From the Mayor’s Chair – March 7

Check out the latest version of From the Mayor’s Chair, where I break down the decisions of Council in 3 minutes or less.

Highlights from the March 7 Council meeting include discussion and approval of the Official Plan Update, with much of the debate on the allowance for large format retail stores in the downtown, ultimately Council decided to approve certain types of large retail like grocery stores. Council also approved the Revitalization of Breakwater Park including $1.5M in grants which will bump up the renovation work to 2017, and Council approved moving Canada Day celebrations from Grass Creek Park to the downtown for 2017 (see new motion 1) as we mark the 150th anniversary of Canada.
