It has been announced (and approved by city council) that the ownership of Camp 30 POW Camp will soon be transferred to the municipality of Clarington. However, "Before Clarington assumes ownership of the property, the current owners will demolish any buildings that have not been identified for historic preservation and also clean up the area, including removing all graffiti, as well as installing security cameras."
I recently visited Camp 30, and I can tell you that there are already cameras installed on the property (I counted 3 or 4 sets of cameras, see pics below). I was also told by a friendly police officer that, even tho I had walked through an open gate with a sign which said "Welcome" on it (see pic below), that the whole property was private property and I was trespassing. Since he was being kind enough just to give me a warning (and not a ticket), I didn't want to argue too much (even though I'm sure I'm right, and could have probably won in court, I didn't want to push it.) He sped off down the street to talk to other people parked on the street, closer to the buildings (I was at the main gate).
