The Corporation of the Town of Grand Valley is the result of an amalgamation effective January 1, 1995 of the former Township of East Luther, a rural farming area and the former Village of Grand Valley, an urban area, and in September 2012 a name change was made to the Town of Grand Valley. The Town consists of the original “village”, with its commercial downtown and heritage houses and new development, the agricultural and rural areas, as well as natural areas, such as the Luther Marsh, valleys and the Grand River. The marsh covers 13,000 acres with a 3500 acre lake within it. The Grand River, recently designated as a Heritage River, flows from the northern to the southern boundary. It is popular for its fishing and picnicking opportunities, natural drainage for our farmers and the beauty it adds flowing through our urban centre.
The Grand Valley B.I.A. is striving to enhance the urban centre within the municipality to encourage the expansion and retention of the retail and related business core. The Upper Grand Trailway Committee is enhancing the multi use trail on the old CP rail line in an attempt to link it to the existing trails around the area and throughout the Luther Marsh.
To accommodate development, we have updated our Official Plan and Zoning By-law with lands designated for future job growth and residential development. A new Waste Water Treatment plant has been built to accommodate this development as mandated by the province through the “Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe”. New residential development has started and we are looking for employment growth as well to bring jobs for area residents. We are open for business!
Even though we are small in size at present we have local soccer, baseball, hockey, figure skating, air cadets, guides, scouts and dance classes, service clubs and much, much more. A local school, an arena, medical centre, parks, library, fire hall and ambulance station round out our Municipal services.
The Municipality’s north boundary is Highway #89 and the southernmost is County Road #109 (former Highway #9) divided centrally by County Road #25 (former Highway #25) thus providing easy access to major centers.
