Member Highlight: The Link – Town of Georgina
Centrally located within Sutton, a growing community within Georgina, the Town of Georgina purchased the decommissioned Sutton Public School in 2011. Since then, the Town’s multi-million dollar investment towards the renovation of Phase 1 of The Link finished in July 2015.
15,000 sq.ft. now houses a multi-sector service centre that addresses various community challenges, provides a unique collaboration platform and, because of Georgina’s geographic size, has reduced the difficulty of accessing programs and services now all in one location.
The Link has multiple tenant organizations operating full-time, short-term rental & programming spaces such as a large Event Hall, state of the art Commercial Teaching Kitchen, two meeting rooms and a beautiful 6 acre backyard located centrally in the town.
