Advance Notes for the Council Meeting of May 26th 2014, 6:00pm


5.1 Heritage  Association: Little Brick Building
See material from Karen Crawford:


6.1 3795
That Council adopt the "Multi-Use Recreation Trail Bylaw No. 3795, 2014"; and further, that
Council direct Administration to proceed with enforcement of this bylaw on a complaint basis.

To ensure a safe environment for pedestrian use, equestrian use was also determined not to be a permitted use on the trail. This restriction has been supported by the former NorthStar Rails to Trails Advisory Committee.
Staff would like to put up the applicable signage outlining the restrictions, but unless in bylaw, there is no enforcement mechanism. Since the trail opened, there have been discussions with bylaw staff and the RCMP, confirming that unless these restrictions are reflected in bylaw, these rules cannot be enforced. By accepting the proposed bylaw, motorized/equine restrictions on the trail can be enforced. Staff anticipate that there will be very low number of vehicle or equestrian use issues along the trail, especially with the addition of signage.

Third reading and adoption of a proposed amendment to redesignate a property located on 30th Avenue from Highway "Commercial" to a "Low Density Residential"
