10.1 Administration Update

11.1 Petition, 2nd St S. Redevelopment
Mayor and Council
I initiated the enclosed Petition. Council is spending money that should not be spent. The proposed 2nd Street Project West entrance signage/rock project; the eleven benches on 14th Avenue from 1lth street south to 15th Street south which cost approximately $74000;and Group Donations, like the $22,000 to the Arts Council; all brought this petition forth.
Money that should be used to improve City infrastructure.
Everyone I spoke to hated the bulged out and narrower intersections like 106 Avenue south and 1n street south- They are not practical especially in winter and snow plowing.
Tax payers should have more open discussion opportunities before decisions are made concerning these expensive projects.
I was amazed at the support this Petition received in such a short period of time. lt tells city council that the citizens of Cranbrook are not happy with the focus leaning toward beautification, by planting
more trees, shrubs and grass.

Dear Mario Scodellaro:
Re: Petition Related to the 2nd Street South Redevelopment proposal
Hi Mario
Thank-you for the petitions which we received today-veryimpressive! l will ensure that this
information is shared with staff and council at an upcoming council meeting.
The petition message is very clear on the proposed upgrading to 2nd Street South and the associated
potential cost. The petition does not say that the citizens of Cranbrook are unhappy with beautifying
Cranbrook by planting trees, shrubs and grass.
It will be interesting to see if a counter petition comes forward from citizens who support the upgraded
approach to the project. Either way we do have to fix 2nd Street South, including the underlying
infrastructure, and all road work in Cranbrook is expensive. lt is unlikely that this project will proceed in
2O14 regardless, due to other priorities.
Thanks for taking the time to do this - it is appreciated!
Mayor Stetski
