GUELPH — Neighbours and environmentalists are irked by plans to expand municipal parking in front of the Guelph Youth Music Centre downtown, saying it threatens mature trees and the area’s historic flavour.
A public meeting Thursday may explore a compromise to allow development while also preserving heritage.
The meeting is scheduled at 7 p.m. at the centre on Cardigan Street downtown, a historic lowland area that’s home to the Goldie Mill ruins along the Speed River.
