Councillor Partridge Flamborough E-NEWS March/April Issue #39 2014

Over the course of February and March, public meetings were held with residents, for input regarding the Mattamy phase 2 Spring Creek Development, Carlisle Community Liaison Committee for the Carlisle Well and Storage facility, Flamborough Seniors Advisory Committee and a well-attended Memorial Park Ice Loop Open House. Construction on the new outdoor Ice Loop will begin in August and open in November 2014 for a community Ice Skating party.

I also want to personally thank the residents of Hollybush for participating in the recent traffic calming survey. Volunteers, led by resident Janet Hueglin Hartwick took the survey door to door for each resident to complete. Once staff have compiled the results, the next steps will be to arrange a public meeting in May for Hollybush residents. We will take immediate action on traffic calming !
