Meetings Meetings Meetings

Good Thursday afternoon everyone.  Lots of meetings coming up that will be affecting residents in Wards 1, 6, 7 & 8 and its a lot to tweet so I thought this would be a good spot to post them all.

First off Union Gas is going to be holding an open house to discuss the expansion of the Hamilton to Milton pipeline that will run across Milton.

union gas pipeline

From the UG website:

“Starting in early May 2016, Union Gas is constructing a 20 kilometre, 48-inch diameter steel natural gas pipeline through an existing corridor that already has three operating pipelines. Specifically, work will take place between the existing Union Gas Hamilton Valve Site (located near Highway 6 and Carlisle Road) and the existing Union Gas Milton Gate Station (located south of Derry Road between Ontario Street and Third Line).

Our planned construction completion is the end of October 2016, with restoration and clean up through to the summer of 2017.

We invite you to speak with Union Gas experts at our Neighbourhood Information Sessions in April about what to expect during construction and how to connect with our dedicated Community Liaison, Susan Cudahy, for assistance throughout the project.”

These information sessions are to be held tomorrow at the Milton Memorial Arena (on Thompson Rd beside the Centre for the Arts) starting at 5:30 pm to 9pm.  I will be attending this one as the next one is Saturday April 23rd at the Milton Sports Centre from 2pm to 5pm (Miranda is having her birthday party at that time)

If you have any questions, please let me know.

NEXT MEETING….future elementary school

On Monday April 25th at Milton Council meeting there will be a public meeting regarding lands located at Ferguson Drive and Louis St Laurent (south side immediately across from Craig Kielburger SS) to apply for re-zoning from FD (Future Development) to a site specific institutional Minor (1-A*XXX) zone for a future elementary school.

You can read the report here. 

This is the beginning stage of meetings and reports so no decision will be made and we value the public’s input on this.  If you have any questions, send me an email mike.cluett@milton.ca and I can let you know how you can speak at the meeting or I can forward your comments to staff.

AND finally, also at the April 25th Council meeting, staff will be presenting a report on the re-zoning application for the property 10180 Derry Road (Mattamy Sales Office) and recommending that it will be approved.  From what we have been told by the property owner, there arent any changes planned for the immediate future and it will remain a sales office for Mattamy Homes but changing the zoning now gives them options to when they do want to make changes.

10180 derry rdThe report can be found here.

The changes to the zoning can allow for the following permitted uses:

artist’s studio, bank, commercial school, convenience store, day nursery, dry cleaning depot, medical clinic, office use, personal service shop, restaurant, restaurant (take out) retail store, and veterinary clinic.

As the report says, the site will remain largely as it its exists in its current form, with some modifications to the parking layout to increase spaces as well as an addition right in/right out entrance onto Derry Road.

Again you can delegate at the committee meeting and say comments or ask questions or you can send them through me at my email address mike.cluett@milton.ca

Milton resident Mike Cluett was handily elected Local and Regional Councillor for Wards 1, 6, 7 and 8 tonight.

Cluett, who was first elected to town council’s Ward 6 in 2010, said he was thrilled by the vote of confidence in him.

He celebrated the victory at Shoeless Joe’s where his wife of 15 years was also celebrating her birthday. Cluett added tonight’s victory was a triple celebration since the couple also marked their 15th anniversary in September during the heart of the election campaign.

The Ward 6 councillor announced he was seeking the regional councillor position when 2014 was first ushered in. He filed on January 2.

“This says that hard work and communication with residents is important,” Cluett said of the clear victory.

Cluett took 3,391 votes, while former ousted town councillor Tony Lambert came second with 1,799, followed by Mian Abubaqr, 1,681 and Kristen Collver with 1,026. Figures weren’t official at press time.

“Residents want a vision and they want to make sure that someone represents them,” he added.

Cluett said he’s been attending regional council meetings since early in his term to remain up-to-date on what’s happening.

Cluett is also on the board of the United Way of Milton and the Milton Community Resource Centre.

“The hard part begins now to help grow Milton the way residents want it,” said Cluett. “They want to grow with more balance, with job opportunities as opposed to just residential growth.

“People want to live and work in town then there’s more of a connection to Milton and it won’t be that bedroom community people say it is.”
