1 – What is the most important issue facing the Township, and how would you propose to deal with it?

In my opinion one of the most important issues facing the Township is how we develop community plans. There have been several contentious issues over the past few years and we seem to be missing the boat by not including the community until the last minute when it appears to be expected that the community will agree to whatever is presented. Obviously that has not happened.

I would propose to deal with it by developing a formula to create community plans. I would like to see a committee made up of councillors, staff, and members of the community involved, including property owners, schools, recreation, seniors, business owners and others, facilitated by professionals with the tools needed to create the plan, which would then go to the community and to the council. Once a formula is developed, it could be adopted for use in future planning.

2 – Should there be restrictions on development in Willoughby until the situation regarding funding for new schools has been resolved? Yes I believe we need to resolve the issue about the schools before we proceed with more development.

3 – Do you support a pool and recreation centre complex in Aldergrove, and if so, when should construction begin? If not, why not? Yes I do support a pool and recreation centre in Aldergrove and once the size of the pool is finalized and the funding has been ascertained, construction should start as soon as possible. I do not want to see any more delaying tactics and I want to see real physical progress within the year.

4- What type of development, if any, should be encouraged in a new community plan for Brookswood and Fernridge? As mentioned in my first response, we need to hear from the community itself first. So let’s start with a planning committee as outlined.
