Grey County 10 Year Capital Look Ahead

Grey County | by Claire McCormack  

A staff report looks at projects the County has planned for the next decade.

Grey County is looking at what kind of capital projects it needs to do over the next decade and what that will likely cost.

A report presented to Grey County Committee of the Whole (Jun 27) looks at Transportation & Public Safety,  Planning & Community Development, Corporate Services and Social Services.

In the shorter term, the report estimates the County will need to spend about about $16.1 million on capital projects in 2020, which is $965,000 more than 2019.

Over the next ten years, capital spending includes $314,000 for a general store at Grey Roots' Moreston Village, $200,000 for work on the church there, and other general upkeep of museum buildings.

Other items include replacing the county's one tourism vehicle in about 2024, and plenty of general upkeep work on numerous county housing developments and long term care homes. There is nothing planned for new builds in housing or long term care.

There is a plan to build a new $3 million dollar public works yard and garage when a current lease agreement runs out.

In terms of projected road work over the next ten years, Director of Transportation Services Pat Hoy says the big project will be $ $3.7 million to put a roundabout in at the intersection of Grey Roads 19 and 21 in the Blue Mountain Village area of Mair Mills. Half of that money is to come from Simcoe County (Simcoe Road 34).  

Other planned road work includes roughly $5 million on Grey Road 17B, $2 million on the reconstruction of Grey road 10 in Elmwood. You can find the list of many other planned road projects Here.
