Paisley’s DOWNTOWN WASHROOM PLAN for 2013

 Leadership is leaving the washroom cleaner than you found it.

  •  The municipality currently provides signage and porta potties at Dr. Milne Park, Saugeen Paddlers dock, the water treatment plant and signage and a permanent and seasonal washroom at Mary Cumming Park.
  • The Rotary has a washroom on their campground that is accessible to their campers only, Victoria Day to Thanksgiving.
  •  The Farmers’ Market paid for a porta pottie behind the LCBO from June to August in 2012. They are planning to provide another from Victoria Day to Thanksgiving in 2013.
  • Cowan Canoe Livery provides a porta pottie on the north side of the river. (west of the bridge)
  • Gibby’s Grub, Nature’s Millworks, Marty’s Bar & Grill, Back Eddies, Elora Soap, Simply Delish and the Museum (perhaps more – my apologies to have missed you if you provide an easily accessible washroom) have washrooms that are easily accessible to the public.

There is plenty of willingness and time to explore your ideas. No idea too crazy to be explored.
