Condo will grow Haliburton
To the Editor,
Re: Wallings Way
Our parents have spent the past 40 plus years making Haliburton their home and do not have a single regret in the choice they made to relocate their young family from Toronto all those years ago.
Haliburton has provided them a career (Mike’s Milk, Michael’s Restaurant) and the family life that they wanted for their kids. Retirement has been comfortable, but as you get older the demands of a large property can be a burden. They have always kept their property in pristine condition both as a sense of pride for themselves and the county that they live in. Faced with the decision to sell, and possibly move away, it was a great day for them when the proposal of Wallings Way was brought forth. They would now be able to stay where they have lived for the greater part of their lives, and with this project they also feel they will be able to share that great property with others and open up lake living to more people.
While we do understand that it is normal for people to fear change, the world we live in is evolving and unfortunately most can’t succeed living in the past. This project will bring multiple benefits to Haliburton. Addition property tax revenue along with the benefits local businesses will gain by having more housing closer to town is just the start. For those who feel it is not needed, the 15 deposits already put down on the units indicate the opposite. Haliburton needs to grow and this project is a great start.
The development group has been involved in exceptional properties throughout Haliburton County and Wallings Way looks like it will rank right up near the top.
We all look forward to keep coming back to Haliburton for many years to come sharing more memories with our parents and our kids, as we totally believe the saying that you can take the boy out of Hali, but you can’t take the Hali out of the boy.
