​​P​RESS RELEASE

Simcoe County Affordable Housing Project to Commence Shortly ​​

Bradford West Gwillimbury, ON (November 24, 2022) – Site works and construction is slated to begin at the County's Simcoe Road affordable housing project. Located at the north-east corner of Simcoe Road and Marshview Boulevard, the 50-unit mixed-use building will feature affordable residences for eligible families and seniors, a County of Simcoe social and community services office, and a ground-level community space.

The County has advised that the project will begin momentarily, starting with earthworks and tree removal to prepare and clear the project site for the future building. The project includes plans to replant/rehome existing trees and replace others with a greater number and variety than what currently exists on the property.

“We're excited to see this project get underway" stated Mayor James Leduc. “It's the first major component of revitalizing the Community Centre property and providing housing that is critically needed in our community".

We understand the challenges that projects of this scale pose to neighbouring residents, particularly when it comes to noise, dust and debris. We will work closely with the County throughout construction to minimize disruptions to our residents. We thank you for your patience and understanding during the development of this project.

More About the Project Site
In addition to the County's affordable housing project, this 18-acre property is part of the Community Centre Redevelopment Master Plan, adopted by Council in 2018. The Plan anticipates the addition of a Town Hall and theatre on the lands adjacent to Simcoe Road, outdoor recreation facilities, trails, and public gathering spaces.
