Land transfer between province & Oakville will keep Merton Lands protected

The remnants of the Merton Lands, including Deerfield Golf Club, will stay as protected green space, according to the Town of Oakville, after it purchases the property from the province. 

The announcement was made Thursday night, March 22, by Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn at Deerfield. 

The area includes lands that were leased by the Province of Ontario to Deerfield and the sale was contingent on the protection of recreation and conservation lands. 

“We saw what happened when the previous government sold the Saw-Whet Golf Course to the private sector. I am proud that the Ontario government … will protect this valuable green space,” said Flynn.

Changes Set to Affect Drivers in Oakville

Drivers and cyclists, there are 15 new reasons to pay attention when you’re on the road in Oakville in 2018.

Some changes could be kicking in this month.

Fifteen pedestrian crossovers are being installed across town. 

The first four will be placed in March, weather permitting. 

It’s part of the town's pedestrian safety program, approved by council in October 2017. It recommends more than 170 pedestrian crossover locations to be implemented over the next 10 to 15 years. 

"Council is committed to improving pedestrian options and safety for Oakville's residents and visitors," said Mayor Rob Burton. 

"Oakville is becoming even more walkable and livable with the ongoing addition of new pedestrian crossovers."
