February 12/2019 Walk and Talk
Written By Brad Sinclair
Looks like Selwyn council will have a very interesting meeting tonight. There is Three parts of the meeting that I am going to watch closely.
First is Guy Hanchet. Guy is coming before Council to ask about the progress on the implementation of the Selwyn climate change action plan. Since I have not seen any information on the proposed plan it intrigues me to know that Selwyn has developed a plan. This plan has not been rolled out to the public as far as I know. Stay tuned
The second interesting deputation is from Jo Hayward Haines. Jo is sending out a rally cry for trees as she calls it. Her recommendation to council is to develop a Tree Conservation Bylaw using Peterborough bylaw 70-120 as an example. According to Jo’s note to council her neighbor removed 12 trees from his property which she felt was devastating. Jo wants to see legislation to protect trees from irresponsible removal from developers and property owners. Her presentation as she says is not just a request for legislation, but it’s also an opportunity for all of us to learn what our shared responsibilities are as we face together the consequences of our often unconscious treatment in the past of the earth we live on.
The third interesting topic is a department review brought forward by Mayor Andy Mitchell. The department he would like to review with objectives and desired outcomes is the planning and building department. This review would be done by a steering committee. The desired outcome is to establish a culture of superior customer service, increase housing inventory and increased economic activity and job creation to name a few objectives.
We will chat later and discuss the outcomes of these and other discussions
