As we mentioned last week, Mike Hensel and his team presented a draft plan of subdivision on Monday. Speaking to Council and a full chamber of Meaford residents, he outlined the many improvements to the concept plan for this Ontario retirement community made since last September.
These included retaining the northerly watercourse, maintaining a larger, contiguous tract of woodland in the heart of Meaford Haven by moving the through road closer to the eastern boundary of the community; and adding a second egress into the Ridge Creek subdivision to diffuse traffic. (The road itself is planned with traffic calming measures to keep Meaford Haven pedestrian friendly and discourage through traffic.)
At the meeting, a resident of the Ridge Creek subdivision presented some further requests for information, and the desire for phased constructions and new sidewalks within Ridge Creek.
It looks like the Meaford Planning Department will be back with a report in July; Meaford Haven will be another step closer to realizing the vision of the Three-Seasons retirement community.
