Breaking Ground for New South End Emergency Services Station

October 2, 2009

Another first for Guelph — an integrated fire station, police station and land ambulance station — the first in Ontario!  The ground breaking ceremony for this new facility was attended by local, provincial and federal representatives this morning, October 2nd, at the site of the new station.  The facility is expected to be completed in the fall of 2010.  The residents of the southern part of Guelph have been waiting a long time for this new site to come to fruition.  The ceremony was attended today by Todd and Lynda Dennis, representing the Clairfields Neighbourhood Group.
