A proposed supportive, modular housing project in Barrie is already drawing opposition from its neighbours.
Sixty-seven of them signed a petition between Jan. 29 and Jan. 31, outlining their concerns about the planned Vespra Street development on the old fire hall site.
Joyce Chun, who owns property on nearby Sanford Street, said she had to do something when she heard about the project.
“This is so important I could not sit still,” she said, after helping circulate the petition. “There was overwhelming rejection of the idea. I don’t like it, the people don’t like it and I’ve got 67 signatures of people who don’t like it. And I only did a couple of streets.”
