Local BIA Opposes Location of New Mega Hospital

The Wyandotte Town Centre BIA is backing the group opposed to the location of the new acute care hospital.

It has announced it is supporting the appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal by the Citizens for an Accountable Mega-Hospital Planning Process or CAMPP.

The BIA says it is concerned about what impact moving the hospital will have on businesses and neighbourhoods indicating that many of its businesses depend on customers heading to the area because of the Ouellette Campus.

It points out the hospital leaving the core also means good paying leaving the area.

CAMPP appealed the city's decision to rezone the land off County Rd. 42 and the 9th Concession to pave the way for the new mega hospital.

The issue is still before the tribunal.
