Parking lot discussion

Thanks to everyone who turned up tonight to puzzle out ways to improve the look of the parking lot.  The meeting came up with some ideas, and based on that Wes will be doing up a sketch shortly.  We'll circulate the sketch around the neighbourhood for feedback.

Neighbourhood discussion session Thursday 6.30

Charlie Pearcey has offered the use of his twinestore for any of us interested in getting together on Thursday night for a discussion session.  The City has said that they will consider neighbourhood suggestions for improving the aesthetics of the new parking lot, so if you have any design ideas please come and share them, and maybe we can come up with a consensus.  The City is suggesting a TRACT Consulting proposal to clad the concrete with wood, viewable here and here.   Also if you're interested in getting involved with the proposed Narrows Group, want information or have concerns about it, this is a good forum to discuss that too.
This isn't a special association meeting, it's just a neighbourhood discussion session for anyone interested.  The City won't be there.  Here's a suggested agenda, thanks to Joanne. Thursday, Feb 23rd at 6.30 in Pearcey's Twinestore

Ryan Cleary meeting

MP Ryan Cleary has sent flyers around the neighbourhood and has scheduled a Public Meeting for the Residents of the Narrows, February12th 2-5 PM Foran Room, City Hall, and his office advises:
"This meeting will strengthen and formalize our group’s request to the City Planning Department for a Planning Area Development Scheme.  MP Ryan Cleary will introduce “The Narrows: A Vision for the Gateway to St. John’s ”.  A discussion and formalization of the resident’s working groups will allow the overall group to formally request that the city of St. John’s move forward on this important planning activity.  The Outer Battery Neighbourhood Association will be present and we are hoping to have representation from both sides of the Narrows in order to best move forward. Who Should be there? Residents of Fort Amherst, The Battery, and The Outer Battery."

First plow came down at 12.20pm today to unblock the road from last night's snowfall. Anyone have any comments to make about this year's snowclearing?  Better or worse than previous years?
