8.9 – Great Lakes Sustainability Fund: Excellent report and excellent initiative – an application to the Federal Great Lakes Sustainability Fund (GLSF) that will support a pilot project involving Low Impact Design (LID) features such as bio-retention at the South Windsor Recreational Complex parking lot that will help divert storm water from the storm sewers thereby potentially mitigating damage from severe rainfall events – such as the one that impacted Ward 7.  LID projects are being implemented province wide by municipalities looking to lessen flooding during severe weather events.   For example, the City of Toronto is converting parks to serve a dual purpose as retention basins.  Windsor is fairly new to the LID game.  Lessons learned from this LID pilot project will be applied City Wide.

8.26: Metered On-Street Accessible Parking: I asked Administration in February, 2016 to report back on feasibility and cost of free metered parking for residents with Accessible Parking Permits.  Administration reported back and recommended keeping status quo aka NO free metered parking.  I asked that this report be referred to the Windsor Accessibility Advisory Committee for further comment, which City Council supported.
