Wyandotte Town Centre BIA Supports LPAT Appeal
The Wyandotte Town Centre BIA is announcing their support of the appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), by Citizens for an Accountable Mega-Hospital Planning Process’ (CAMPP).
The BIA is concerned about the impact that moving the hospital will have on its businesses and neighbourhoods. Many of our businesses depend on customers who may be coming to the area because of the Windsor Regional Hospital-OuelletteCampus. The hospital leaving the core would ensure good paying jobs are leaving with it, and another large vacant building, such as the Windsor Arena, will be left in our urban core not repurposed.
“The hospital is not only critical to the area because of the services it provides, but it is also an integral institution which impacts our businesses and neighbourhoods. The moving of the hospital will only add to the problems we are already facing such as vacant store fronts, crime, and blight. We are working hard to revitalize our area, and this would be a major setback.” – Wade Griffith, Chair Wyandotte Town Centre BIA
The BIA will be supporting the appeal by donating $1000.
