The Town of Collingwood wants to hear ideas from residents on where to invest $18.6 million in proceeds from recent asset sales at Engage Collingwood. A short survey presents a number of investment ideas, including debt management, facility upgrades, waterfront enhancements, and legacy funds. There is also an opportunity for the public to share other ideas for consideration. In March of 2019, the Town of Collingwood finalized the sale of the final 50 percent share of Collingwood Powerstream Utility Services and also the sale of the Collingwood Regional Airport which provided $18.6 million in proceeds that are now available for investment into the community.
