More Sites Are Proposed For Huron County's New Administration Building

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

County Staff will report on land availability in the Clinton and Blyth areas.

The debate over a new administration building for Huron County is now about geography, as well as population.

That's according to the County's Chief Administrative Officer, Meighan Wark, who says two sites other than Goderich may be considered.

Several members of Council favour looking at putting the new, $41 million administrative complex in either the Clinton or Blyth areas.

The geography argument stems from the idea that a more central location might serve residents more easily.

Some Council members also wouldn't have to travel as far to meetings, if the building were located in Central Huron or North Huron instead of Goderich.

Wark tells Country 104.9 News that County staff are looking into land availability in both potential locations, and present a report to the County's facility review committee.

Goderich has been the site of Huron County administration buildings since the 19th Century.

The current proposed site for the new complex is the former Victoria Public School property in Goderich.
