REPORTING · 26th April 2010

Debbie Scarborough, Rob Phillips, John Lambert, Andrew Minigan, Luke Houlden and Laura Webb are all scheduled to attend Terrace City Council tonight at 7:30pm to share with the Councillors their visions or to ask for support.

Scarborough is attending on behalf of the Youth Emergency Services Society asking for the City to waive a zoning application fee for their home which caught fire last year.

Rob Phillips and John Lambert are attending to discuss the Centenary Monument Project.

Andrew Milligan will share the details of the Strategic Plan for the Heritage Park Museum. This will include the current situation, the short term goals, immediate needs and long term plans.

Luke Houlden from the Kermodei Tourism Society has been invited back to Council to discuss the running of the Visitor Information center. Last Council meeting the elected councillors questioned the hours of operation and the manner in which it is being run suggesting Houlden come and address the Council body.

Laura Webb will be providing an update on the Terrace Youth Advisory Committee. Along with this update Council is being asked for a letter of support for a grant with the Terrace and District Arts Council.

Development Services is asking the Councillors to close two lane ways used as walking routes by the public. The first is the lane behind Hall Street at Haugland and the other is the path between Eby Street and Munroe which exits near the physiotherapy clinic. The pathway is much like a laneway between Park Avenue and Davis Avenue though the presentation by City Planner Block states the pedestrian access is blocked by fencing. The property of the laneways will be acquired by adjacent property owners or, in the case of the Hall Street lane, incorporated in the City's holdings.
