The North Hat­ley De­vel­op­ment Project en­sured another full house at North Hat­ley’s monthly meet­ing, on Mon­day, with about twenty-three cit­i­zens at­tend­ing. “We passed an im­por­tant res­o­lu­tion re­gard­ing the de­vel­op­ment project,” said Daniel De­cary, the town’s new Gen­eral Man­ager. The coun­cil voted to man­date the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC to pro­ceed in the co­ordi- na­tion of the process to adopt a man­age­ment plan for the flood zone where the de­vel­op­ment project would be built. The same res­o­lu­tion man­dates Ser­vices EXP to com­plete the prepa­ra­tion of its Plan

par­ti­c­ulier d’ur­ban­isme so the Her­itage North Hat­ley Project can move for­ward. Ser­vices EXP had be­gun this plan then stopped when the cit­i­zens be­gan ex­press­ing con­cerns about the flood zone. “Peo­ple have talked a lot about the height of the build­ing and the num­ber of units, the traf­fic and the flood zone. All of those el­e­ments will be treated in the plan,” said Mr. De­cary.

Two coun­cil mem­bers, Mike Munnkit­trick and Alain Beaulieu, were nom­i­nated to sit on a new com­mit­tee for the Scowen Park file. Two more peo­ple, both with ex­pe­ri­ence in the con­struc­tion in­dus­try, were nom­i­nated to the town’s CCUP ( Comité con­sul­ta­tive d’ur­ban­isme et de pat­ri­moine). They are Si­mone Jeadeh and Martin Troy. “They will be quite an as­set to the CCUP with such im­por­tant projects go­ing on,” added the Gen­eral Man­ager.

A first year bud­get was adopted for the RIEM for the new wa­ter treat­ment fa­cil­ity. The “safe” first bud­get has the mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s share of the op­er­at­ing ex­penses at $203,827, and the fi­nanc­ing at $126,459.
