The proposed Cedar Crescent Village project along the Port Elgin waterfront appears to have cleared another hurdle.
Saugeen Shores Council gave preliminary approval of a site works and servicing agreement at Monday’s Committee of the Whole meeting.
Staff delivered a report to the committee on the project and Mayor Luke Charbonneau says it mostly involves the design and “feel” of the what the building would look like.
Charbonneau says there are still a few things that need to be ironed out but believes that can be done at the staff level and not require Council approval.
The 23,000 square-foot building had undergone several changes to meet Saugeen Valley Conservation guidelines.
Charbonneau acknowledges there will be some who still oppose the project but believes everyone will enjoy it once it is finally built and open to the public.
Construction of the new building is expected to be completed by summer of 2023.
