Is Lindsay going to lose its small-town feel?
We’ve all heard the line that towns need more growth, but I’ve never known why.
The retailers will benefit, the service industry will benefit, the tax collection will benefit but how does the common community dweller benefit?
For a number of years the provincial government seems hell-bent on marketing small-town living with the intent to get people out of Toronto. This is all well and good but it is an oxymoron in motion.
Small towns with a huge influx of people will not be small towns anymore. Lindsay is about to lose this designation.
When you look at the infrastructure it is not hard to see the complete gridlock of traffic that will occur when the proposed mega subdivisions are built. What municipal planning department sanctions these expansions?
Maybe there are no answers and development is inevitable, but the people who have lived here and who have been the tax base for this town deserve an explanation.
