Ape­ti­tion­with 237 sig­na­tures was tabled at the last coun­cil meet­ing by Marie-francine Beau­re­gard. The pe­ti­tion is for a safe pedes­trian and bi­cy­cle ac­cess to Atto-beaver Park. It was also expressed that when a safe route is de­vel­oped, the plan­ners take into con­sid­er­a­tion the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the street and pre­serve the nat­u­ral beauty of the road.

Frank Wil­son men­tioned that there were still no “Lo­cal truck traf­fic only” signs at the cor­ners of Moul­ton Hill and St. Fran­cis Streets or at the corner of Bowen and St. Fran­cis streets and that truck traf­fic has in­creased sig­nif­i­cantly along St. Fran­cis Street.

Karl Hunt­ing com­mented that the Lit­tle Forks, Con­ley, Sa­muel Gratham area was not plowed un­til Satur­day af­ter­noon. He also spoke of garbage and re­cy­cling bins on the south side of Col­lege that had not yet been picked up.

Anne Veil, who owns a lot next to a street un­der de­vel­op­ment, said she was sur­prised that Sher­brooke does not have a pol­icy that pro­tects ma­ture trees from be­ing cut down by de­vel­op­ers and of­fered any as­sis­tance in de­vel­op­ing such a pol­icy. She also com­mented how dif­fi­cult it was to get an­swers about the de­vel­op­ment of Mar­jorie Don­ald street from the city of Sher­brooke, be­ing trans­ferred to many de­part­ments on the phone.

Coun­cil met with Bishop’s Univer­sity stu­dent and Stu­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil mem­ber, Adam Pe­abody. Un­der the “Clean Com­mu­nity” ini­tia­tive, he is propos­ing a new project to fight graf­fiti in the stu­dent sec­tor. The coun­cil liked the project and will add it to the an­nual com­mu­nity clean-up day on April 21st.
