Question 2 of 10 from Resident Frank J. Veen
Question: What’s more important for our city right now: building new homes and commercial space or rehabbing/expanding/better utilizing our existing homes and storefronts?
My Answer: Whitchurch-Stouffville has expanded a great deal, we have grown to be such a beautiful multi-cultural town. It is wonderful to see people are wanting to move to Whitchurch-Stouffville, therefore we must keep up with the demand of building new homes. In regards to storefronts, when I have spoken to Business owners on Main Street they would like to have some type of financial support to update their store fronts.
The Town Staff and Council need to look at the scheduling of all planned and proposed development to ensure this is done in a beneficial way for our residents and for the Town. Planning, timing, and seeing what is proposed to makes sure it makes sense for the long run.
