The Council of the Corporation of the Town of Collingwood will hold a public meeting on Monday, September 30, 2019 at 5:00 PM in the Council Chambers. The proposed Official Plan Amendment is to increase the maximum number of residential dwelling units permitted in Balmoral Village.

On August 21, 2019, The Town of Collingwood’s Parks, Recreation, and Culture Department met with the Children’s Treatment Network at the Collingwood Public Library to engage with youth on the design of a new playground facility at Sunset Point Park.
Footings, supports, and electrical wiring have been installed in August. However, the timeline on this 2019 project has unfortunately been delayed due to a difficulty our contracted builder is experiencing with a back-order on some crucial crossover parts. This pedestrian crossover project will be completed early this Fall.
UPDATE: Heritage Drive Paving Project will continue on Wednesday, August 28 (weather permitting).
Road Paving will occur on Heritage Drive from Waterside Lane to the Marina Parking Lot. Heritage Drive will remain open, including access to the Boat Launch and Yacht Club, but may be limited to single lane intermittently throughout the construction project. Expect traffic delays on Heritage Drive. People are also asked to avoid the Walking/Cycling Trail along Heritage Drive during the construction project. Safety first!
