Infrastructure Ontario recently conducted an Opportunities Assessment and Optimal Use Study for the Muskoka Regional Centre property. The study was released publicly in the summer of 2015.
The purpose of the study was to determine potential land use options for the property that will result in economic benefit to the Town of Gravenhurst and the Province of Ontario. The land use options must also create employment.
Options for the future use of the former Muskoka Regional Centre were considered. The Town of Gravenhurst, residents and other stakeholders were consulted to ensure the redevelopment is consistent with the community's priorities. This feedback was incorporated into the report.
Outreach and consultation with the Town of Gravenhurst, residents and other stakeholders is an important component of the study.
The property has been declared surplus by the Ontario government.
Photo Gallery: MRC Open House - February 28, 2017 will appear here on the public site.
On February 28, 2017 an Open House was held at the Gravenhurst Opera House by Joint Venture partners in the Muskoka Regional Centre redevelopment project. It was an opportunity for the public to learn more about the proponents (Maple Leaf Schools and Knightstone Capital Management) and their plans to redevelop the site into an Educational Institute for Chinese students hoping to study in Canada and Gravenhurst specifically, (the home of Norman Bethune). Presentations were given by Howard Balloch, Vice Chair of the Maple Leaf Educational Systems and Alan Perlis, Chief Operating Officer with Knightstone Capital Management Inc. Glen Davies, Chief Administrative Officer with the Town also offered insight and provided further detail.
