Sunday September 28, 2008

Its election season and between watching coverage in the US and Canada there seems little time for anything else. That said…..

The Town will host its first budget meeting this Tuesday September 30th at 5:45 (Watching Only). We will hear the spending plans for next year for our Planning Department, Fire Department, Administration, Community Services and Public Works.

Then on Wednesday October 1st at 6:30 pm the Town will introduce you to its new Official Planning Process. (You May Speak) This is a long term effort to develop a future vision of the Town. I urge you to get involved in this important discussion over the coming months. More details at

Later that same evening at 7:00 pm the Planning Advisory Committee meets (You May Speak). Two items of particular interest:
- The possible acquisition of lands for a trail between Hugel and Yonge next to MSS
- Review of changes in response to the public hearing respecting the “VLA lands” development at 950 Yonge St.
Our Askennonia Senior's are very busy in October with such things as Garfield Dunlop's free Senior Day, the free Seniors Health & Wellness Fair & Luncheon, the Fall Fashion Show and 55 Alive Driver Refresher Course. For more details see
A reminder of the All Candidates meeting taking place on Tuesday October 7th at 7:00 pm at the Penentanguishene Brian Orser Hall. The debate is sponsored by the Southern Georgian Bay Chamber of Commerce.

And finally a last minute reminder that the Huronia Foundation for the Arts fundraising celebration starts at 5:30 pm on Saturday October 4th. Tickets are available at the NSSRC.
