A reminder that the public participation meeting at City Hall will likely be on February 8th. Letters can be sent to pec@london.ca by January 15th with a note that you want it included on the agenda when the Master Plan for this ESA is before the Planning and Environment Committee. Also copy Councillor Squire (psquire@london.ca) Letters should be addressed to Chair and Members. Even better than a letter is to appear at the meeting and let the Committee members know how you feel about the ESA.

We want to be sure that a community representative will be involved in the tendering process.
