Stouffville Chamber of Commerce – News

Local Updates

It is a welcomed breath of fresh air to learn that Whitchurch-Stouffville has engaged a new Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), who is in place and on the job.

Roman Martiuk will have an immediate and positive impact on the Town’s operations, policy development and planning. The Chamber salutes the arrival of Mr. Martiuk.

Town Council now has a Code of Conduct to live by which no doubt will stimulate some changes at Council including behaviour. We should be looking ahead to some changes in the run up to the Municipal Elections in October 2018.

The Chamber is very concerned about the impact that Main Street re-construction will have on the merchants and restaurants during the construction phase. We need to support the local businesses through this temporary but difficult period.

We look forward, with great anticipation, to the solutions the Town will endorse regarding parking and in particular, parking in the downtown core that suffers with lack of adequate parking space.

Harry Renaud

Executive Director
