    Youll have more room to park it in King City when you get on the GO from now on.

    Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca announced the opening up of 72 new

    parking spaces at the King City GO Station last Friday. The spaces were officially ready for use this past Tues-day.

    Theyll be followed up by a further 60 new spaces in an adjacent lot to be built and

    opened next spring reduc-ing the stress on surrounding streets.

    King City is a very busy station. In fact approxima-tetly 1,000 customers use this

    More room for parking at King City GO

    King Township Mayor Steve Pellegrini made no apologies for the high cost of build-ing new housing in King Township, as revealed in a Fraser Institute survey of Greater Golden Horseshoe homebuilders.

    I think its good news actually, said Pel-legrini when asked about Kings ranking as the most expensive place to build a home among 23 municipalities in the Greater Gold-en Horseshoe.

    The Fraser Institute study found obtaining approval for construction costs a typical resi-dential developer in King Township $57,500 per individual dwelling unit. As an example, that turns out to be more than three times as much as in Hamilton, the community with the least costs and fees.

    But Pellegrini had an explanation for the high costs of development charges and associ-ated costs and fees for home building in King Township.

    We have the Oak Ridges Moraine and the Greenbelt, so 99 per cent of King Township is highly protected and regulated from develop-ment, said Pellegrini.

    Pellegrini on Fraser survey:
