It’s up to the County of Simcoe to approve a huge development request from Innisfil’s Friday Harbour Resort.

Friday Harbour Resort is requesting an official plan amendment to add 1,000 more residential units to its property.

On Feb. 13, the county will discuss handing power for a mandatory public meeting over to the Town of Innisfil.

Friday Harbour is a $1.5-billion resort featuring an inland marina with 1,000 boat slips, condominiums, a shopping district, golf course and many more amenities.

The massive marina project was first proposed about 18 years ago and it received Ontario Municipal Board approval a decade ago. In 2015, the plan was for the resort to have 400 hotel rooms and 1,600 resort units when fully developed.

    This is insane!!
    Hasn’t Friday Harbour already done enough damage to the Lake Simcoe watershed?
    How does this fit within the SCOP that was finally approved by the OMB after 2.5 years of hearings? Or Places to Grow? etc. etc.
    Simcoe County can’t possibly approve this!!

    Frankly, we’re not surprised. What a colossal boondoggle! The development is over-big in the first place, and now the owner(s) want to make it bigger. How do the people who have bought units in the development feel about this? They have been lied to. No intimate little weekend place in the country on the Lake as they had thought. The OMB should have known better in 2015.
