Proposed Multi-Purpose Open Space on Exchange Lands

On August 5, 2014, Council will vote on the proposed Multi-Purpose Open Space remediation plan for the Exchange Lands.

The proposal features remediation elements defined in the 2011 Land Exchange Agreement: a fenced, irrigated and landscaped piece of land restored to a condition satisfactory to the Municipality of Jasper and similar to that originally in place on Parcel R11. The proposal is a contemporary interpretation of the spirit of the Bowling Green – a high-traffic, durable grassed area with trees around the perimeter of the park, providing the foundation for a versatile and central recreation area without compromising any future use of the parcel.

Library Capital Budget Increase

At the July 15 regular meeting, Council approved the increase of the Library and Cultural Centre project budget by $500,000 to allow for payment of outstanding invoices.

As per municipal policy, expenditures exceeding budget limits require approval from Council. The Municipality must continue to pay invoices until the project reaches substantial completion; only then will the mediation process for resolving disputes begin.

Despite rigorous cost control, the current projected cost of completing the project is $9.457M. Council’s recent decision to increase the budget from $8.5M to $9M allows administration to pay outstanding bills, but also allows Council to maintain transparency and political oversight on the project: expenses over the $9M budget will return to Council for approval.

Be a Good Neighbour - Pick Up After Your Pets

If you walk your pets in a community green space, remember to pick up after them!
  • Respect other park users; everyone uses our community green spaces, including kids who may not notice where they’re stepping!
  • Carry a bag with you, pick up after your pet and dispose of the waste appropriately.
  • Bylaw Enforcement Officers will be monitoring problematic areas to encourage responsible behaviour; under the Domestic Animal Bylaw (#126), you could receive a $75 fine for neglecting to pick up after your pet.
