Picture This!

The motorcycle training school is totally moving out of Lot 6!  Waking up to roaring engines and trainer mega horn Instruction will be a thing of the past of College Cres. residents.

Thank you Catherine Drea, Vice-President Student Engagement and University Partnerships for listening and your work to finally solving this long time source of aggravation and stress for so many.

Who remembers this?  I hardly got home from the Council Inauguration Meeting when the phone starting ringing about the condition of Penetanguishene Road aka Hwy. 93.

In true East Ender fashion the moment they started planting the new boulevard trees on Blake Street people started asking: What kind of trees are these?  How high will they get?  What will the cost of pruning be because they are being planted under the hydro lines?

Sitting on the Barrie Police Board the past few years has been a very interesting learning curve for me.

I have appreciated the opportunity and feel very proud of Barrie’s Safest City in Canada proclamation due no doubt to the efforts of Chief Greenwood and the Barrie Police Service.

Sam Cancilla A few years back the City was considering allowing Sea Cadets to have Johnson's Beach and give up their site at Bayfield St. Alderman Bonnie Ainsworth saved Johnson's Beach as a beach for us East Enders. Bonnie worked hard to accomplish that. Thanks Bonnie.

Thank you Sam. I was a brand new Councillor and that was a very tumultuous time and issue. Without the influence and help of concerned East Enders we could have very well been euchred out of our beach.

Neighbourhood Renewal Program

At Budget time Mayor Lehman and I brought forward an amendment to the 2014 Business Plan requiring a Neighbourhood Renewal Program be included in the 2015 and subsequent capital plans at a typical funding level of $500,000.  This program puts the City on a path to providing planned renewal and reconstruction work badly needed in many parts of Barrie on residential streets. 

Council also approved a first project named North Shore A.  This neighbourhood is located in the most easterly part of Ward 1 and consists of all or parts of Algonquin, Campfire, Chippawa, Crestwood, Garrett, Indian Arrow, Johnson, Penetanguishene and Shoreview.  Work was scheduled for 2014 and is now underway. Hooray!  

I will continue to advocate for increased funding for this cost effective long-term strategic approach to renew and rebuild roads in existing neighbourhoods.

Near Campus Neighbourhood

 There has been considerable improvement in the neighbourhood during the last couple of years.

 At the cost of blushing this is due mainly to my vigilance and the collaborative effort of City of Barrie Property Standards Department, Barrie Police Services and Georgian College. 

 

North Shore Trail

You are doing a terrific job Bonnie!  You always listen to your constituents and respond meaningfully.  We really appreciate your tenaciousness when it comes to our issue. You have never given up on us.

I am so grateful for your eye for detail.  Sarah Uffelmann
