When people in Oakville have friends, family and visitors in Oakville can they put them up in a downtown hotel that complements our Town and its beauty?
Attracting visitors has been de-prioritized in Oakville and we all suffer as a result. Visitors contribute to the vibrancy and economic well-being of a community – enabling communities to support infrastructure they wouldn’t be able to afford on their own.
Attracting a hotel for Oakville in the trend of the beautiful boutique hotels that are popping up across North America and the world would help attract people to Oakville, help bring people to our downtown, help support arts and culture and offer welcome accommodation for residents’ invited guests.
As Mayor, I would work through Council to instruct the Town Planning Committee to find the best way to attract a Hotel that builds on the character and appeal of our Town.
