BWG receives court costs

  • CA BWGPL PH26538

Municipality :
Community : Bradford West Gwillimbury
Lot :
Concession :
Description : The Drainage Referee dismissed an appeal by the Town of New Tecumseth, East Gwillimbury, King Township, Caledon, and Newmarket, opposing a 1-time levy against upland properties that drain into the Holland Marsh. The levy was sought to help pay for improvements to the Holland Marsh Drainage Scheme, proposed by the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury. The multi-million dollar proposal calls for the relocation of the canals, for both flood control and life safety reasons. As a result of the Referee's decision, Bradford West Gwillimbury is entitled to ask for costs resulting from the legal challenge -- and has already recieved a cheque for $10,000 from New Tecumseth, which decided it would be cheaper to pay the legal bill, than to go back to court and argue over costs. The project is now moving ahead. A joint committe with Kin Twp. will meet January 27.

Community : Bradford
Lot :
Concession :
Description : In this, its 57th year of community service, the Bradford Lions Club still abides by the Lions International slogan, "We Serve." This year - 1994 - marks the 40th anniversary of Hurricane Hazel, which hit the Holland Marsh and the Town of Bradford. Nineteen fifty-four was also an important year for the Bradford Lions. Forty years ago, the Lions held their Mammoth Car Draw, the first prize being a Cadillac Sedan DeVille. The price of the Caddie at that time was around $5,000. Tickets cost $25, and the winner was William Mulholland of Toronto. This year, the Cadillac will cost approximately $45,000. There will also be about $20,000 in cash given away in the elimination draw. Only 1,700 tickets are sold at $75 each. You could be a winner, if you have a ticket! They are available from any member of the Bradford Lions Club. Also back in 1954, the Town of Bradford was in the process of building a new
Community Centre, and the Lions Club donated $15,000 towards the Centre. Forty years later, the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury will be making major alterations to the
Community Centre. The Bradford Lions Club has already pledged $140,000 towards this project. This year, and in conjunction with the Car Draw Week, the Bradford Lions and Bond Head Lions Clubs will be holding a Monster Bingo on Wednesday, September 7th at 7 p.m. - in the newly renovated
Community Centre, which is slated to be opened by the end of August. Your purchase of tickets to either of these events would be greatly appreciated.

Destroying local history

Municipality :
Community : Bradford

Description : To the Editor:
It seems the town of Bradford is establishing a reputation for rapid change and with it a wanton disregard for its valuable old buildings. I am referring to the old hotel demolished by Ingoglia Bros. and the old Wolfe farm home, more recently bulldozed on the west end of town. From previous inspection I can witness that these buildings were sound and could have continued to serve many more useful years. The building on the Ingoglia property was built about 1850 and is historically important since it was probably built as a hotel. It was a solid brick structure containing the original layout, staircase, doors, wood trim and some of the original window sash. This was a prime example of a fine early commercial building, typical of the old town of Bradford in 1850. The Wolfe farm house, c-1840, not originally located in the town, was a superb example of the early West Gwillimbury Regency style farm house. Built into the side of a hill, the single storey with living quarters in the walkout basement was a typical arrangement of the period. This gem was ceremoniously obliterated for a 'modern' subdivision. To my knowledge nothing was salvaged. The six-panel doors with original brass knobs, the panelled wainscotting, the doors and window trim, the 12 over 12 window sash, the elegantly simple front entrance with transom and rare nine panelled front door - all reduced to rubble in a matter of minutes! The panel molding on the doors was identical to that recorded on a Tecumseth township house that is now designated an historical house under the Ontario Heritage Act. Few people knew of its mud brick construction, a material commonly used in the mid nineteenth century. It had many interesting features. Is there a photograph remaining. There is no acceptable reason why both of these historically valuable buildings could not have been preserved. Some day effective legislation will prevent this shameful and thoughtless practice. In the meantime the people of Bradford and their council should do some serious soul-searching in an attempt to re-establish their priorities.
