Moving into Deep River
County of Renfrew administration building, Laurentian Valley Township
The process to purchase property for a new paramedic base station in Deep River is moving along.
At the recent development and property meeting Kevin Valiquette, manager of real property for the county of Renfrew, provided a project update.
He informed the committee that county staff is proceeding with the property purchase from the Deep River and District Hospital. A request for proposal for the construction of the base is being prepared with an anticipated May 1, 2013 construction start date. The hope is that the project will be completed by Oct. 31, 2013.
A property survey has been completed and submitted for registration and preliminary site-plan drawings have been submitted to the Town of Deep River for review and feedback.
A forestry management plan for the property is now being prepared by Jeff Muzzi, the county’s forestry manager.
Letters and information packages are being prepared for all adjacent landowners.
Last month, the committee informed the Town of Laurentian Hills that the county would be moving its land ambulance station from Chalk River to adjacent to the Deep River hospital.
