Creemore Village Green Project
The Village Green project is an exceptional opportunity to create a beautiful centre for the Village of Creemore. We believe it will be a place to bring together our diverse community and serve as a cultural landmark.
The future of Creemore is close to our hearts, and it is with great consideration that we entered into this project. Community input has been vital in developing plans and has been obtained through a series of public meetings introducing the endeavour. We have engaged the services of landscape design firm PFS Studio and implemented a ‘Build Committee’ of dedicated local people to oversee the planning. Local landscaping firm, Natural Blends is playing a large role, helping to make the community vision a reality.
We expect the construction will be completed in fall 2021 with planting to occur when seasonably appropriate, likely in the spring of 2022. The estimated cost of the design, planning, and construction of the Village Green is $2.8 million.
The foundation is raising $4.0 million to construct the Village Green and to create a reserve fund for programming and facility maintenance. A smaller amount of capital will be available for future projects.
The Creemore Community Foundation and the Township have entered into an agreement that allows the Foundation to build the Creemore Village Green and manage it for the next 20 years. We will be hiring a Program Manager whose primary responsibility will be to organize events, publicize activities and work with various community organizations to support their goals.
Getting the Village Green constructed, planted and programmed is a big job and is the primary focus of the foundation at this time. We look forward to enjoying it with you soon!
