City announced 950-units to Killaly/West Side Road area

Residents of Port Colborne, you could have 950 new neighbours shortly.

The City of Port Colborne recently announced a deal that will see a residential development of over 950 units coming to Port Colborne south of Killaly Street West and west of West Side Road. The proposal features a mix of units, including 219 single detached homes, 173 townhouse units, 570 medium density lots.

All told the development will stretch over 50 hectares, including over 20 hectares of open space/recreation area.

“It’s great news for the city, and quite frankly, it’s well overdue,” said mayor Vance Badawey.

The development is currently known as Rosemount Estates.

Badawey said the developers, from Toronto, attribute the city’s desire to “invest in itself” as reasons why they’re eager to develop in the city.

“We’re on the map,” he said, pointing out that it was an entire group effort in bringing the development to the city.

“It’s not just one or six or eight people, it’s due to the entire community,” he said. Badawey attributed the city’s ability to secure the development to its work on Main Street, its community improvement plans, and the new Vale Health and Wellness Centre.

The city must pass bylaw changes to allow the development. Details of the proposed changes can be found on the city’s website.

Next Monday the city will be holding a public meeting to allow residents to have their input about the potential development. The meeting will take place ahead of the regularly scheduled committee of the whole/council meeting, and will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers at city hall.
