A cheque for $45,726 was sent to Mattamy Development Corporation recently-- the cost of developing the Dr. Charles Best Parkette in the new Arbor Glen subdivision. Mattamy, the developers of the subdivision, approached the Town about building the parkette themselves, rather than waiting for the Town to do it. Mattamy did such things as the preparation work, the lighting and planting. Mattamy's cost was at or below market rate, said Director of Recreation and Parks Terry Alyman. The Town installed the wood fiber play surface, play equipment and bench. The Town had budgeted $65,000 for the work, and including the Mattamy cheque spent just under $63,000. The Town is also proposing a trail be built along Black Creek in Arbor Glen to the parkette, through the open space of Stewart's Mill and then to McNally Park via some connecting walkways. The trail would be a 5-ft. wide woodchip path with signage and bollards (posts). An existing footpath will be closed
