Parks and Recreation: Peter LaBerge reported on meetings held with Mayor and feels satisfied that they were successful, but pressure must be kept up to ensure progress. He wants to have a table set up beside head table on March 18th meeting with Mayor, in order to present the Committee’s point of view to the public. He feels the Committee should have a half hour set aside to do so. (Please note letter attached.)
There was some discussion on chairing the meeting. It was decided to leave it to Art Mountain to make a decision. Art will also be requested to arrange for P.A. System, with floor mikes. Mr. Dennison suggests that people word their questions more carefully when faced with a mike. In this watt, the meeting would be better controlled. Three stations were suggested. Flyers for the meeting of March 18th and April 4th were ready and each member offered to deliver in their areas. Rent of $20.00 was received by Mary Weisman and passed on to the school for rent of same,(April 2nd meeting.\
Security of Community: Art Mountain suggested that the community association purchase six (6) inscribing tools. Peter LaBerge said that it has been his experience that they get lost, broken or are not passed on promptly. Suggests people be encouraged to buy one of their own, or share with one or two neighbors. Everyone agreed. They can be purchased for around $9.00 at Canadian Tire. Mary Weisman was asked to get in touch with Hettie Baetes to set up Block Parents table at this meeting (April 2nd, 1980)
Other Business: A check was made about trees being chopped down at McCarthy Woods. We have been assured work crews are cutting down dead trees only.
New Business: It was suggested that since we have both a Liberal Government and a Liberal Member in Ottawa Center that it would be a good time to ask Mr. Evans about access to Parkway at Hunt Club Road. This would alleviate traffic through Riverside South. It was decided to leave it for the new executive.
