Please Save Cayuga Court House Grounds ~ Parkland, Museum, Archives & 1835 Log Cabin

This petition had 1,558 supporters

Help save the peoples' parkland on the historic 165-year-old County Court House Grounds in Cayuga, Ontario.  Haldimand County councillors have voted to sell to private developers the Administration Building and the approximately ten acres of riverfront property of mature and newly planted trees.  This parcel of land was patented by Queen Victoria in 1851 to the "Municipal Council and their assigns for ever," -  "In Trust" for public use, it remains a treasured green space.  Despite the historic encumbrance on the land, today's councillors are forging ahead with residential zoning.  Generations of families tobogganed on the hill, walked and picnicked in the park and attended events.  The Haldimand County Museum and Archives and the 1835 log cabin are located on the grounds - their future uncertain.  Once gone, this green space can never be recovered.  Please help save this parkland by signing this petition.  We, and generations to come, will thank you.
