Neighborhood News – Mid-August

Be Sure to Lock Up

There have been a few cars rifled through in the neighborhood, and a couple of other crimes were reported to and posted by the police.

Reports via Neighbourhood Watch have been: theft-other/trailer under $5000 on Foxchapel, theft from car under $5000 in the 200 block of Wychwood Park and a similar theft on Rollingwood Circle. All these were at night and reported earlier in August.

Medway News and Other Neighbourhood Events

Medway ESA

The draft Medway ESA Conservation Master Plan went to the City’s Planning and Environment Committee of Council for review on Monday. After 11:30 pm Monday night, this ended in a 3-3 tie vote. Councillor Park moved a motion to remove the bridge in our area, and got support from Hopkins and Turner (our Councillor, Phil Squire, is not on this Committee, and was therefore not eligible to vote, but he is certainly opposed to the bridges). The motion to remove the bridge was opposed by the Mayor, Councillors Helmer and Cassidy.

City Budget, Take Part!

Council will not be passing the budget until March 10, 2016 which means there are still opportunities to get involved. January 21 was the first round of discussions by Council. If you go to the City’s web site and look for the Council meeting agendas, you will be able to watch the discussions. Complete budget information, updates and presentations are on line at the City’s Budget page. You can follow the discussions on Twitter: @CityofLdnOnt or #LdnBudget, and at the City’s Facebook page.

Neighbourhood Update and Reminder

Sherwood Forest School Site Update

The city staff recommendation for the rezoning passed unanimously at the City Council’s Planning and Environment Committee last night. I anticipate it will pass next week at City Council. We will keep you up to date as the process moves forward. The next step will be the City declaring the “non-park” portion surplus and preparing a Request for Proposals for the sale and development of the “housing” portion of the site.

The staff report can be found here.

Reminder – All Candidates’ Meeting for Ward 6

There is a candidates’ meeting at the Cherryhill Mall on Thursday, October 9 at 7 pm. This event will be recorded by Rogers for later re-broadcast. Check Roger’s website for the schedule.
