Batshaw gets permit to demolish Elm Ave. building; Work must be delayed 18 months so rehab centre can find new home
Mayor David Pollock stated the Elm Ave. property is used for social services and cannot be compared to a private residence, adding that the temporary arrangement to grant an 18-month reprieve aims to accommodate both Portage and Batshaw.
“There are youth and families in our community that use that (Portage) facility,” the mayor said. “They’ve helped out a lot of families in the West Island and we recognize that.”
