Before 1836, this outstanding City property on which the Pembroke City Hall stands was Crown Land. During 1836, Phoebe Rockwood acquired 200 acres of this land, which was located on the north side of Pembroke Street and bordered the Muskrat River. In 1838, Phoebe and Elizah Rockwood sold this parcel of 200 acres to John McDonald. Samuel and James McKay acquired the property from John McDonald in 1840.
The City of Pembroke stands at the joining of the Ottawa and Muskrat rivers in the beautiful Ottawa Valley. The settlement was started by the cutting of the first tree by Peter White, a lumbering prospector, in May 1828. He moved his family to a home he built on this homestead, and began his lumbering operations which prospered.
This policy is intended to enable the Municipality to promptly and effectively address program and service delivery concerns raised by members of the public. The policy will assist the City of Pembroke in providing excellent service to the public, and contribute to continuous improvement of operations.
