Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Hat­ley

Hat­ley mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil meet­ings have been pop­u­lar in the last few months and Mon­day night’s meet­ing was no ex­cep­tion with about twenty-five cit­i­zens present. The town is in the process of chang­ing some of its zon­ing reg­u­la­tions when it comes to trail­ers, an is­sue that is al­ways of in­ter­est to prop­erty own­ers. “We did the first read­ing of a new zon­ing by­law at the meet­ing. With new zon­ing there will be new pos­si­bil­i­ties. We want the new by-laws to be to the sat­is­fac­tion of the cit­i­zens,” said mayor Denis Fer­land. There will be a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion about the new zon­ing reg­u­la­tions on Au­gust 22nd. Mr. Fer­land also men­tioned that Ba­con’s Bay may be­come an area where peo­ple can put up mini-houses in the near fu­ture.

The project to get pri­vate roads on the Hat­ley ter­ri­tory up to safety stan­dards is pro­gress­ing well. When own­ers of these long roads do the nec­es­sary work to bring them up to stan­dards, the town then main­tains them. “Peo­ple seemed sat­is­fied with the ar­range­ment,” said the mayor.

Mr. Fer­land was happy with the Canada Day cel­e­bra­tions on Fri­day at the Hat­ley Com­mons. “The rain stopped in time for the fire­works. There were one hun­dred and twenty cars in the park­ing lot just for those,” he said. The town of Hat­ley pro­vides the fire­works dis­play ev­ery Canada Day.
