The next three months will see a number of important initiatives and work impacting Ward 1 come before Council and the community.
The Oakville Harbours Master Plan review has begun. The consultant group The Planning Partnership Group won the bid and has begun preliminary meetings with stakeholder groups in Oakville and Halton. Public meetings and on-line comments will be solicited over the coming weeks and months. I will send out the information as soon as it is available. Alternatively, please contact me and I will add you to the Harbours list.
The development proposal for 83 East Street by Symgine (Lake East) Inc. held its first public meeting on January 27th at the QEPCC. Close to one-hundred residents showed up to hear from our planning staff and the developers development team.
The last public meeting for this development application will be held at the Town of Oakville Planning and Development Meeting on March 21st at 7pm at Town Hall. Should you wish to delegate at the meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be no decisions made that evening however it will be a chance to hear from our staff on the recommendations of the proposed application. That application can be found by clicking East Street Development Application.
I was appointed to sit on the Town of Oakville’s Official Plan Sub-Committee as one of the Town’s six Regional Councillors. The review of our official plan is mandatory under Provincial legislation. The sub-committee reviews our growth, employment and commercial areas to protect established residential areas while fulfilling our Provincially mandated growth targets.
The committee will be meeting throughout the coming months reporting back to Council this Fall with our recommendations.
This April, our engineering department will be bringing forward a report on traffic calming measures we can do to help slow speeding down on our roads. I look forward to sharing that report with you and hearing your thoughts on the various tools.
