Have you ever wondered what's happening to the space between Lakeside Retirement and the Library's Lakeshore Branch? Well we have awesome news. We're developing a "downtown" Town Square like no other. Over the years, we've heard our residents loud and clear - you want more fun things to do close to home. Through the Town Square Public Engagement we heard that you wanted more places for social interaction, a splash pad in Alcona, a skating trail, and more unique spaces for you to enjoy. Whether that be a spot to have a picnic with your family, go for a walk with friends, or simply hangout reading a book, we have a spot for you.

The Design Schematic can be seen below.

Next Steps:

The Town has awarded the Design through the Design Build contract to Rutherford Contracting Ltd. and are working with their Design Build Team to finalize the detailed design.

Construction was scheduled to begin the summer of 2020, however due to COVID-19 shut downs the Design and Construction has been delayed. Tree removal for site preparation for the site will commence September 14, 2020. Please stay tuned for Design updates and Construction timelines.
