The website said "excavation, undertaken over a three-year period"

So the builder must have known. Were any of the homeowners told about this?

The three years happened many year ago.
This is a portion of the article:
This large, nine acre village produced over 18,000 artifacts from the initial controlled surface collection.
Subsequent excavation, undertaken over a three-year period, yielded evidence of eight rows of palisade
representing various re-building sequences, and over 70 longhouses.

Still don't know why it is taking soooooooo long to get permits.

Default Good question

I am trying to remember when I found out about the find. I think I heard about it late in 2004 but it wasn't presented as a huge issue. I was given the impression that there would be a delay but it was under control. I am not sure it has ever been communicated to me via writing...it was always played off as circumstances beyond their control. As GGH and Mattamy were in the same boat, I figured it was the developer. Perhaps the next letter will address these issues.

Default Interesting Information

Thank you for this information. We have been wondering all this time what the hold up could be. We really had no idea about this archeiological (sp?) find.

Well, now there is a reason as to why we have been waiting for so long, with no real answers to our questions and frustrations. Why was this such a big secret?

I wonder if there are more surprises in store.

Thanks for the information.

We have just gotten off the phone with the town of stouffville. We were told that all issues for the fieldgate area have been resolved and the registration/permits should be done in the next two weeks and our dec. closing should still be possible.

Cool Fingers crossed

I am going to keep my fingers crossed. I have heard the words "The land will be registered in 2 weeks" too many times. I was at the site for the first time in about 6 weeks on Saturday and I couldn't believe the difference. The GGH and Mattamy site just popped up!! The homes look amazing.

Unhappy Does that go for Mantle Ave as well?

Hi Waiting,

I was wondering if you know that the 2 weeks was for the Mantle site as well? I find it highly unlikely, since we're not even fully serviced yet. We've been waiting now since April 2004. Everything that could go wrong, I think has gone wrong. We're still hoping for a miracle.

If you could let me know any info. We would really appreciate it.

Hi Lines, I might be confussed but isn't the Mantle site and the Fieldgate site the same site or is there another Mantle site? At least this time it is the town telling us a few weeks and not just the builder.

Default Mantle Site

Hi Waiting,

The Mantle site is the area east of the creek (right off of 10th, in the process of being serviced). The other area of the "Mantle site" is west of the creek where Mattamy and GGH are (south of the Lebovic Centre). This area is fully serviced and ready to go. I believe the two sites are considered one...so if the land is registered it means it is all registered and they will continue to service the Mantle site and begin buiding west of the creek.
