Council’s Last Meeting of 2016
The agenda is fairly light, with one formal hearing to discuss a proposed subdivision in the Hart, just north of Chief Lake Road.
Council will also be asked to give staff the go ahead to launch a Local Area Service petition for the installation of sewer service to the last part of the Hart Highlands not yet on the sewer system. There are 106 homes on Poyner, Montgomery, Glenngarry, Langley Crescent, Carlton Lane, Killarney Drive and portions of Croft and Winslow. The early estimate of the total cost of the project ranges from $2.3 to $2.8 million dollars. If the majority of property owners, representing more than 50% of the assessed values in the area say yes, then they would each have to pay $22 thousand to $27 thousand dollars in the form of a special tax levy spread over 20 years.
The Community Association strategy will be presented, and calls for Council to approve some recommendations to assist Community Associations over come the challenges they have been facing. Community Associations provide a numer of services to their neighbourhoods, but have been challenged with finding volunteers and attracting residents to be part of their boards.
Council will also be asked to approve $50 thousand dollars for the City of Prince George’s 2017 contribution to the enhanced B.C. Transit service along the Highway 16 corridor.
