Strongly recommend that there be a full presentation component to the draft development regulation open house since four years has transpired since the last public input on the municipal plan. To date there had been no public input on the development regulations or heritage bylaw. Given that this is an election year candidates and the public need to be fully aware of the contents, impact and ramifications of such going into a new Council and this should be first of mind for the public engagement office, as this is their purpose.

What is the status of the Minicipal Plsn review? It has been under review for six years and out of date for approximately 17 years since the last plan. Likewise the related Development Regulations are even further out of date. How can the municipality operate a modern city in ever changing economic times when the aging demographic is growing without an up to date planning document?

When will the city replace the three vacated municipal planning positions?

What is the status of the new heritage preservation bylaw regulation? When will the public have active participation in its development?

What is the status of the Cycling Network Strategic Plan? Nothing has been accomplished in four years and the city studying it some more. Why was the cycling committee disbanded? What are the results from the Public Engagement survey completed almost a year ago?

Do you think we have a good public engagement system in St. John's ?
