Grand Falls House is still a hot topic among Grand Falls-Windsor council.
It came up on more than one occasion during the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor regular council meeting tonight.
Committee reports from Public Works and Planning, Economic Development and Tourism, Committee of the Whole, Finance and Administration, and Parks, Recreation and Special Events were given.
The Economic Development and Tourism minutes as well as the Committee of a Whole minutes discussed Grand Falls House.
During the Economic Development and Tourism meeting on Nov. 18, the economic development officer presented some information on the possibility of designating Grand Falls House as a Provincial Heritage site. There was also discussion of a National designation.
“The committee reviewed the materials and will keep this under advisement as they address the options should the Town acquire the property in the future,” the minutes state.
Councillor Amy Coady-Davis, chair of the Economic Development and Tourism committee told the Advertiser the Economic Development Officer Gary Hennessey is further reviewing heritage designation and will return to committee when he has more information.
Also during the Committee of a Whole meeting on Nov. 19, the committee reviewed the property assessment report on the Grand Falls House as presented by Exploits Engineering.
Deputy Mayor Barry Manual told the Advertiser the house is in good shape considering its age, though they need further environmental and hazmat assessments before making a decision.
