Fred McLennan: Minto has submitted its Draft Plan of Subdivision to City Council, along with an Municipal Environmental Evaluation Report (MEER) and the Delcon Traffic Report done in February 2001. It is expected that the Draft Plan will be approved.
Nancy Seaby: The City has approved the creation of a new Resource Centre for Hunt Club, Melody Paruboczy will be the Director. The Resource Centre will hold an open house at the Hunt Club/Riverside Community Centre on Tuesday February 26, 2002. A new portable will be located next to the Community Centre to temporarily house the new Resource Centre.
Nancy Seaby: The new O Train is now in service and it is working really well but there is a danger that the existing 41 bus may be cancelled in order to partially offset the cost of the O Train.
Alan Asselstine said that there must be at least 10,000 people within walking distance of a train station and that only the Carleton University Station meets this criteria.
There was general concern that the new O Train is not feasible.
Fred McLennan said that residents near Uplands and Rhapsody Lane had complained about youths making noise on the basketball court. The City is taking no action because the problem is not serious.
Fred McLennan reported that the property owner of the seniors residence in Darlington Private had applied to add a 5th floor.
Gisèle Loiselle-Branch said that the teen dance in the Walkley Sports Centre was not adequately supervised. Teenagers need to be told not to fondle each other on the dance floor.
Next meeting: Mon 7 Jan 2002 at 7:30pm
