Own a piece of OTMH history

People can own a piece of Oakville’s history by purchasing a limited edition reclaimed brick from the now closed Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) on Reynolds Street. 

The former OTMH closed in 2015, after serving the Oakville community for 65 years. 

Proceeds from the sale of reclaimed bricks will go to the Oakville Hospital Foundation to support the ever growing and changing health care needs of a much larger and more advanced hospital. 

The idea to sell old bricks to raise money for the new hospital started about two years ago, said Chris Coderre, vice-president and investment adviser at Caldwell Securities Ltd., as a way of giving something back to the community.

No extra green space preservation for Brantwood school site

Area residents will not be seeing extensive green space preserved at the former Brantwood Public School site. 

Oakville’s Planning and Development Council voted Monday (Dec. 4) to approve a development plan for the property that will see the building of seven detached dwellings fronting onto Douglas Avenue; the conversion of the front portion of the school building into four to nine condominium apartment units; and the creation of a parkette at the corner of Douglas and Palmer avenues. 

The Halton District School Board closed the 221 Allan St. school back in 2010 and sold it to the Town of Oakville in 2012.

Oakville residents' associations call on town to preserve Brantwood green space

Several local residents’ associations are calling on Oakville council to take another look at the future of the Brantwood Public School site, which is currently on course for residential development. 

The Halton District School Board closed the 221 Allan St. school back in 2010 and sold it to the Town of Oakville in 2012. 

Options for the future use of the property were explored in the town’s South Central Public Lands Study and in 2013, following extensive public consultation, council endorsed a recommendation that the property be redeveloped.
