The Collingwood G&M Hospital has said that they support Councillor Lloyd’s Notice of Motion that will be tabled at the Collingwood Council’s meeting next week.
The context of the motion is to direct Town of Collingwood staff to commence the process to consider revisions to the town’s official plan and zoning by-laws to include hospitals and other related medical uses as may be necessary to support the redevelopment of the hospital on their preferred site.
CGMH Board Chair Thom Paterson hopes Council will vote in favour of the motion: “Collingwood Council’s approval would be a concrete demonstration of their support for our Stage 1 submission for the redevelopment of the Hospital. By providing land use approvals for a hospital to be built on the Poplar Sideroad site, the Town works collaboratively with the Hospital in moving forward on the submission of our Stage 2 proposal to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. This action will allow the Ministry to make the decision on the best site for patient care today and well into the future.”
The motion will be tabled at the Collingwood Council’s March 13th meeting, and it’s understood that Council will debate the motion on March 27th.
