SVRA President, Jennifer Hunter, and Park Renewal Committee Chair met with the senior staff in Parks and Rec, Infrastructure on July 20, 2010. Highlights include:
- Updated schedule: The consultation selection process willbe completed by Friday, July 23, so the consultant should be in place by mid-late August. Community consultations are now expected in September and October, and, if required, in December. Continue to watch this space for a new schedule!
- The contract for the actual reonovation will be tendered in late January, so that work can begin as soon as weather permits. The renovation itself will be STAGED so that the park can continue to be used.
- There will be a walkabout at the park at 2pm this Thursday with city staff that Andrew Ignatieff will report out on
- Jennifer has (fingers crossed) succeeded in getting the city to commit to a new bulletin board for the park, in a size and location that suits better. Don’t be alarmed if you see the old one being dismantled.
The Seaton Village website will be only occasionally updated and reviewed over the next two weeks. If you have a comment or a question, be patient…we will get back to you in early-mid August.
