The most important issue I would like to bring to the neighbourhoods attention this month are the discussions now occurring with the Federal Government about the future uses and direction of the Ogden Point site. The James Bay Neighbourhood Environment Assoc. and Working Harbours Group have been participating in these discussions, and so far the tone of these discussions has been cordial. I would point out that this a very large site, and potential land use changes to it could have a dramatic effect on our community. With this in mind, we have asked that the consultant for the Federal Government give a presentation in August to update the neighbourhood on the discussions and ideas to date. Please try to attend, as we want and need your input on this important site. Please watch for the notices soon to be posted in the community. The summer is now upon us, and it would seem that again this year our neighbourhood will look more like a tour bus route and parking lot than a neighbourhood. Over the last several years the number of buses continues to rise. I have heard many complaints of late of buses operating on our turn of the century streets where they cannot negotiate turns properly or safely. The time has come for our municipality to look into the situation and come up with solutions as to where these buses should park, whether it is necessary for them to run incessantly to operate the airęconditioning, and on which streets they may operate on safely.
