Residential Development:

The way of life and natural surroundings gives us many advantages which draw people from all aspects of life; from families who want to escape city life to those looking to ease into retirement. As a result, new development ranges from multi-unit housing to custom homes to help answer the growing demand. A variety of subdivisions are being developed within our urban area, each unique in its own setting.

Commercial Development:

The Town's location, with easy access along Highway 401 to markets to the east and west and points in the United States, makes it an attractive location for commercial and industrial development. Through its policies, our Official Plan provides support for established commercial and industrial areas and coordinated development of new businesses.
