Alan Asselstine: said that he had sent out an e-mail by mistake and apologized for the confusion it had caused.
John Sankey: The HCCO is the community association. We expect to be kept informed and involved concerning services to our community. We need to make sure sure that the new expanded Community Centre meets the needs of the Recreation Association and the Services Centre. He sent a list of questions to Maria McRae. He consulted with several staff and board members of the Recreation Association and the Services Centre.
Maria McRae: Linda Poulsen is the President of the Recreation Association and she is here to report on the expanded Community Centre.
Linda Poulsen: She wanted more storage and a bathroom for the kids. This is what she wanted and she got it. She is confident that the expanded Community Centre will meet the needs of the Recreation Association.
Alan Asselstine: Based on the meeting from October at City Hall we had a list of questions and we wanted to follow up on them. He is glad that Linda showed up tonight to clear up her position and that we should move on from here.
Jerry Beausoleil: He is a recent member of the Board but feels that the details of the expansion are not the responsibility of the Board.
John Sankey: It is valid to ask if the concerns of the community are met.
Maria McRae: Lynda Barrett, President of the Services Centre and Linda Poulsen, President of the Recreation Association have to be the points of contact for their organizations. Any concerns must be addressed to them and if there are any outstanding concerns then they should be addressed to City staff. The list of questions will go to the two Presidents.
Motion: That discussion of the list of questions be closed. Moved by Alan Asselstine, seconded by Peter Brimacombe, carried.
Alan Asselstine: Asked if there is an update on the Airport Parkway Services Study and the Bronson Avenue Review.
Maria McRae: City Council unanimously approved both the studies which are safety studies. On the Airport Parkway, there will be more police enforcement and better signage and on Bronson Avenue there will be improved lanes to get off onto Findlay Avenue. Next meeting she should have more information on 300 Hunt Club where there will be a new Asian Grocery Store.
Alan Asselstine: City staff will provide the Hunt Club In-Service Safety Review, one week before council meets, probably in August. This review deals with Hunt Club Road from the Airport Parkway to Albion Road. Councillor McRae’s Office will share the review the HCCO when it is available.
