A resident’s perspective.
I am a resident at 19 Simmonds Drive and nearly every day I drive by the Wilson Farmhouse. It is time that this eyesore be demolished. The site should be planted with an assortment of shade trees as there is no other shade in this park.
The Wilson Farmhouse is simply an old brick house that has been painted over. It has no particular agricultural, historic or architectural value and is completely out of place in this park and this neighbourhood. Spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to “restore” this property is clearly a waste of money.
I hope I can count on you to do the right thing in not supporting the Wilson farmhouse as a heritage property. I also encourage you to confer with your fellow city council members and urge them to join with you in voting to demolish this unsightly farmhouse. GL
