Today I met with the Mayor in his office to discuss the following:

(1)   Banwell EA – Tecumseh Road to EC Row expansion

  1. $6.5 M project – or two phases: $3.25M
  2. Expansion from 2 to 4 lanes
  3. Sidewalks & Multi Use Trail
  4. Streetlights

(2)   Sandpoint Beach

  1. $5M project that was contemplated in previous Capital Budgets

(3)   Vanderbilt/Sandpoint Petition

Residents have experienced severe flooding on two occassions in 2010 and 2016 – while some neighbours flooded additional times.

Of interest to the residents are the three current studies being undertaken to get at the root of the problem:

East Marsh Pumping Station Study (2018)

Pontiac Pumping Station Study (2018)

Storm and Sewer Master Plan (2019)

Key questions for residents include: (1) Elevation (2) Storm/Sewer Design

I raised the issue of potentially doing a micro study of this particular neighbourhood.

A neighbourhood meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 5th to discuss the challenges in more detail with our City Engineer.
