At a hearing two weeks ago the Ontario Municipal Board, now called the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal, decided to dismiss the appeal of the Parry Sound Mall regarding the relocation of the RBC to the south end. This means all appeals have been exhausted and the RBC can move to the Oastler Park development beside the Walmart.

I understand that the Parry Sound Mall’s presentation was less than compelling. I sat in for the first twenty minutes of the appeal and realizing that it was game over headed back to work. I hope the Downtown is prepared to deal with the consequences of this decision and what is likely to follow.
