Greetings Friends,
Thank you to the hundreds of families and residents who have reached out to me on this file.  The support has been overwhelming and we are just getting started.

As you may already know, on Monday June 25th, I introduced the following Notice of Motion to Council calling for the review of our current driveway widths bylaw and pausing of enforcement.

This important procedural step now sets council on a decision pathway over the summer.  A pathway that will (hopefully) bring some relief to residents over this issue. The process is as follows.

  • June 25 | Notice of Motion appears on the Council Meeting Agenda (complete).
  • July 23 | Council will VOTE  on whether or not to refer this item for council debate & decision.
  • If passed on July 23, the item will be referred to the council meeting on September 10th for a Final Debate and Decision. 
Friends, if you are supportive of a decision to review this bylaw and pause enforcement, it is vitally important that you let your Ward Councillors know before July 23rd.  Delegates ARE NOT permitted at the initial (July 23rd) vote so it is imperative that Councillors are well informed beforehand on the importance of this issue.

As always, please feel free to share this update with others and remind them to sign up here to stay informed.
