Thank You Sarah Cavanagh & Hometown News



Months ago the North Industrial Park of Carleton Place was renamed The Dunlop Business Park after a 51 year promise to the Kenny family. In November I posted that  a decision had been made and the name was officially changed.

However in the local newspapers and town council meetings, I still see and hear it being referred to as the North Industrial Park even though the name has officially changed. The Kenny family is also waiting for the street sign to physically change. These past few weeks I had a few inquiring emails, and I wish to assure everyone that Deputy Mayor Jerry Flynn and Councillor Brian Doucett said they would look after it.

In this month’s edition of Hometown News there is an article by our roving reporter Sarah Cavanagh  who correctly calls it –Carleton Place–News From the Dunlop Business Park.

Thank you Sarah it made me smile.
