Signs for Commercial Establishments

 

 

Plans are moving forward to bring a new Wellness Centre to Coboconk!

As you have probably already heard, the Chamber has been working hard on an initative 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, after-hours care 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.
