Chris Neal addresses the public meeting of Corner Brookâ€™s city council on behalf of West Valley Road residents Monday night. The residents, who no longer get mail delivered to their doors by Canada Post, presented a petition asking the city to reduce the speed limit on a portion of the street until sidewalks could be constructed there.
The hearing will focus on the 2012 integrated municipal sustainability plan and 2012 development regulations adopted by the City of Corner Brook on Feb. 25.
Anyone who wishes to object, support or make any comment on the new sustainability plan or the new development regulations will have an opportunity to do so at this hearing, as long as they notify the City of Corner Brook that they wish to make submissions at least two days prior to the hearing.
The sustainability plan is meant to replace the 1994-2004 municipal plan, and the new development regulations are intended to replace the existing regulations adopted in 1994.
The documents pertain to land use within the city.
The public hearing will be held at city hall at 7 p.m. on March 14. For more information on the plan or the hearing, residents can visit city hall or the cityâ€™s website at www.cornerbrook.com.
