Controversy arises again in Beach(es) about neighbourhood name

December 9, 2013 in Latest Community News Blog, Real Estate Blog

What the heck is this neighbourhood called and does it really matter?  Where does the Beach or Beaches start or end. It seems like we have another little controversy on our hands now as Beach Village signs start popping up.  It was just a few years ago that the local BIA held a referendum on Beach vs. Beaches, with Beach coming out on top.

Here’s a great article by historian Gene Domagala that appeared in the latest edition of the Beach Metro News. It will shed some light on the history of the neighbourhood and may surprise some residents about the geographic history of the area.
