City looking for land to improve roads, build sewer and watermains in south end


The city is set to begin negotiation and expropriation proceedings to acquire two properties necessary to construct the McKay Road West trunk sanitary sewer and roadway improvements, along with the Veterans Drive trunk watermain projects, in south-Barrie.

Councillors gave initial approval to this action Monday night and city council will consider final approval at its June 28 meeting.

Acquiring these properties  922 and 918 Veterans Dr.  is necessary for construction of the road widening, new trunk sanitary sewer and trunk watermains needed to service the proposed Watersand and H&H developments in the McKay Road West and Veterans Drive area, west of Highway 400.
