A former place of worship for Guelph’s Jehovah’s Witnesses could soon become a chiropractic clinic.
According to documents posted on the City of Guelph’s website, the new owner of the former Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses at 639 Eramosa Rd. is looking to have the property rezoned so that it can be converted into a chiropractic clinic.
The proposal is being put forward by Drs. Michael Grabowski and Katelyn McGhie, both of whom are currently operating out of the Guelph Chiropractic Health Centre on Woolwich Street. Should the property’s rezoning be approved, that clinic would relocate to Eramosa Road.
According to property records, the building was purchased via a numbered company owned by Grabowski in December 2020 for $725,000.
This rezoning application is set to appear in front of city council at its Sept. 12 planning meeting – the last such gathering ahead of the Oct. 24 municipal election – for its first public meeting. No final decisions will be made on this application at that time, with council only voting to officially receive it.
The Sept. 12 council planning meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., and will be livestreamed at guelph.ca/live.
Anyone looking to provide a delegation at this meeting is required to register with the city clerk’s office no later than 10 a.m. on Sept. 9. To register, call 519-837-5603, TTY 519-826-9771, send an email to [email protected] or go online to guelph.ca/delegate.
Written submissions can be sent to the clerk’s office, also by the Sept. 9 deadline.
