There were a few interesting tidbits in today’s local newspaper that seem worth sharing:
Collingwood issued over $3 million worth of new building permits in September bringing the year-to-date total to a rather stunning $81.18 million for the first nine months of the year compared to $35 million for the same period last year. Seems growth continues despite global economic concerns.
Collingwood Council has announced a new Heritage Grant Program. Owners of designated heritage properties can apply to receive a grant toward the conservation and restoration of the heritage features of their properties. Grant amounts of one half of eligible costs up to $3,000 are available. I’ll bet this would qualify.
Oh yeah, and they are also inviting applications for the position of Deputy Fire chief in case you are job hunting.
