  • The Wellington Advertiser - Residents working together to make Arthur a better place to be
    was due to the good work of the Arthur Betterment Committee Kelly said that Stempski Kelly Associates are rural planners and landscape architects We do a lot of work like this in many communities Wellington North has really come alive in understanding how to embrace community groups and economic development to the broader community so that projects like this can actually be achieved He said it is hard to believe the number of communities looking to undertake projects like this one yet they do not have economic development officers betterment committees or business improvement associations They re all looking for the same thing how to differentiate themselves He said all communities want to do great things but have limited resources Kelly said part of getting those resources is to have a game plan ready He then did a play by play of what community improvement plans are what they do and similar plans in nearby areas He stressed a community improvement plan is not a physical design of your community Kelly said it is a framework to rehabilitate commercial buildings and their facades improvement of commercial signage and the redevelopment of vacant and under utilized properties and buildings First and foremost this is a resource He explained when projects arise communities will have had to have done their homework This enables a lot of the work to be done for the private community He understood that council is always being told of the public projects that need to be done such as parks and street scapes This however allows for work on a single building facade It s not just the town doing everything the people who ve bought into this still need to keep their own buildings up He also considers the plan as a motivator and incentive for private investment Kelly added No one is going to have everything paid for All the municipality is going to do is help out which in its own sense is a motivator He suggested a facade grant may be only 2 200 to 2 400 While it may take a while to get things going Once people start to see good things going in their neighbours buildings it motivates them to do more He said it is also a stimulator for business He cited the success of the facade improvement to Harriston Bakery in Minto The owners applied for a facade grant to improve the front of the building They took an entrance that was pretty nondescript which contributed very little to the street Since then the owners have seen a marked increase to business They said their business doubled in a matter of months because people knew they were there His presentation was followed by a session in which participants considered strengths weakness opportunities and threats to the community and the downtown area Since it is a Wellington North project Kelly said the plan would encompass Arthur and Mount Forest He is also hoping to have the work completed by

  • The Wellington Advertiser - St. Josephs parish to dedicate impressive new church on Sept. 11
    St Joseph the carpenter might have appreciated in particular the Stations of the Cross Duffy explained they were copied from 17th century German woodcuts The altar is also decorated with motifs that tie the church to the Fergus community Duffy said it is probably the most significant part of the church The marble topped structure contains four symbols carved into it They are front a maple leaf symbolizing St Joseph s status as Patron Saint of this country back the lily a Marion symbol as Joseph was the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary side a thistle to show the connection to Fergus founded as a Scottish community and reminding us we have a duty to preach the good news to our community and the other side a shamrock symbolizing the first Catholic immigrants to come to Fergus and establish a Catholic Church Finally there are relics from three saints set beneath the altar Those are Marguerite Bourgeoys the first Canadian born saint Marguerite d Youville the founder of the Sisters of Notre Dame and André Bissette Canada s newest saint The tabernacle was saved from a church that was closed in the 1920s It was refurbished by DiCarlo Religious Supply Centre in Toronto While the church is not officially opened yet there appeared to be a steady stream of visitors to see how it is coming along Duffy said he finds it difficult to believe how much interest there is in the community If I go into Zehrs or Tim s someone will always comment and ask how the church is coming along he said I m amazed at the excitement of the people here The congregation broke ground for the building in May 2009 and the shovel used in that ceremony has a place of honour in the new community hall just to the side of the nave There is also a public hall to one side of the nave Duffy said it will be used for meetings and social functions It can hold up to 200 standing or with theatre seating and about 90 seated to dine It also has a fireplace Duffy called it a setting for us as parishioners to enjoy one another s company and it will be made available for wedding showers and baby showers and other social events He said there are several already booked There is a Confessional room too where people can take that sacrament in the traditional way with a barrier between them and the priest or more informally sitting in a comfortable chair and facing their confessor Besides a huge entrance area there is a large space for people to enter and socialize prior to heading into to the nave There are statues made of fibre glass coated in bronze decorating both sides of the church One is of the Madonna and Child and the other St Joseph There is an outdoor Prayer Garden on the side of the church closest to St Joseph Catholic School It has
