...Town must keep the modern towers and cookie cutters off the Main Street

We purposely purchased in Grimsby On The Water (a resale home and 3 pre-constructions) where you see mostly cookie cutter townhomes & stand alone homes. We understand the value of preserving the history, character & beauty of a town’s main street.

We have another home in Cobourg, Ontario where the town has preserved and continues to focus on the historical integrity & significance of their main street while dedicating actions to exhibit the beauty. To do this a town must keep the modern towers and cookie cutters off the Main Street, beautify the main street with a future plan that enhances the history, functionality without losing the charm.

We were surprised Grimsby didn’t have more parks in and around the main street plus that the main street didn’t appear to receive the attention it deserves. We are encouraged that there is a Save Main Street initiative and hopefully the planning department along with town officials will support these efforts to save the main street.
