The Town of Gravenhurst attended the Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) Annual Conference in Toronto, January this week and continued to engage with Provincial Ministries in regards to the Muskoka Regional Centre Redevelopment project.

Mayor Kelly said “This gathering proved to be an important opportunity for the Town to continue to engage with our Provincial counterparts in regards to the Muskoka Regional Centre development. We were able to have frank conversations with the key ministers to ensure our mandate is brought to fruition,” he said.

Scott Lucas, Director of Development Services, with the town said conversations with these Ministry’s gave us the opportunity to reiterate Council’s position of making the Muskoka Regional Centre property, one that would bring substantial full-time, year round employment to Gravenhurst and the Muskoka region.

The Town left this conference feeling very confident that the Province wants to make them an inclusive stakeholder in this process and has every intention of reaching out to a potential property investor to work with the Town to ensure our goals are met.
