King City wetland to stay a wetland...

Village marsh is provincially significant wetland
I've wondered for some time what might become of the marsh and wetlands between the new King Township Administrative Centre, opposite the King City Cemetery, and the Royal Collection condominium apartments, on the south-west corner of the King Road and Burns Boulevard.   The two photos here show the marsh from the east and the west.   I gave Chris Fasciano, King's Director of Parks, Recreation and Culture a call to get his word on the status of the area.   Chris quickly pointed out that the marsh/wetlands have been designated by Ontario as 'Provincially Significant Wetlands', a designation of areas identified by the province as being most valuable and as such will not be developed in the future.   Sounds good to me.

Please comment if you wish.
