Town Purchases Property to Address Parking Needs in Thornbury

Posted On: Tuesday, June 16, 2020

The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to advise the public that at the June 15, 2020 Council Meeting, The Blue Mountains Council approved the purchase of Lot 15 and Lot 17 on Arthur Street West in Thornbury with the purpose of providing a formalized parking area for downtown Thornbury.

Town Purchases Property to Address Parking Needs in Thornbury

Council unanimously approved the purchase of the properties in open session by a 6 – 0 vote in the amount of $895,000, which will be funded from eligible development charges. The negotiation for the purchase of the properties was the topic of several closed session Council meetings.

“The purchase of these properties is critically important to the future success and development of the downtown Thornbury area,” explained Mayor Alar Soever.

“The particular properties have been considered as an ideal location for parking for a number of years by the Town, and Council is pleased that we were able to obtain this property that will help to address the significant parking issues in downtown Thornbury.

The COVID-19 crisis and the lack of space for dealing with proper social distancing on our main street have served to highlight the need for additional parking space in our downtown core, and Council agreed that now was the time to address the parking issue.”

The closing date for the property is August 2020, or earlier if possible, and it is anticipated that the removal of the structures will take place shortly thereafter.

The details of future construction design and the future parking lot construction capital project will be brought to Council for consideration in the near future.

For more information, please contact: Alar Soever Mayor (519) 599-3131 ext. 400
