Condo reboot gets favourable reviews By MIke Williscraft NewsNow Both at an open house May 29 and at Monday’s council meeting, the Homes By DeSantis’ Century

Condos gained wide support now that it has been reset as a fourstorey project. While the scope, design, architectural themes and attention

to detail were all spoken in great favour, some concerns remain. These mainly surround parking and whether or not the design does constitute a four-sto-

rey concept. At the rear of the building, a handful of the 92 residential units proposed include loftswhich could constitute a fifth floor.

While consultant John Ariens in his opening presentation at the open house provided an overview of the project and noted, “It is in full compli-

ance of your Official Plan”, director of planning Michael Seaman begged to differ. “Our opinion is an Official Plan amendment See CONDO, Page 3

From Page 1 is required. It is five storeys,” said Seaman. While that was one concern, parking dominated the conversation at Tuesday’s open house. Parking for the revamped project comes in a 1.24 spots/unit, which comes in at .01/ unit under the Town’s requirement - less than one spot under for the whole project, said Ariens. The issue touched off a litany of comments about the state of parking throughout the core. All who commented, except Ald. Nick DiFlavio who said he saw no issue, noted parking is a major and worsening issue. Everyone on the Planning Committee voiced various concerns and Mayor Bob Bentley went so far as to suggest some of the “money in lieu” from the project might be used

to acquire land for more parking, noting the Elizabeth Street parking lot as an example. While the project, generally, received very favourable reviews, the entire initiative is predicated on DeSantis acquiring land from the Town which is now a nine-foot-wide laneway. “We think it is in the best interest of the Town to close that alleyway,” said Ariens. While resident Doug Atkinson noted during the public comment

portion of the open house that, “Grimsby now owns a million dollar laneway”, Ariens noted the Town has a process it traditionally follows for such sales but no formal policies. OMB DATE SET He cited the recent case of a public road which went through DeSantis’ Concord Place project, noting, “There was a third part assessment of the value and that is what Mr. DeSantis was going to pay. I would think this would

be the same. However, that Concord Place process will come under the scrutiny of the Ontario Municipal Board at a hearing set for Wednesday, July 11 as DeSantis is appealing the Town’s stance on the “determination of value of land”. DiFlavio, who chaired the open house as part of the Planning Committee agenda, noted the process is a full reboot so there will still be a future public meeting on the project.

Is your mortgage coming due this Summer? Let’s (not) talk rate!

When shopping for a fixed-rate mortgage, most people focus on the interest rate, with no careful scrutiny of the mortgage contract terms and conditions. But, did you know that there are actually two interest rates attached to every mortgage contract? I refer to these two equally-important rates as “the rate going in”, and “the rate going out”. “The rate going in” is the rate that gets the most attention and discussion; “The rate going out” is the rate used to calculate the prepayment penalty, should you break the mortgage prior to its maturity date. Two interesting facts: - a “5-year fixed-term” mortgage is the term of choice for most homebuyers and existing homeowners; - 70% of “5-year fixed-term” mortgages are broken after 3 years & 7 months for unplanned life events such as divorce, job loss, and illness. Before you sign for what you think is a great 5-year fixed rate with your bank or credit union, ask what the “rate going out” is. And, make sure that you understand how this rate is used to calculate the penalty. Any perceived savings of a low-rate offer could possibly cost you much more in penalties, should your plans change before the 5-year term is completed. I offer you expert mortgage advice, term lengths from 6 months to 10 years, and unique mortgage solutions from over 20 mortgage providers, including the large banks and local credit unions. When you work with me, you are guaranteed that we will have the “rate going out” discussion! The best part - There is no cost to you for my service, as I am compensated by the lenders for bringing them your business. Talk to us. You’ll be impressed.

Floodplain study routine process While Niagara West has traditionally experienced very little issues with flooding, the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority wants to be prepared. The NPCA’s Greg Furtney, director of watershed management, said the study is a “housekeeping” issue

for Niagara West. He noted the entire Niagara Region is mapped to help manage flooding issues, which are much more prevalent in areas such as Welland and, more recently, Pelham. A key aspect of having current mapping in place will be the NPCA’s

Our vendors had a great time. Quite a few vendors sold out of some products by midday,” said Beamsville BIA executive director Stephanie Hicks, who manages the market. “We received a lot of positive comments about our new location.” The market has had several locations in downtown Beamsville over the years with this year planned for the east side of the Fleming Centre. “We have just over 10 full season vendors and then have some that will be every other week and others just doing some every few weeks,” noted Hicks. This Saturday, students from BDSS will be on hand to promote

their specialist high skills major hospitality program. “They will be collaborating with Pear Blossom Orchard Farms, and Kalas Family Farm. The students will be

preparing food using ingredients from the farmers,” said Hicks, among other things. The Beamsville market runs 9 a.m.-2 p.m. every Saturday until Oct. 13.

Gateway project gets Town of Grimsby support If you heard a sigh of relief coming from Grimsby town hall Monday night, it emanated from Bryan Purdy, the stalwart sup-

porter of a Gateway Centre marketing initiative. Purdy and his team at Niagara West Tourism have invested count-

less hours for well over a year trumpeting the benefit of providing tourism information at the Grimsby Gateway. Maintaining any presence at the facilty has been touch and go since Niagara Region pulled the plug on its longtime presence there in the fall of 2016. Key to any possible success for the marketing outlet was the renegotiation of a new five-year lease for the booth space, which resulted in $80,000 in savings over that time. Now the location balances its budget with support of sales in the form of racking fees, backlit signage space, video displays and other opportunities. On Monday, Grimsby came through with a package which includes booth space at

a cost of $1,200 per month until the end of December 2018. A part-time staff person will also be hired at a cost of $5,400. The proposal also cites the possible inclusion of Grimsby’s DIA with the DIA’s permanent office being located at the Gateway, its full-time staff person being relocated there. It was noted by Ald. Joanne Johnston that this has not come up for approval at the DIA as yet. Mayor Bob Bentley said he would like to see “buy in” from both the DIA and the Grimsby Chamber of Commerce. “If they decide not to, do we need to market at all? Who are we benefitting,” Bentley asked.

Grimsby churches share the love in late June The last two weeks of June, local churches of Grimsby will be reaching out to the community and bless residents and travelers alike.

We Pay Top $$ For Scrap Vehicles Used Auto & Truck Parts 9530 Silver St., Caistor Centre 905-957-8111 www.plazek.com

Wednesday June 13th, 2018 2 - 4 p.m.

Red “Love Grimsby” signs on people’s lawns are words of affirmation and encouragement for all. “We love Grimsby and

we believe God loves Grimsby as well,” said Pastor Syd Couperus of Mountainview Christian Reformed Church. Members of different congregations are invited to “pay it forward” to someone standing in line or waiting in a drive thru. Random acts of kindness are offered without anyone knowing, except the recipient. Summer block parties are thrown as a way of getting to know our neighbors. Letters of thanks to civil servants and first responders are vessels of gratitude and grace some volunteer at local charities, like Grimsby Benevolent Fund, McNally House, and local thrift stores. Donations are given to charities. Some church groups go through local parks, along creeks and the shores of Lake Ontario to clean up garbage.

Mountainview is offering a free Family Carnival on Saturday June 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Forestview Community Church is offering a free BBQ and Car Wash on Saturday June 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lakemount Worship Centre is throwing a Canada Day Party for the whole town on Saturday evening, July 1 from 7-9 p.m. There are some 15 different church communities made up of hundreds and thousands of residents who are challenged each week again to “love your neighbor as yourself.” As all prepare for summer holidays; and people spread out in every direction during late June, local churches want to bless residents, and this wonderful town of Grimsby, which they believe is loved by God.

at John Calvin School Have you wondered how Canada became the country it is today? Last year Canadians celebrated Canada 150, but what has happened over those last 150 years? How did Canada grow from a small, backwater, fledgling country with just four eastern provinces into a ten province and three territory nation that can boast of being the second largest country in the world? Where did the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba come from? What of the cities of Winnipeg, Regina, and Edmonton? Who was behind this? Who played a key role?

Visitors will experience the transformation of the school gym into a walking, talking hands-on history class and walk away with a greater understanding of how Canada really grew from ‘Sea to Sea.’ John Calvin School is located at 320 Station St. Smithville, just north of Turkstra Lumber.


g Sprin HOME IMPROVEMENT Basics of mulching Mulch is available in various forms. Like other land and garden products, mulch can go a long way toward helping plants thrive. Mulch comprises just about any material that is spread over the surface of soil. Its purpose is primarily to help soil retain moisture. In addition, mulch can staunch weed growth, keep soil cool, improve the aesthetics of garden beds, and even improve soil nutrient composition. When the right mulch is chosen, it can reduce the amount of time homeowners spend watering and weeding their gardens and insulate plants

from dramatic changes in weather. Gardeners may not realize that mulch also can prevent garden soil from becoming overly compacted, according to HGTV. This can mean beneficial earthworms can move easily through the soil, creating channels for water and depositing their nutrient-rich waste products. Gardeners can choose organic or inorganic mulch. Organic mulches are derived from natural materials that will decompose over time, lending organic matter as well as various nutrients to the soil. Organic mulches also may contain benefi-

News Now • Thursday, June 7, 2018 • Page 13 cial microorganisms that can fight against plant diseases. Inorganic mulches may be made of stones, landscape fabrics and plastic. Both types will need to be amended

THE

To work effectively, mulch should be applied in a two- to three-inch layer of material, state the experts at Old World Garden Farms. This is the ideal amount to

retain soil moisture and suppress weed growth without choking plants. Also, mulch that is too thick may make it impossible for water to penetrate, or See MULCH, Page 14

letes wouldn’t dive right into a strenuous workout at the gym, nor should novice gardeners immediately pick up a shovel and jump into digging a hole for their new tree. USE PROPER FORM Think about the mechanics of lifting weights during a workout, as home and garden tasks may mimic movements made when exercising. KEEP ITEMS CLOSE Keeping work closer to the body will reduce the need for stooping, leaning or reaching, which should cut down on pulled muscles.

Long-handled tools can help minimize reaching. Use step ladders to reach high areas or get down on padded cushions to work closer to the ground. INVEST IN TOOLS Cushioned grips and grip handles can prevent wrist fatigue, as can hand tools that keep wrists straight to improve strength and reduce repetitive motion injuries. Longhandled tools and push mowers should be as tall as the person using them. Seek out tools that keep the body in natural positions to maximize efficiency.

MULCH

grass clippings (from nonpesticide-treated lawns) can be inexpensive and versatile in garden beds. Mulch can be a versatile asset when doing gardening projects around home landscapes. And the benefits are more than just aesthetic.

Moving to Grimsby from Mississauga, the couple have spent more than three years redoing their Whittaker Avenue property with extensive gardens, shrubs and bushes. “It’s amazing how well things grow here,” said Donna, noting Grimsby has much more clay than Mississauga’s sandy loam. Nominations for this year’s Trillium Awards are open until June 25. Go to: grimsbygardenclub.ca for more information. There is no cost.

Cookin’ up support

Evan’s Ride volunteer Bob Dell (one day after having a pacemaker put in) hands off some barbecued sausages to John Mascaroni, right, at a lunch event at Turkstra Lumber in Smithville on Friday to support the ride which goes this Saturday, June 9. The event starts at J.W. Sheldrick Transportation, 2942 Thompson Road, at 9 a.m. All funds raised help local residents affected with autism spectrum disorder. Williscraft - Photo

Mental health session June 19 When the time was set for an appointment with Jennifer and Wendy McKillop, it was clear the substance of their story regarding the ill fate of Jeff – their brother, son (respectively) would draw massive attention. It did. Response and inquiries about the follow up discussion session on mental health issues - to be moderated by Flavio Iammarino - have also flooded in. The day has been set, Tuesday, June 19, with the time 7-9 p.m. in the gym at the Grimsby Activity Centre. It is free to all. Anyone experiencing issues or hoping to gain an understanding of how to help a friend or family member is welcome to attend. M.W.

Let’s get two steps in right direction Last week I had the opportunity to go to the “Meet Tony Quirk” reception at Grimsby town hall. The event was cleverly disguised at a public meeting for the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s floodplains study, so at least I got something out of it. Of course, I jest. The floodplains open house was real. The piece of promotional material put out by the esteemed Mr. Quirk regarding the event got more than a few people riled up last week. Niagara Region and NPCA officials will hash out whether or not the promotional piece constituted a violation of municipal election rules, particularly since Quirk is already a registered candidate for Grimsby’s regional councillor position again, but even to an untrained eye it was obvious. I have never seen a document with a headshot and a caption underneath, in this case, reading, “MEET TONY QUIRK Grimsby’s representative on the NPCA” when the meeting is for a flood plains study. And that doesn’t even consider the several paragraphs of bio outlining what a busy man he is. So there’s that. ****** Grimsby Council is going to get a tentative thumbs up for its passing of support for the Grimsby Gateway marketing initiative. Getting enough support for Niagara West Tourism to maintain and sustain a presence at the Gateway is a no-brainer. It always was, but when you get elected officials and bureaucrats involved, proper business sense can fly out the window. Niagara Region has experienced huge parochial issues where marketing is

MIKE WILLISCRAFT concerned, even though there is no denying the sheer volume of visitors and tourism related questions which have poured in annually at the Gateway going back to when the chamber of commerce ran the show out there. The chamber almost got crushed under the weight of doing the right thing and, without doubt, that is part of the baggage which the Town of Grimsby carries. That baggage goes back to what was supposed to be a three-year commitment from the Town of Lincoln which quickly turned in a one-year deal when they bailed out of the west end marketing plan. That left Grimsby and the chamber holding the bag and they never really did recover from that. Years later, 2016 to be exact, Niagara Region succumbs to pressure and opts to end its presence at the Gateway. Up steps Bryan Purdy, a fellow who has a quiet and professional manner in which he gets things done...and done right, I might add. His first order of business, and it took him forever, was to get a favourable lease in place for the Gateway. He eventually did. The Region still balked and dodged, even though they could

have had their cake and eaten it too with Purdy and his NWT team doing the majority of work as a team of volunteers. Months and months, meetings and emails, finally Region gets on board. Then a strange hiccup with GEDAC and, poof, it finally arrived at Grimsby Council Monday night in a nice little package. Great, right? Tens of thousands of visitors can now be steered to various locales throughout Niagara West and the rest of the region by knowledgeable local folk. Perfect. If you are one of the five people that might see Grimsby council on Cogeco or were one of the eight people in the gallery, you would know council gave the project its support not through the Town budget, but is actually drawing on GEDAC’s reserve. As well, this is only in place until Dec. 31, 2018. And that’s fine, too, but to tie future support to the Grimsby DIA and Grimsby Chamber participation is unfortunate. We could spend another three columns review DIA issues over the last couple of terms, but to put the burden of marketing the community on that group or the chamber is not right. Municipalities, Lincoln for example, have full time economic development staff who develop marketing tools and initiatives. Grimsby has nothing. What they have is a perfect opportunity to step up with a nominal amount and chart a positive course in a rapidly growing sector. Sure, council’s money is tight due to other spending problems, but this is a chance to do something right. It is hoped they take it and say, “Thanks!”
