Save Lemoine Point Farm

City deciding fate of Farm this Tuesday? Time to act.


We’ve been watching the City Council agenda waiting to see when the purchase of Lemoine Point Farm might come up.

Is this it? The City Council agenda for Tuesday, June 20th, lists this closed meeting agenda item:

“A proposed or pending acquisition – Potential Acquisition of Waterfront Property.”

Could this be about the Lemoine Point Farm property?

The timing fits. The executors of the estate have been in place for over a year and the Farm property needs to be sold to close out the estate.

Election promises

Before the city election, we asked candidates for Council: Do you support the city’s purchase and long-term protection of Lemoine Point Farm as a place for nature and agriculture, not for development?

The Mayor and 10 of the elected councillors said “yes”.

We hope City Council continues to see the extraordinary value of preserving the Farm property as a whole.

What can YOU do to save the Farm?

We cannot lose this opportunity. Just in case…

Please call or write the Mayor and your city councillor before 5 pm Tuesday. Say that:

  • you support the city’s acquisition and protection of the entire Farm property
  • you want your city councillor to be far-sighted and realize the value of the Farm to the future of the City — great cities have great green spaces.
  • you do not want to see any part of the Farm sold for development — the city needs this farmland, green space, and waterfront — for now and for the sake of future generations.

Talk to your neighbours and friends, too. Share this email with all your contacts before Tuesday by email and on social media. Ask them to talk or write to their City Councillor to add their voices to yours. And please let them know that they can get updates directly from us by subscribing on the Save Lemoine Point Farm website.

Please, speak up now before it is too late.
