Mayoral candidate Al McDonald said today in a news release that he is putting a priority on infrastructure as an important part of the plan for long-term sustainability, growth, and development.

“If we don’t maintain our pace of infrastructure renewal and investment, we won’t be ready for development opportunities,” said McDonald.

McDonald claims when business and industry look to expand, relocate or engage in new startup operations, a key ingredient in the mix is whether a community has the necessary services in place.

“North Bay has continually invested in infrastructure to the tune of more than $120 million dollars in the last four years alone, he said”
 
According to McDonald the city’s decision to extend water service to Canadore and Nipissing ensures the shared post-secondary campus has the services needed to allow them to expand for programming, student services, and future student housing when needed.

“These are the kind of investments people often don’t see but that return huge dividends to the community,” said McDonald.
