Bill 66 is one giant step closer to City of Barrie/Springwater Township annexation

An important document by AWARE Simcoe.

It’s pretty obvious that the township mayor, staff and councillors side with the speculators.

An exccerpt:

Who wants this?
Speculators – There is a surplus of serviced employment lands within Simcoe County. Bill 66 raises the possibility of a variety of scenarios under which these employment lands, designated in a responsible manner as part of a community-wide process, will become devalued and left vacant in favour of protected lands adjacent to settlement areas. The natural “buffer” between Barrie and Midhurst is one example where land has been purchased to be held in case something like Bill 66 could free it for development. (Once that buffer is breached, annexation by the city is only a breath away – note what happened to Vespra Township in 1981)….

AWARE Simcoe submission on Bill 66.

Everyone in Springwater Township that pays taxes should be concerned.
