Hope springs eternal
Who knew that a phone call to councillor Wendy Partner in the summer of 2016 from a frustrated Tino Montopoli would kick off a chain of events that has put Orono in a much more positive light today.
Montopoli, who was the owner of Stutt’s Pharmacy, asked Partner two summers ago why Millbrook is getting so much Highway 407 related development and Orono is getting nothing? The answer of course is that Orono is in the provincial greenbelt and that, coupled with our lack of sewers means we cannot grow. Partner’s response was that there should be no reason we couldn’t have limited growth in the village.
That led to a request by the Orono BIA for an urban boundary expansion to be considered in Clarington’s official plan review. The vision was for a parcel of land north of the existing seniors complex on Station Street, to accommodate an adult lifestyle community of approximately 100 units. This community would be serviced by a communal servicing system. Council approved Montopoli’s request when he presented it to them in September 2016.
