Attached to these minutes are copies of letters from the Humboldt Catholic School and the Humboldt School Division No. 104 expressing their concerns regarding the rezoning.

 

Mrs. Mary Baran whose house is located adjacent to the proposed development asked if the developer was interested in her property as surveyors were seen in her yard.  Mr. Don Munroe, developer of the proposed project indicated that they were not interested in her property. 

 

Mr. Munroe briefly explained the proposed project and indicated that they’d be willing to work with adjacent property owners to insure an appropriate fence or barrier is constructed between the residential area and the commercial enterprise.  He indicated that the proposed business would employ approximately 50 people and they were an excellent corporate citizen.

 

Mr. Dave Liefers presented an objection on behalf of a number of citizens in the neighborhood which is attached hereto and forming a part of these minutes.  Mrs. Eileen Klitch stated that she is concerned with the safety of school children with another business opening up in the area.  Mr. Munroe stated that with his business at that location students would not have to cross the highway as they currently do to get to 7 Eleven.

PUBLIC HEARING – BYLAW  04/02

CONTINUED:

 

 

Members of the public repeated that traffic is an issue and would become more of an issue with the traffic generated by this business. They also indicated that there is a problem with the high school students parking along 6th and 7th Street blocking residents’ driveways instead of utilizing the student parking lot. 

 

Mr. Liefers also expressed a concern about semi truckers stopping on the highway where there are yellow lines, in order to go to 7 Eleven.  The group indicated that the traffic regulations should be enforced and that truckers should be fined.  They also requested Council’s consideration to possibly implement a “Resident Only” parking area on 6th and 7th Street between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

 

Mayor Korte thanked the citizens for attending the hearing and said that their concerns regarding the traffic situation would be forwarded to the Administration, Promotion and Protection Committee for their review and consideration.

 

BYLAW NO. 05/02:

There was no one in attendance to speak regarding Bylaw 05/02 which was a Bylaw to designate the Water Tower as a Municipal Heritage Property.

 

DELEGATION – FIRE CHIEF:

Mr. Norbert Leblanc, Fire Chief was in attendance at the meeting to request an explanation as to why the Fire Brigade did not receive the requested $1.00 per hour increase for fighting fires.  Council explained that because the fire brigade received a large increase in 2001, there would be no increase for the year 2002.  Mayor Korte thanked the Fire Chief for attending the meeting.
