A local builder and a neighbourhood community association both agree that a historic, wooded property at 21 Withrow Ave. in Nepean would make a great park — but the question of whether it’s possible is where they don’t see eye-to-eye.

At a rally Friday, Theberge Homes president Joey Theberge and City View Community Association president Joan Clark discussed, very cordially, the future of the property in which they’re both deeply invested. The conversation revealed they actually shared a lot of common ground, but they were operating under different assumptions about the park’s future based on conversations with local politicians.
