New committee for Scowen Park
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.
