Many res­i­dents had ques­tions at the Bor­ough of Len­noxville’s last coun­cil meet­ing, held on Novem­ber 26th. Wendy Dur­rant ques­tioned the ex­tra-wide side­walk that was in­stalled in front of the AFT plant and was told that it was in­stalled to slow down speed­ers and that it was to be used by pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists. Bruce Dur­rant asked that a “no park­ing” sign be in­stalled in front of the AFT plant so that trucks would stop park­ing there. His re­quest will be fol­lowed up. Al­fred Whit­tier com­plained about mo­torists speed­ing on Champigny Street and men­tioned to coun­cil that the as­phalt, es­pe­cially on Wil­low­dale Street, was dam­aged dur­ing the re­cent con­struc­tion work done in the Mar­jorie-Don­ald sec­tor. This too will be fol­lowed up. Karl Hunt­ing asked when the report on the her­itage value of the Hunt­ing Dam would be trans­lated into English, learn­ing that it will be done be­fore the end of the year. He also in­quired about the bad con­di­tion of Glen­day Road and if the zon­ing will al­low for the devel­op­ment of the Stu­dent Vil­lage project on Con­ley Street. Bor­ough pres­i­dent David Price an­swered that the project will be given fur­ther con­sid­er­a­tion when the re­vised Land use and Devel­op­ment Plans for Sher­brooke come into force. Mr. Hunt­ing also asked for new de­vel­op­ments re­gard­ing the former Korvette store and the Familiprix con­struc­tion, learn­ing that the owner of the former Korvette store will ap­pear be­fore the court and that the con­struc­tion of the Familiprix should be­gin May 1st.

The city will pro­ceed with the in­stal­la­tion of an ice rink on the Len­noxville Ele­men­tary School field which will serve ci­ti­zens and the stu­dents of both ele­men­tary schools.

The coun­cil passed a res­o­lu­tion to rec­om­mend to the Sher­brooke mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil to re­in­force bilin­gual mu­nic­i­pal ser­vices to the ci­ti­zens of Len­noxville as well as a res­o­lu­tion rec­om­mend­ing that the sig­nage in parks and green spa­ces be bilin­gual.
