If you live on Richmond Road between the Pizza Hut plaza and the village of Richmond your address is about to change (next May).
Not too many residents seem to know about it. Many think that the Chiarelli ‘compromise’ means that the RC backed down and sanity has been restored to Bells Corners. Or they have been misled by an article in a community paper that said that ditching the Lloyd Francis Boulevard name in Bells Corners means that the ‘Old Richmond Rd.’ name is also toast.
Not so! The paper published a correction – everyone on Robertson and Richmond is getting a new address.
Residents and businesses on Richmond Road, on the strip and all the way to the village of Richmond, will get a new name and a new number. Everyone on Robertson Rd. will get a new address too – same name but a new number.
Here is one resident’s list of who he will have to contact:
* family and friends
* utilities (heating, hydro, cable, telephone, internet, etc.)
* doctor, dentist, lawyer, accountant, other professionals
* recreational contacts, memberships
* driver’s license
* home, car, life insurance companies
* pensions, etc.
* banks and investments
* churches and schools
Beer store plaza customers – watch out for buskers!
Actually, the guy with the guitar is good! He was featured in this Youtube I made a few years ago, talking about how much he loved the Lynwood outdoor rinks. Wish we had more buskers and jesters in Bells Corners to liven things up.
