The Wilson farm house is still standing this morning. And maybe for a while yet, after Guelph City Council last night was unable to decide what to do with the building.
City staff has recommended that the building be demolished and the land it sits on, incorporated into the near-by park. The majority of the 28 delegations that appears before council last night opposed that idea, and want the house preserved.
After a series of votes, many of which ended in a tie, council couldn’t even agree to defer the issue to a future meeting.
Construction will be starting at South End Community Park tomorrow.
The project will include new washroom facilities and a splash pad, the widening of the existing stone
laneway, landscaping and two barrier-free parking spaces.
Community feedback from an open house last April, helped the city determine preferred water features
for the splash pad, and the layout for the washroom and change room facility.
The city plans to open the new facility next summer.
