In July 2019, we hosted 2 Community Meetings at the Coboconk Train Station to give folks an update on the project and to hear their ideas, suggestions, and comments. We were so pleased to see a packed house for both meetings – close to 100 people shared their thoughts and helped to move this dream closer to fruition!
As you have probably already heard, the Chamber has been working hard on this initiative to build a Wellness Hub in Coboconk that will help to address the issues that have arisen from the closure of the Coboconk Medical Centre.
The concept is to renovate and expand the Coboconk Train Station building, preserving that significant piece of Coboconk history, and building space for 2-3 doctors, walk-in clinic hours, a dentist, and other complementary practitioners such as seniors foot care, massage, physio and chiropractic care. Expanded space through new construction, new parking, and better road access are all part of the new plans.
