CENTRE HASTINGS ON WAY TO THIRD RECORD IN FIVE YEARS!
For the third time in the past five years the Municipality of Centre Hastings is on its way to setting a new record for building construction. As of the end of June almost $4,500,000.00 in building permits have been issued eclipsing the record that was set in 2003......and there are still several months left in the 2004 construction season. The variety of buildings that are part of this record include houses (both single detatched and duplexes), large additions to already standing houses, a Tim Horton's, a condominium, and a six-plex rental unit.
is a municipality that offers many advantages to those wishing to relocate
and build in our great community.
The Municipality of Cenre Hastings offers three distinct areas to purchase into and build. First, the Village of Madoc in the north end of the municipality offers a small urban setting ideal for young families and retirement. The costs of fully serviced lots are competitive and reasonable, and Madoc offers a full range of educational facilities, medical, service trades, and recreational facilities for all from the infant to the elderly. Madoc offers quiet, stress-reduced, and safe environment for one and all.
Second, just south of the Village of Madoc, lies Moira Lake and its distinctive living advantages. This jewel of a lake offers quiet waterside properties both for summer use and many for year-round occupation. The lake offers boating, swimming, and some of the best fishing in the area. The largest recent Muskie catch was over 43 pounds, and this fish is back in the lake for you to catch. The pickerel and bass fishing is excellent. But, best of all the lake offers a laid-back lifestyle supported by the Moira Lake Property Owners Association, an organization that works hard to maintain the qualities of life for all on Moira Lake and the lake itself.
Third, from Moira Lake south there is the third unique living area......the mixed rural lands and farm lands of the south end of the municipality. This area offers a great selection of rural properties in woods, along pretty well-maintained gently rolling secondary roads, in close proximity to farms and tiny hamlets such as Fuller and Moira. This is a most attractive rural landscape that offers a tranquility, peacefulness, and serenity in contrast to the hustle and bustle of an urban setting.
The properties here are also competitively and reasonably priced offering great locations for a future home offering the living features you are dreaming of.
Also, the time of the writing of this article, the municipal development charges are the lowest in this immediate area. This can offer valuable savings.
