(a)  Notice of Motion – 85 Concession Street, Lakefield – Parking Concerns

Moved by: Deputy Mayor Sherry Senis, Seconded by: Councillor Anita Locke

Whereas the Township has received feedback from various tenants who reside at Peterborough Housing Corporation’s 85 Concession Street, Lakefield property about lack of parking; and

Whereas this lack of parking is of particular concern during the winter season when no vehicles are permitted to park on Township roadways overnight so that the Township can maintain our roadways for public safety resulting in tenants having to park at other off-site locations; and

Whereas the Township worked with Peterborough Housing Corporation (PHC) to explore additional parking options and as a result PHC, in 2012, prepared draft engineering plans for additional parking at their Rabbit Street location that would create 15 +/- more parking spaces;

Now therefore that the Township of Selwyn send correspondence to the Board Members of PHC strongly encouraging the implementation of the additional parking spaces to solve the parking issues being experienced by their tenants and that a copy of the correspondence be sent to Peterborough County Council to bring this matter to the attention of the County Council members that are appointed to the PHC Board as representatives of County Council.
