Almost seven years after the province shut down the Bluewater Youth Detention Centre south of Goderich, the Huron County Economic Development department is looking at options for the mothballed facility
The department has released a Request for Expressions of Interest to identify parties who may be interested in redeveloping the property.
At nearly 300-acres, the property along Highway 21 also runs 2000 feet across the Lake Huron shoreline.
Director of Economic Development, Cody Joudry, says the property could be redeveloped into a commercial or industrial business.
He calls the redevelopment opportunities for the property "wide-ranging."
The majority of the western side of the property is designated a Community Facility in the Central Huron Official Plan.
