St. Andrews Lodge Demolition
The Town has entered into a contract to demolish the former St. Andrews Lodge Building at 3319 Island Highway West. This decision was made by Council after considerable debate and exploration of the costs of renovating and repurposing the former lodge building. The former lodge building would have required extensive renovations and remediation to retain. From a financial perspective it is simply not viable to keep the lodge building when there are so many other community priorities.

“Although we must say goodbye to the Former St. Andrews Lodge, the Town will fully recognize the important role of Ms. Little and the Former St. Andrews Lodge Property in our Town’s history through installations on and off of the site. We certainly understand the emotion around this issue, however, the Town did follow an exhaustive process prior to making this difficult decision.” – Mayor Wiese.
