THANK YOU for SAVING GLEN ABBEY

MESSAGE from WLO CHAIR, DOUG McKIRGAN 
By now many of you will have  heard that ClubLink has withdrawn its appeals over its proposal for residential and commercial property development on the Glen Abbey Golf Course. It has committed to continue operating the property as a golf course. It did so after both the Halton Region and the Town of Oakville formally requested intervention from the Provincial Government, and our government responded accordingly.    

This outcome is proof that determined and persistent action on the part of citizens and local government can deliver! All of you who sent  letters to Queen’s Park through Save Glen Abbey’s website should  feel proud. Well done, all of you! And congratulations also to the core volunteers of the Save Glen Abbey community  group. They led the citizen action. We Love Oakville was honoured to support them.

I would be wrong if I did not warn that the idea of developing the Glen Abbey Golf Course may resurface sometime in the future. Land-use is never  permanent. It is always dependent on the intersection of public sentiment and the wishes of private owners. Those of us who care about  preserving this remarkable green space in the heart of Oakville will need to keep paying attention.
