Ladies and Gentlemen

Spring is in the air; dinner hour is now accented with daylight; snow mountains are melting.  Maybe the groundhog was right!

Monday February 14th is Valentines Day .  Your Council will be gathering at at the NSSRC for its General Committee meeting.  Lots of items on the agenda including:
-          discussion of a “Community Garden” in Midland.  If the idea is well received, staff will hold an open organizational meeting on Feb 28th at
-          update on the progress of our joint policing proposal with Penetanguishene
-          introduction of the  taxi-cab by-law review. Council will consider what topics it will focus on in conducting the review

Thursday February  17th is a busy day. It starts at with the Seniors Council meeting at NSSRC – come and meet our very involved seniors.  Then at the second Joint Urban Growth Node meeting takes place at Midland Secondary School.  The first meeting, attended by some 60 residents of Penetanguishene and Midland established a “list” of areas we should be looking at for joint growth and efficiency. (See attachment)  This second meeting will have attendees select a topic and then brainstorm with a small group about what should be accomplished.  I hope to see you there.

From serious stuff to fun stuff.  Friday February 18th is the start of the Penetanguishene Winterama.  Some of the highlights for politicians will be the parade on Friday at and then the “Turkey Throw” (no jokes) on Saturday at . For more information please consult
