Green Light for Housing Plan

Georgian Bluffs | by Kevin Bernard  

Georgian Bluffs and Owen Sound reach agreement for 86 home development.

A new housing development is about to rise in Georgian Bluffs.

Georgian Shores Estates will involve up to 86 homes near Cobble Beach, just off Grey Road 1.

Mayor Alan Barfoot is glad to see the project going ahead, after the City of Owen Sound filed an objection with the Ontario Municipal Board.

Barfoot says the City was concerned about a large develop going in north of the city without sewer services.

Now, a deal has been worked out where the project will be phased in.

Northridge homes will build 16 homes first, with individual septic systems.

Then, the company do a "servicing options" study on how any future homes will be serviced.

Mayor Barfoot says the developer is likely to start construction in the spring on the Estate sized lots.

The homes are expected to be close to 400 thousand dollars each.
