News Oct 09, 2020 by Craig Campbell Dundas Star News

Several feet of water had to be pumped out of 10 Newman Rd.’s foundation before the City of Hamilton could proceed with removal of the underground structure.

Councillor Arlene VanderBeek announced Friday, Oct. 9 the foundation had been removed, the hole filled, fencing taken down and the site cleaned up by the city’s contractor.

“I will be working with City staff to determine next steps to complete any necessary additional work and the naturalization of the property, along with an estimated timeline for those projects,” VanderBeek stated in an email update.

“In due course, it is my goal to have this property officially added to the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark, to protect it in perpetuity.”

Most of the building was carefully dismantled and removed by former owner Marco Zwaan prior to selling to the city for $2 on Wednesday, Sept. 30,

Staff arrived at 10 Newman Rd. shortly after 2 p.m on Tuesday, Oct. 6 to begin pumping out water and preparing the site for removal of the foundation.
