Item No. 8.4 Ouellette Avenue Enhanced Streetscape & Item No. 8.5 Pelissier Parking Garage Tender & 8.3 Award of Tender for Kamloops and Marentette Reconstruction
Simply put – these three projects came in over budget: 75 per cent + 11 per cent + 21 per cent. Hence, although the projects on Ouellette and Marentette/Kamloops had merit – the fact that these projects were grossly over budget required us to change their scope and re-tender at a later date.
Item 11.2 Proposed Budget Timeline: As part of the motion, I asked that Administration report back on changing the scheduling of the Budget Night Council Meeting – to determine whether and how we could spread the final Budget Meeting over several council sessions in order to provide residents and Council with more time to deliberate the budget – and with fresh eyes – rather than the current sessions which often last from 1pm until 2am – 13 hours.
8.13 Recommendation to restrict construction of homes with extended garages: I voted NO on the administration recommendation to implement restrictions on houses with extended garages in new subdivisions. In short, I do not believe that the City should be restricting the choice for home owners. If folks want to have a house with an extended garage that will allow them to maximize living space, have room for their cars and allow them to have a backyard all at an affordable price – who are we to get in their way? Home owners should have choice.
I submitted a petition from the residents of Vanderbilt and Sandpoint streets who remain concerned about basement flooding.
(1) Residents of Sandpoint and Vanderbilt are concerned about the layers of dust coming from the commercial gravel piles on Riverside Drive. I direct Administration to come back with a report on options to address this matter.
(2) Residents on the north side of Riverside Drive are concerned about the state of the breakwall. The ownership of the breakwall has not been determined, and this stands in the way of progressing with maintenance. I ask administration to determine ownership and report back.
(3) A resident recently contacted me because she was injured in one of our large parks and had difficulty directing First Responders to her location. I ask administration to report back on signage & location options for first responders to help them identify location of residents who require their help during emergencies.
