin Wood Yard and Nursing Station to attend the public input sessions.
