I'd guess crackerbox houses. That's what is going up all around there.

you're probably right, and it's really really sad. I miss trees. Fields. monarch butterflies are becoming extinct. can you imagine that? our grandkids not knowing what the hell a monarch looks like, aside from a picture? well...i guess i don't *really* know what a platypus looks like...sigh. let's elect David Suzuki for PM.

what the hell are you guys talking about ??

first off the concert area and the molson house will still be there, its the acres upon acres of open field that will be developed into manufacturing, molson park is too big, and is never used

one more time.........the stage is owned by another group who purchased it over 2 years ago and they are keeping it here

another note

one person of the group that owns the area that has the concert stage is none other than dan aykroyd

there is about 200 acres, of molson park, 50 acres are still being held for entertainment purposes

so once again the concert area is, and will stay there


the rest of the land doesnt affect the concert area

ummm... if it turns into a residential area, won't that affect the amount of noise that can carry past 11 though? which would, unless i'm mistaken, limit the duration of concerts held there...

Wasn't it actually sold a couple years ago?
I remember hearing something about this last summer ... how The Edge was going to have to look for a new place to have their EdgeFests because Molson Park was being sold

As per a CTV report the other day, Barrie has one of the highest occupancy rates in Ontario, something like 99.5%. The Government reports that a 5% vacancy is nessisary to promote a competitive market. Some residents of Barrie have been forced to live with relatives because there just aren't available housing. I would think that they will be putting in condo's and crackerbox housing because they want to cram those people in, and they will buy.

UB.

P.S. I would think that the new residential area would have an effect on the parks 'noise level'.

it will NOT be residental, it is going to light manufacturing and retail

we are trying to attract more manufacturing jobs, with the recent loss of alloy wheels, and molsons, we need some new jobs this way

the re-zoning is taking place, in a few weeks, the area itself, is smack right in the middle of our manufacturing area, and therefore, will NOT be housing

Although Molson Park is included in the sale, it will be business as usual for the concert venue, said Devins.

Mayor Jim Perri and city administration met with representatives of North American at the invitation of Molson Canada in Toronto on Monday. Although the deal hasn't been finalized yet, Perri said he's excited about the possibilities
It's one of the largest development companies in North America," he said. "They're looking at retail commercial, a business portion, light industry. All of these sections are what we're looking for and we've been pushing that we need more of these light industrial or industrial (areas).

"We'd like to have more business parks, and of course, commercial retail has not hurt the City of Barrie.

"All of this will help the tax base for Barrie."

The company has assets and interests in more than 20 million square feet of property throughout Canada and the United States, including hotels and convention centres.

"When we heard that, we emphasized that the City of Barrie does require a hotel and convention centre," said Perri.

"This company seems to be in that mixture, so it's a possibility."

Last year, Molson sold its 135,000-square-foot plant and about 35 acres of surrounding property to Rosten Investments Inc., a bottling company. Rosten has yet to reopen any portion of the plant, but last fall predicted it would be in operation by the summer of 2002.

*sigh of relief*

that concert WAS the highlight of the park, but don't neglect the performace Koala did... though not as good as radiohead, it was still quite sweet

how can you even mention kid koala and radiohead in the same sentence, let alone compare them?

sacrilegious fool!

the only thing radiohead could have done better was toned it down a notch .. because now i know that i have hit the pinnacle of concerts

it's all downhill from here.

How can you saw that Radiohead was the highlight of Molson Park?
What about all of the Lollapalooza's and Another Roadside Attractions ... etc ...

Rule: when speaking of Radiohead, everything else is negligible
