I truly believe this project will be hugely beneficial for King City and all of the Township. The investment in our core-areas will continue to promote King Township as a top place to live in all of Canada. This investment will also attract businesses to enter our core-areas and provide new goods and services for residents. As well as provide employment opportunities all while shifting the burden of property taxes from you the homeowners.
Another important note is that King Township is leveraging our investment by taking advantage of many grants from York Region which has helped make this project impactful and cost effective for the ratepayers. I will continue to fight for positive changes that enhance the quality of life for residents all while being mindful of the budget.
