Area residents interested in the future of Glen Abbey Golf Course are invited to attend a public open house, which will be held by the Town on Wednesday, Jan. 10.

The event will take place in Oakville Town Hall’s Oakville-Trafalgar Room from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and give those who attend the opportunity to learn about some of the measures the Town is considering to protect the Glen Abbey site.

Public attention has been focused on the 1333 Dorval Dr., property ever since Glen Abbey Golf Course owner ClubLink brought forward an application for a zoning change that would allow it to construct 3,222 residential units, 69,000 sq. ft of commercial/retail space and 107,000 sq. ft of office space.

Many residents have voiced concerns about the loss of the golf course and the additional traffic the development would bring to the area.

Oakville Town’s Council voted unanimously on Sept. 27 to reject that development application and the matter will soon come before the Ontario Municipal Board.

Given the golf course’s history within the community, the town carried out a cultural landscape assessment, which found the property to have local, provincial and national significance.

Council voted unanimously Dec. 20 to designate the property under the Ontario Heritage Act.

The measures being discussed Jan. 10, including a proposed Conservation Plan, are intended to restrict what can be developed on the site.

If passed, the plan would essentially require any proposed development on the property to first receive the approval of the Town.

A special Planning and Development Council meeting to consider the final Conservation Plan and related bylaws will take Tuesday, Jan. 30.
