Saturday April 3, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen

Summer has started outside, so I will keep this short.

The Town is closed Monday for the Easter holiday. Enjoy.

Tuesday April the 6th is the day to find out more about your own solar energy project. SHARE is hosting an information meeting at 7:00 pm at the Native Friendship Centre on Yonge Street in Midland. Your chance to cash in on the hot summer ahead.

On Wednesday April the 7th at 7:00 pm is the monthly PAC meeting (Speak at Discretion of Chair). A short but interesting agenda. Two examples:
1) A discussion on “secondary suites” in single detached homes. The meeting will discuss a suites registry and the need to have the suites re-registered every 3 years. The meeting will review the power of entry onto premises for the “suites Registrar”. The meeting will also learn about the ongoing status of existing suites – are they legal? (An accepted estimate is that 10% of our single family homes have existing secondary suites)

2) Staff is bringing forward a recommendation for an Employment Area Policy Review. Apparently concerns arising from a number of recent applications that have sought to change zoning in employment areas has led to the need for an update. This request is being made even though the Town stopped Official Plan updates until after we have heard from the County and province about our employment allocations.

In closing, what could be better than the Huronia Foundation for the Arts dinner and celebration taking place at the Best Western this Saturday April the 10th at 6:00 pm. Tickets are available at $49 each – and I have a few left.
