Description
Full Text

The Town has leased the Devereaux House to the Friends of Devereaux House for five years, at $1 a year. The old farmhouse, located within the Trafalgar Rd. Sports Park, was saved from demolition last year by the citizens' group, which plans to restore the building for community use. The current estimate to refurbish the building is $300,000. So far the group has raised $27,000 in donations and grants, and $45,000 in pledges from the Georgetown Soccer Club.

That club will also rent the upper floor of the Devereaux House. Halton Hills Hydro and the Friends will also use the House to showcase energy efficiency and conservation. The Town will retain final approval of the layout, design and construction of the proposed upgrades. Council also agreed to donate the funds, which had been allocated to demolition of the building-- about $60,000-- to the Friends' fund-raising campaign
