Toronto-area residents who install edge markers on their front lawns in an attempt to keep sidewalk plow operators on track are finding the practice to be a hit and miss exercise. Grass along the sidewalk edges is still being gouged. “The (city) councillors are more concerned about how many chickens one can have in their back yard than to take care of this problem," one irate resident said.
A proposed new bylaw in Owen Sound, Ont. will give the city the power to clean up private properties that have fallen to poor standards, including unkempt lawns. The bylaw also forbids the buildup of waste material, including grass or tree clippings, wrecked vehicles, discarded appliances and other garbage.
A backlash of criticim has arisen in the aftermath of Wednesday's city council meeting in Vancouver during which Mayor Gregor Robertson initiated a motion for parks board staff to consider turning part of Langara Golf Course into parkland. What was supposed to be on the table that night was a motion to look into upgrading the golf course's drainage system.
Work to install new irrigation at two Calgary ball diamonds has thrown a curve at a local little league. Thirteen-to-18-year-olds playing in the Bow Ridge Little League will have to look elsewhere for a place to play as the diamonds will be out of commission to accommodate the irrigation work. "We'll literally have to tell these guys, sorry, we can't field a team this year," the league's vice-president says.
Tempers got short during Wednesday's meeting of Vancouver City Council when a discussion about drainage at the Langara Golf Course unexpectedly changed direction into one that explored turning part of the property into a park. Langara, the oldest public golf course in British Columbia, accounts for about 25 per cent of the parks board's annual revenue.
The City of Nanaimo, B.C. will have to come up with a plan to fund millions of dollars worth of sports field upgrades within the next couple of decades. The proposed projects amount to $18.5 million, but the provincial government has said seven of the projects are not eligible for inclusion in the development cost charge program.
