“This is the first expansion of our business park,” said South Dundas mayor Steven Byvelds following the passing of a by-law to authorize the sale.
Dwayne Sprague of Home Hardware in Morrisburg purchased two acres of land “sitting at the northwest area of VanAllen Road and what would be the Campbell Street extension,” said chief executive officer Stephen McDonald. The sale price was $15,000 per acre.
Sprague and wife Lloya took over the Morrisburg Home Hardware on July 18, 2011.
According to McDonald’s report, the property in question had originally been reserved for the Dog Park, but with the Dog Park finished and located on the Morrisburg Waterfront, the land was once again available.
“The availability of this property was discussed with the new owners of Home Hardware in late 2011,” reported McDonald. “The owners are now ready to complete the transaction with a covenant that they will proceed with development within three years.”
