Aldi’s steady progress for a Dundas location
Will Aldi’s be coming to Dundas? Administrator John McCarthy is careful about saying it’s a done deal, however, “the process is moving along. Normally we would require a Planned Unit Development for that type of a project. That, basically, allows the Developer to do some things we normally wouldn’t allow but also allows us to ask the Developer to do some things that we would like done”. McCarthy said in this case, “Aldi’s does not appear to need any special favors from the City and the City doesn’t need any
special favors from Aldi”. There are no setback requirements, the building meets any criteria the City has and McCarthy sees no barriers. This will come before Dundas Council one last time on November 14th to approve the recommendations from the Planning Commission who have approved the plans as is. If all goes well, groundbreaking will take place next Spring.
