Villages Of Sally
Creek Retirement Community
The Villages of Sally Creek is named after the cold-water creek, which winds through the site. Sally Creek Environs Corporation President, Ralph Rodgers is proud to announce that the Brantford, Ontario based development corporation completed its purchase of the former Oxford Regional Centre Site (West) in Woodstock, Ontario, from the provincial government on Friday, October 29, 1999. Restoration Environmental Contractors will be the Project Managers for the Environmental Remediation for the site.
The development of this 230-acre property is covered with large mature trees and beautiful green areas, all the trees will be preserved during the new construction. Also located throughout the site are many heritage buildings, these heritage buildings will all be restored and renovated. This retirement community development will contain residential, institutional and neighbourhood commercial uses including detached and semi-detached homes, town homes, apartments and condominiums as well as a long-term health care centre including a retirement home, nursing home and cognitive care centre. Mr. Rodgers stated that the theory behind the development is to provide a continuum of care that will enable residents to age in a place according to their health and lifestyle requirements.
The site will be the subject of extensive environmental remediation, which began last week and is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2000. At that time site servicing and construction of the first phase of development will begin.
Upon its completion, Mr. Rodgers stated that The Villages of Sally Creek is expected to be home to over 2,200 residents and will provide over 400-500 permanent jobs within the community. "We will benefit not just future residents of the site but Oxford County as a whole", said Mr. Rodgers.
