Latchford Undertakes Waterfront Improvements
McGuinty Government Commits To Enhancing Local Infrastructure
The town of Latchford is getting the most out of its Montreal River shoreline.
The Northern Ontario Heritage Front Corporation (NOHFC) is contributing $74,800 toward a local waterfront development project. Work includes extending an existing walkway, constructing a loading/safety platform next to a boat launch, and developing a campground/comfort station area.
- Latchford is home to the world’s shortest, and one of Ontario’s few remaining covered bridges.
- The Corporation of the Town of Latchford celebrated its centennial during 2007.
“Quality recreational and leisure facilities are important attractions that help generate tourism revenue in the North.”
