An informal session of city council has been called to hear from the developer who is looking to turn a trailer park into a condo-apartment complex.
Residents of the Kingsway Kort trailer park are vehemently opposed to the developer’s plans, which will see them evicted and the land rezoned.
Councillors heard some of their concerns at an informal meeting earlier this month. Now, they’re poised to give the same opportunity to the developer.
They’ll meet informally in council chambers on Monday from 6:30-7:15 p.m.
The city says the meeting was requested by Aaron Dubois of Brandon Evergreen Developments, who wants to address council and answer any questions that councillors may have regarding the tenancy terminations at the trailer park.
The meeting will address only the eviction, not any rezoning of the property.
Following the informal session, the regular council meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m.
Darren Paquin will make a presentation to council on TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline project, followed by an update on Brandon Riverbank Inc. by Bernie Chrisp.
A Grade 6 class from Linden Lanes School will make a presentation on their experience with the recent waste reduction challenge.
Jake Hamm, with the Safe and Warm Committee, will request funding for an emergency cold weather shelter.
Under general business, council will consider an accommodation tax funding request for the 2014 Manitoba Planning Conference, as well as discuss the establishment of a committee to review accommodation tax capital funding, among other items.
Citizen appointments will be made to several committees, and the 2014 schedule of fees bylaw will go through third and final reading.
The council agenda is posted online at brandon.ca.
