The city of Algoma is taking a survey of residents to determine the best use of the now-vacant Masonite manufacturing facility, once known as Algoma Hardwoods.

The survey asks such questions as the best future use of the buildings and property, whether cleanup and/or redevelopment should be handled by the public or private sector or in partnership, how long the property should be allowed to remain empty before the city steps in, and what the city’s main development focus should be.

Surveys must be completed by June 15, Deputy CIty Clerk Jamie Jackson said. Paper copies are available at City Hall and must be turned back in by June 14 so they have time to enter them into the online format, Jackson added.
