City Paying More Attention to University Neighborhoods

A recent post from a colleague of mine who sells real estate properties..."Last two weeks an inspection blitz was being conducted by City of Windsor Building Compliance Officers around the university area.

Please ensure to pass this information along to all your tenants, other landlords and residents in the area to keep your property free and clear of garbage."

Davis (1966), Prince Edward (1921), Marlborough (1929), David Maxwell (1927), Gordon McGregor (1924) and Queen Victoria (1922) public schools.J.L. Forster, J.E. Benson and Marlborough are all located in the west-end. In addition, St. Francis--located in Sandwich Towne--is closing this year. This is not good news for our grade school and high school students, and for the west-end community.
