Saturday July 3, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen

Its summertime…and the living is easy.

The Town winds down a bit over the summer so News from the Town will be taking a bit of a break. If any major developments occur, though I will do my best to keep you informed.

On Monday July 5th the Town will hold a closed meeting at 6:00 pm at the NSSRC. That same evening the YMCA invites the community to celebrate young entrepreneurs in our community with a reception starting at 7:30 at the Employment Resource Centre on King St. at Elizabeth.

On Wednesday July 7th at 7:00 pm a Public Meeting will hear your views on the arrangement the Town made with the site developer to preserve the Drummond Wall. Then at approximately 7:10 pm is the PAC meeting (Speak at Discretion of Chair). A couple of interesting items;
- Mr. Baggio, owner of the old Manly St. School property at 384 Hugel, is seeking a zoning amendment to build 14 condominium units
- Our Planning Department will tell us about their plan to reassess the Town’s Employment Lands, especially those that are zoned Industrial.

On Thursday the 8th of July, is the opening of the Midland Area Reading Council’s new book store at 756 Yonge St. at 4;00 pm.

And on Saturday July 10th, two items for your calendar:
- The Midland Library Garden Tour takes place in a garden near you
- A citizens action group, AWARE, is meeting to discuss the upcoming election at 10:00 am at the Legion in Penetanguishene

This fall, you will be asked to go to elect a new Council for Midland. Take the time this summer to visit your neighbours and talk about what is working well and what needs to change. Then on October 25th, please get out and vote.
