Barrie’s KKP is now Allegra Marketing

Now, Kwik Kopy Printing Barrie is taking the next step in its evolution with a rebranding that accurately reflects the breadth of its capabilities.

Renamed Allegra Marketing — Print — Mail, the centre and its owners, Susan and John Morton, are offering a fresh approach to design, marketing, print and mailing services with enhanced service offerings.

“This change reaffirms our commitment to Barrie, our neighbours and the customers we serve,” said John, whose parents first opened the business in 1984. “We look forward to deepening our client relationships while providing more companies in the region with our broader range of products and services.”

Public meeting set for July 11 for proposed condo development in Beeton

The Beeton Station Condominium development will be the focus of a public meeting taking place next week.

The town received an application from a developer seeking to build two four-storey condo buildings on a vacant 5.36-acre site on the west side of Dayfoot Street, south of Danielle Gate.

The buildings are to include a total of 87 units, a two-storey clubhouse and underground and surface parking.

The application seeks to re-designate the lands from medium density residential to urban residential exception.

John Robulack, the architect behind the proposal, made a brief presentation to council back in November.

He told council the proposal seeks to honour the heritage of Beeton and would feature Victorian-style buildings.

He also said the site includes lands that were purchased from the South Simcoe Railway and the developer would rebuild the 1887 era train station, allowing residents to ride the steam train between Tottenham and Beeton.

At the meeting, Coun. Richard Norcross highlighted a number of issues that would need to be addressed, including the location of the sidewalk on Dayfoot Street, storm water management, traffic studies and parking.

The public meeting takes place Wednesday, July 11 at 7 p.m.
