Now that a formal application has been submitted to rezone the farmland at Mahers Landing, it is important we make Council aware of our opposition to it. This document provides you with information that will help you communicate with your local councillors and local member, Jordan Crugnale. More information can be found in this slideshow presentation prepared by Dave Sutton, Vice-President of SGCS.
