Sandwich Towne shows arty side

The Festival got great coverage from the Windsor Star. I was able to attend Sunday and really enjoyed the experience--a great way to promote our local artists and the west-end.

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.

78 work orders have been issued in one week alone. Garbage is the main one but big or small issues are being written up.

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."

School board wants old schools off heritage list

The Greater Essex County District School Board wants the following schools removed from Windsor’s heritage register:

• W.D. Lowe (built 1923) and J.L. Forster high (1922) schools

• Hugh Beaton (1929), J.E. Benson (1915-1922)/, William G. 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.
