For residents and businesses in Hespeler Village it's been a long challenging summer. Construction has been constant however as the project nears completion the progress is amazing! I am proud and humbled by the stoic optimism from the local business community here in the Village. These small family run businesses continue to work without complaint and their dedicated customers continue to brave the disruptions to parking, sidewalks and detours on Queen Street and the surrounding neighborhoods.
We would be remiss not to make mention of the efforts of City staff, IBI and Sousa Construction who have been working tirelessly to ensure this ambitious project finishes on time and on budget. The below picture captures the spirit and care the team has taken all season long in this sensitive and challenging work environment. There is an old Proverb that states "It takes a Village" and Hespeler is one of those rare communities where it still holds true today.
