There are parking lots to both east and south.It can really only expand to the east, maybe. There is already a garage on the west. There is some parking to the south but a LTC building as well.
The lot to the east is easily the size of the current hospital. The one to the south is smaller but still substantial.
There are other lots in town on Davis drive that could maybe be purchased too. Almost everything across the street on the north side is already low-rise medical offices of various sorts.
The province spent $250MM plus on the rapidway barely five years ago, with a GO train stop 10 min walk away, on a line getting millions in upgrades. It is crazy to see consideration for the largest employer in town to move to a non-accessible location.
It is also highly suspicious that these green belt lands were bought by a private developer not even 2 months ago, just prior to the Province proposing this legislation. That stinks.
