Linley Valley Acquistion Completed

At the Oct. 20 City Council meeting, staff were authorized to complete the acquisition of the final two properties associated with the Linley Valley Parkland Acquisition Program. Direction was given to acquire 5600 Vanderneuk Road and 3842 Stronach Ave. for a total price of $2 million. The lands are a combined 50.4 acres in size and will transfer to the City on October 29, 2014.

In total, 177.5 acres of new parkland will have transferred to the City by the end of October 2014 at a cost of $5.66 million.  The Linley Valley park system will expand to 405 acres as a result of this year's acquisitions.

  1. They spent about $2 million less than planned so why can they not use $900,000 from that to make the intersection at Boundary and Northfield safer???
