Cornwall, ON—The Concerned Citizens Coalition will be holding a public meeting at the Air Force Wing on Thursday, February 28th at 6:30 pm. The Minister of Health has encouraged us to bring forward a “Community Proposal” regarding the future use of the General Hospital and that is what we intend to do.
We have been instructed by the Hospital Board to bring our proposal directly to Re/Max and, Mr. Jamie Cameron from Re/Max, has confirmed he will be at our meeting. This will be an opportunity for public consultation and we will be handing him our conditional “Offer to Purchase”, on that evening.
Our concern is that the building must be used for the common good and social benefit of our area with the focus on seniors. Long term care, wheelchair accessible housing, supportive housing, seniors housing and dementia care are just some of the areas of concern.
Our offer to purchase will be based upon a similar initiative in Barrie Ontario called Victoria Village.
