LIMITS Parties

The environmental advocacy group LIMITS is continuing their push on to keep the Hanlon Creek Business Park from coming to concreted fruition. In my mailbox today, I got this invite from the group for an event happening this Sunday. Hopefully, the weather will clear up by then.

The City of Guelph's proposed Hanlon Creek Business Park continues to be at the forefront of Guelph's environmental issues. To continue raising awareness and building momentum against this 675-acre industrial project, and to build positive community relationships, LIMITS (Land Is More Important Than Sprawl) is hosting a family-friendly summer solstice event this Sunday. The best time for photo/camera shots would likely be around lunch.

When: Sunday June 21, 11am-4pm
Where: An old homestead on the proposed-HCBP site, just South of Downey and Teal (look for signs)
Who: Members of LIMITS, local and out-of-town musicians, and local youth and families
