Time is a very expensive resource. I see mention of setting a timeline, but little mention of keeping to it, or revising it. At the micro level, meetings should not go on til 2.00am, at the macro level discussion should not go on until the project dies through boredom.

The EPC has a number of concerns but the three main issues are:
1) There needs to be a separation between pedestrians and cyclists on Beauregard. The hills will accentuate the speed that cyclists will be travelling at.
2) The City cannot afford to see its tree canopy diminish further. If good trees are to go, then there must be good mitigation elsewhere. This includes the site for the firehouse.
3) The EPC really questions the statement that the increase in population is not going to mean a corresponding increase in the school population.

The draft plan needs a section exploring the potential impacts on the Dora Kelly and Winkler Preserves with ideas to mitigate these effects. The two areas are too precious to leave to chance.

If the Task Force is to finish its task then it has got to avoid second guessing the City's technical staff. Questions about locating the flood mitigation pumping stations, and the permits required are not in the Task Force remit.If a particular subject is coming up on the next agenda, I strongly recommend the members read it up before the meeting in order to reduce time required to explain the issue.
