More than 1,000 homes coming to Bond Head

DISNEY/PIXAR IS BACK!

BY SEAN PEARCE

spearce@thetopic.ca

In spite of lingering objections, Bradford Council gave the go-ahead to a pair of large-scale residential developments in Bond Head Tuesday. The two applications came from a group of companies affiliated with the Bond Head Development Corporation and propose significant development to the north and south of County Road 88. Together, the two applications will see a total of 1,057 new residential units built in the small hamlet, which currently consists of about 200 homes. “These two applications comprise about two-thirds of the land designated for development,” director of planning services Geoff McKnight said, adding the proposal is contingent on the developers paying the cost of sewer, water and other servicing up front and the commencement of construction on the Hwy. 400 employment lands. An urban expansion has been on See page 8

The bar was set high, but Disney/Pixar’s latest offering is definitely a return to form for the animation studio. Read David Budo’s review of Brave now.

New leisure centre, public library best places to keep cool By Sean Pearce

spearce@thetopic.ca

Trying to beat the heat? Your best bet might be take a dip or catch up on your reading. With a humidex advisory in effect and the temperature hovering around the 30 C mark for the past few days, it can be difficult to keep your cool especially if you don’t have air conditioning. Unlike a few neighbouring municipalities, the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury doesn’t have dedicated cooling stations, director of leisure services Tom Graham explained, but noted residents are welcome to visit any of the town’s publicly accessible buildings during regular hours if they’re feeling a little overheated and need some relief. “People can certainly come to the leisure centre or the library,” he said. “They can go to any public building, really.” The Bradford Public Library is open 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It is closed on Sunday. The new leisure centre, on the other hand, is open seven days a week. Its hours are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday to Friday, and then 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. Recreational swimming times vary, so be sure to check the town’s website for more information. The town’s two new splash pads, at Lions Park and Alan Kuzmich Memorial Park, aren’t quite ready yet, Mr. Graham said, but the

hope is to have them up and running by sometime next week.

‘People can certainly come to the leisure centre of the library... They can go to any public building, really.’ -Director of leisure services Tom Graham

If you can’t make it to the leisure centre, library or other cool spot, another option suggested by experts is to do your shopping when its hottest, because the vast majority of malls and other such retail outlets have air conditioning Extreme heat can be a hazard for anyone, but the risks are greater for older adults, infants and young children, people with chronic illnesses, outside workers, homeless people and low-income earners, according to the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit’s website. Heat illness can result in long-term health issues and even death if left unchecked. If you or someone around you feels dizzy or faint, nauseous, has a rapid heart or other heatrelated symptoms, move to a cool place and drink liquids immediately. Water is best. Heat stroke is a much more dangerous form of heat illness. If someone around you has fainted from the heat or is exhibiting the following symptoms of heat exhaustion: -Heavy sweating;

more remote. As such, human resources and the planning department, for example, are in the front of the building. An area like finance, which doesn’t have too many public visitors, is further away. “We really had the buy-in of the staff and got a lot of input from them too,” said Dawn Hipwell, Simcoe County’s Purchasing, Fleet and Property Department director. One of the highlights of the building for Mr. Teeple are the views. Every department has one.

‘It was different. Sometimes the hard challenges demand the most creative solutions. It was good to have a lot of tough restraints.’ -Architect Rob Knight

Before, he said the only area to have a view of the woods was shipping and receiving. Today scenery is for everyone. Whereas the old building only had outside offices for managers, the design has been reversed in the expansion. Staff have offices on the outside walls and access to the natural sunlight and view of the outdoors from the many large windows. Managers have inside offices with glass walls. The architects were able to save space in the layout by having shared meeting areas.

“One little nice treat we got was we were able to convince people to share meeting rooms,” Mr. Teeple said. Walking through the halls, people familiar with the county’s 16-member municipalities will recognize the names as well. Each is named after a different municipality. Energy efficiency is also a major component of the design. Standing in a room with a lot of natural sunlight, you can notice the lights close to the windows aren’t as bright as those farther away. The lighting system naturally dims and brightens, depending on the outside light. The three arrays of solar panels on the roof should also mean a three-per-cent reduction in the electricity bill. “It takes about a year to get results about how the building is performing,” Mr. Knight said. Staff were moved into their new workspaces in phases. The first happened about a year ago, with the final phase moving in May. So far, the feedback has been amazing. “You’re happy to come into work and people in both areas feel the benefit of the renovations,” said Ms Hipwell. The expansion was designed with room to grow. Right now that space is being rented out to groups such as the United Way of Greater Simcoe County and the Simcoe County Federation of Agriculture. There are about 3,000-square-feet still available for lease. And when the day comes that the county needs additional room, they can grow into it.

Thursday, June 21, 2012

It’s just after the noon hour on a Tuesday and three Simcoe County staffers are taking a break from work in the new Springwater Lounge at the county’s expanded administration centre Below the glassed-in lounge, built at the request of staff, where the women are quietly reading and knitting, colleagues are eating lunch, happily chatting and playing cards in the new café. There are blue picnic tables outside, and beyond that a view of a wooded area. Inside, orange flowers accent the tables, matching the splashes of bright colour that highlight the halls and new features of the building. Although it’s the hottest day of the year so far, you can’t tell inside as the building is cooled and heated by a groundwater system. Water is pumped up from 80 wells 250-feet underground, then is heated or cooled to maintain the indoor temperature. These are just some of the many features included in the county’s $25.3 million renovation and expansion of its administration centre on Highway 26 in Midhurst. Simcoe County’s main hub of activity was built with regional resources and also features solar panels on the roof, and daylight sensors on all the lighting. The project was a challenge for architects Rob Knight, of Barrie-based Ted Handy and Associates, and Stephen Teeple, who’s with

Teeple Architects in Toronto. It entailed renovating the existing administration building, built in the early 1970s, and adding a modern extension that meets Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certificate standards. “It was different. Sometimes the hard challenges demand the most creative solutions. It was good to have a lot of tough restraints,” Mr. Knight said. Standing in what used to be the building’s main entrance, Mr. Teeple and Mr. Knight point out the features of the original building that made them think outside the box in coming up with a design. There was a small lobby and what Mr. Teeple described as a funny layout. It was hard to get to different departments, only offices on an outside wall had access to natural daylight, and the building wasn’t accessible. With the expansion, people naturally flow through the building, and Mr. Teeple said it’s hard to get lost. For first-time visitors, it’s clear where the main entrance is. Once inside they’re greeted by a large, open, lobby with an abundance of natural light and a large customer service area. For accessibility, there are two lifts right at the main entrance. One is right outside Simcoe County council chambers and the other accesses other departments. The building’s layout was designed with the help of county staff. There were meetings with all departments to determine which ones needed easy access and which ones could be

Bond Head will be very different place for its bicentennial

B

e certain to enjoy Bond Head’s 175th anniversary festivities this weekend. It’s safe to say the hamlet will be a very different place by the time its bicentennial birthday rolls around. On Tuesday evening, Bradford West Gwillimbury council approved a pair of development applications that will see more than 1,000 new homes built in the small, yet staunchly proud community of just 500 or so residents. According to town planner Geoff McKnight, Bond Head currently consists of just 200 homes, but will eventually balloon to some 1,500 by the time all of the planned development for the area is brought to fruition. That’s a 650-per-cent increase. To be fair, it’s not like these development applications appeared out of nowhere. An urban expansion of the Bond Head area has been envisioned since at least 2001 and a secondary plan was approved by the Ontario Municipal Board in 2009, so it’s been on the radar for a while. What’s also true is that this development is tied to the employment lands along Hwy. 400 as identified in OPA 15. The idea being that the developers will pay cost of running services out to both Bond Head and the employment lands up front and not start residential development until employment construction is at least under way. Bradford most certainly needs those employment lands for its future well-being and rejecting the applications presented to town council Tuesday could have resulted in a nasty battle before the OMB and put the town in the unenviable position of defending itself against its own policies. However, it all goes back to timing. Eleven residents from Mulock Drive had letters on the evening’s agenda citing concerns about having their street serve as the only access and egress to a development that will see 723 new homes built in their immediate area. A secondary access

point, from County Road 27, is part of the plan, but the roadway allowing it runs across property the developers don’t currently own. “I recognize that the development of Bond Head likely can’t be stopped, nor is that my intent,” said Dave Morton who resides on Mulock. “However, this development should be done properly, in the best possible manner and such that the current residents are disrupted as little as possible. The development in the southeast quadrant of Bond Head should not be permitted to proceed without the applicant owning property that will provide secondary access to County Road 27. “Approval of a design based on the applicant’s wish to own such a property is premature and foolhardy.” It’s for those sorts of reasons that Deputy Mayor Rob Keffer suggested deferring the applications until such time staff and council could get some clarity on whether or not the developers have a back-up plan if they can’t establish a County Road 27 entrance. A little more time would permit staff to get more concrete assurances with respect to the developer’s pledge to service the employment lands and also give everyone, council and the public alike, a chance to digest Mr. McKnight’s hefty report and its various implications. With the exception of Ward 3 Councillor Gary Lamb, that plea for patience fell on deaf ears at the table. It seems deferral is a dirty word among some members of council, but there are times where it’s warranted. This proposal has been in the making for more than a decade and it will probably be a few more years before anything meaningful happens with it, so what’s the hurry? Putting it off for a month would have at least made it appear as though what the residents had to say mattered. Instead, it’s full steam ahead and many in Bond Head will be worrying about the future this weekend rather than celebrating the past.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Thanks for making canine cancer event such a success Re: Walk to end canine cancer comes to Bradford, May 10. On May 27, we held Bradford’s 1st annual Smiling Blue Skies Walk to End Canine Cancer. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and it showed with the attendance. We had 35 registered walkers arrive with their “fur kids” in tow. Everyone was in a great mood for a good walk and some fun with doggie geared games afterward. The raffle table was loaded with all kinds of goodies for pets and owners alike. Refreshments were yummy with the highlight being beautifully decorated cakes donated by the Vey family of Bradford. When all the activities were winding down, we were bursting with pride and gratitude to announce the event had raised just under $14,000 for the Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund. I am thrilled to say that since then we have crossed the $14,000 mark and the donations are still coming in. An event of this size does not happen overnight. Under the guidance of the fund’s founder, Suzi Beber, I was fortunate to be able to put together “Team Bradford” from a group of dedicated volunteers. My co-organizers, Diane Gray (Designs by Diane), Kala Jenkins (Leading Ladies), Susi Wilson, Giselle Arm-

strong, and Kelly Manis, are all responsible for the success of the event. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. We had two student volunteers on the day of the event, Jaden Taylor and Kiana Ng. Thank you both for coming out and helping to make sure everything ran smoothly. We were thrilled to have Tena Kristjansen, from Ruff to Ready, on hand to do a clicker demo for participants. Thanks to Brenda Winter of the LSRCA for selling raffle tickets. Finally, I’d like to thank all of the businesses and individuals who helped fill our raffle table. There are too many to list in this space, but thank you to all. Cancer, as we all know, has, can and will affect all of us somehow at some point in our lives. Just as important though, those pennies can also help to bring comfort to our loved ones during their struggles with the disease, through treatments and palliative care. Whether human or canine, all benefit from research, thanks to money raised through events such as ours. We hope you will be able to join us and/or support us next year.

COUNCIL: Bond Head development applications pass

Develop lands properly or don’t do it at all, resident says From page 1.

the books for Bond Head since at least 2001 when the council of the day passed a new official plan, Mr. McKnight said. A secondary plan for the area was approved by the Ontario Municipal Board in 2009 and a series of public consultations followed in 2010, he said, all of which has led to the pair of applications brought before council. Despite the lengthy history of the proposal, a number of residents cited issues with what they saw. A package of 11 letters from residents along Mulock Drive was presented to members of council all of which objected to the plan that would see their road serve as the only access and egress to the 723 homes that are to be built on the south side of County Road 88. A second access point, from County Road 27, is part of the developer’s plan, but the route runs through property that is owned by another party. “I recognize that the development of Bond Head likely can’t be stopped, nor is that my intent,” said Dave Morton who resides on Mulock. “However, this development should be done properly, in the best possible manner and such that the current residents are disrupted as little as possible. The development in the south east quadrant of Bond Head should not be permitted to proceed without the applicant owning property that will provide secondary access to County

Road 27. “Approval of a design based on the applicant’s wish to own such a property is premature and foolhardy.” Mr. Morton urged the town to push the developers to include a revitalization of Bond Head’s historic village core in its plans and asked council to reject the proposal in its current form. He also suggested that the Bond Head expansion, as outlined in OPA 16, could prove to be another Dissette Streetstyle mess. “We all know how well the expansion of Dissette Street went,” Mr. Morton said. “However, this new town council has an opportunity to make amends and regain some credibility by rejecting this current premature proposal to develop Bond Head and insist it be done right.” Bond Head Councillor Carl Hordyk sought assurances from Mr. McKnight that the developer’s plan would suit the area’s uneven terrain with respect to drainage and run-off and also that the proposed new pumping station would be able to handle all existing and future needs. Mr. McKnight responded in the affirmative on both counts and Mr. Hordyk indicated he had no objections to the plan and stated it was a necessary step toward servicing the town’s employment lands. “I have complete faith in our staff with respect to this proposal,” Mr. Hordyk said. “I don’t want to see any roadblocks put up, because this is tied to one of this council’s No. 1 priorities and that’s the (Hwy.) 400 employment lands.”

Ward 2 Councillor Del Crake agreed. “If we don’t have an industrial taxbase, we’re going to be out of luck,” he said. “We’ve spent many years living off residential taxes and only recently have we had some additional commercial and industrial come into town.” In any event, the town has an obligation to ensure that construction of the new development affects existing residents as little as possible, Ward 3 Councillor Gary Lamb said. “I hear fear, but it’s in the official plan, so it’s done and it’s going to happen,” he said. “However, I’d like to see this happen with minimal impact.” Mr. Lamb also queried Mr. McKnight on what could happen if the town were to reject the applications. Mr. McKnight responded that the developers would have the right to appeal the decision to the OMB. Resident Mikki Nanowski, a former councillor with long-standing ties to the hamlet, is troubled by the prospect of building so many homes so quickly before there are enough well-paying jobs to support them. In addition, she’s concerned that the new development will serve to erase Bond Head’s unique character and replace it with cookie-cutterhome homogeny. “It used to be that every town had its own identity, but we’ve lost that over the years,” she said. “Sometimes you don’t even know what town you’re in anymore.” Furthermore, the fact these applications are coming forward just prior to council’s

summer break and mere days ahead of the Bond Head 175th anniversary celebrations is also disheartening, Ms Nanowski said. “It’s not like we don’t know what’s going to happen to Bond Head,” she said. “We’ve seen it in Bradford; it’s like a snowball effect.” Ms Nanowski wasn’t alone in her concern about the short notice. Deputy Mayor Rob Keffer also took issue with the timing and expressed concern that certain considerations that ought to have been included on the list, such as a requirement that 28,000 square metres of employment construction be underway before residential building permits can be issued, were omitted and that the developer’s plan included a section of road running through land it didn’t currently own. “I thought I’d have some input on (these applications),” he said. “Why wasn’t this brought to a committee of the whole meeting first?” As such, Mr. Keffer suggested that council defer the matter until its Aug. 7 meeting to give everyone, council and the public alike, an opportunity to absorb all of the information that had been put forward. The deferral found support with Mr. Lamb, but was voted down 6-2. On a recorded vote, council granted draft approval for the two applications with Councillors Ron Simpson, Raj Sandhu, Del Crake, Carl Hordyk, Peter Dykie and Mayor Doug White voting in favour, while Mr. Lamb and Mr. Keffer stood opposed. Ward 6 Councillor James Leduc was absent for the vote.

Bradford’s Tori Popowich selected a rather tasty topic for her submission into this year’s Simcoe County Heritage Fair. Tori’s project explored the history of maple syrup and its connection to this country’s past. Maple syrup production has undergone some changes in the centuries since the First Nations discovered it, but, in many respects, it has also remained very much the same, Tori said. “I chose maple syrup, because it goes back centuries in Canadian history - plus, I love it!” she said. “It’s just amazing.” Fortunately, the judges at the heritage fair were pretty sweet on it, too, presenting Tori with a Young Citizen Award and selecting her project along with a handful of others to be displayed at the Ontario Provincial Heritage Fair held at the University of Toronto earlier this month. A natural go-getter, Tori didn’t expect to achieve this kind of success with her project, but is pleased by the recognition of her hard work all the same. “I really enjoy doing extra things and I knew I would feel proud just to do this,” she said. “Now it will also look good on a resume and I’ve gotten the chance to meet a lot of people.” One of those people just so happened to be Ontario Lt.-Gov. David Onley whom she met while in Toronto. On top of that, she also got to take a tour of the CBC’s headquarters on Front Street and try her hand at being a

Now that the provincial heritage fair is behind her, the Grade 5 student at Fred C. Cook P. S. is looking to the national level. As a Young Citizen, Tori received a digital video camera and used it to create a short video about her project. From now until Aug. 7 viewers can log on and vote for Tori’s video in the hopes she’ll be selected as one of 30 finalists. From this field of 30, a panel of judges will select six winning videos. The six Young Citizens selected will win a trip for two to Ottawa to attend the Governor General’s History Awards at Rideau Hall and the National History Forum.

EDUCATION: Farewell to Fred C. Cook P. S.

Hundreds gather to say goodbye to local elementary school By Sean Pearce

spearce@thetopic.ca

About 300 people made the trek to Fred C. Cook Public School to bid the building farewell Tuesday evening. All in all, it was an excellent send-off for the school, said principal Tina DeLaire who took the helm earlier this year. At times, it got pretty emotional for some of those in attendance, she said. “To come together the way we did served as a nice way to bring some closure for people,��� Ms DeLaire said. The evening featured speeches from students and staff members including Ms DeLaire and words were also spoken by Simcoe County District School Board superintendent Paula Murphy and trustee Nicole Barnett-Black.

‘To come together the way we did served as a nice way to bring some closure for people.’ -principal Tina DeLaire

Another big part of the ceremony was a tribute to the man behind the school’s name, the late Fred. C. Cook, Ms DeLaire said. Mr. Cook was a town councillor, a churchman and a fraternal brother, she explained, adding

he was known far and wide for his commitment to the community, his honesty and his understanding nature. Beyond speeches, a slideshow was presented and visitors were able to take themselves on a tour of the school and check out a number of student-created artistic pieces depicting what the school has meant to them over the years. Next year, students will attend nearby Bradford Public School to permit the demolition of Fred C. Cook and the construction of a brand new school on the same property. One could look at it as the end, but it’s also a beginning of sorts noted Ms DeLaire who will take over Bradford Public’s principal duties. “As Dr. Seuss said: ‘Don’t cry, because it’s over. Smile, because it happened’,” she said. Ward 6 Councillor James Leduc attended the farewell festivities for Fred C. Cook and said he was very impressed with what he saw. “I was there at Fred C. Cook for the closing ceremonies,” he told his council colleagues. “It was something else; fantastic.” On top of that, Mr. Leduc also presented a motion at Tuesday’s council meeting intendPHOTOS/PAUL NOVOSAD ed to have the town’s municipal heritage com- Fred C. Cook Public School school council chair person Lynn Shaw cuts into the cake premittee obtain a heritage appraisal report on the appropriateness of designating the former pared to mark the closing ceremonies. Bradford High School portion of Fred C. Cook a protected site under the Ontario Heritage Act. The former high school was built in 1923 and has a lot of history tied up in it, he said, expressing his hope that it will be deemed worthy of designation.

The Town of Bradford is seeking your input on its proposed transit implementation plan. Back in March, following completion of the transit feasibility study, Bradford council directed the active transportation committee to draft an implementation plan and budget for the introduction of transit to the community. The recommended components of the system include a fixed-route community bus to serve the urban area and a fixed-route shared ride taxi to connect with GO Transit and service to the rural areas. With that in mind, a public meeting will be held tonight in the Zima Room of the Bradford Public Library between 5 and 7:30 p.m. A short presentation will be made at 5:30 p.m. and repeated at 6:30 p.m. Project staff will record comments and answer questions. For more information, you can visit the town’s website at townofbwg.com.
