McMAHAN WOODS DEVELOPMENT
Officers of this development requested an oral hearing to discuss their request that a public meeting be scheduled. Council has deferred the request until they can receive a staff report. At present, Simcoe County Council still has not made a decision on the number of allowable lots.
CAWAJA BEACH PARKING STRATEGY
Members of this Beach Assocaition made a presentation at the previous meeting. They proposed to have all roads in their area designated as No Parking and to allow a maximum of 35 permit parking spots. As beach ownership at Cawaja is shared by the Association and the Township, Council did not agree with this request and instructed staff to continue to work with the community toward a mutually agreeable solution. Apparently no resolution has been reached over the past three years regarding this situation.
SITE 41 CELEBRATION
Council approved an in-kind municipal contribution for this Celebration (signs, picnic benches, garbage containers, barriers).
GEORGIAN SANDS WATERMAIN PROJECT
The first phase of this project is complete and Council decided to continue with the project until all of the available grant money is exhausted. An additional $826,452 (2/3 grant money, 1/3 township contribution) will be utilized to replace watermains on Desroches Trail, Gignac Court, Concession 16 West and Concession 15 West.
LAFONTAINE BEACH MASTER PLAN
The first public meeting was held on July 10th to seek unput from the public. According to Councillor Cornell there were approximately 60 people in attendance and the most discussed topic was better access to the water. Consultants are preparing a report and there will be a further public meeting on September 11 in the Council Chambers to discuss their recommendations and the issues which must be addressed with the relevant government agencies.
