WINTER/SPRING 2018 JANUARY – APRIL

Welcome to Coquitlam

Parks, Recreation & Culture Services

You asked, we answered! Winter is on its way with cooler weather and shorter days. You can warm up your winter at one of our recreation facilities. With a ONE PASS you can drop into the pool for a swim or a steam, head to the gym for a workout or try a new yoga class—the options are endless. We recently completed an online survey to find out what type of drop-in fitness classes you want, when you want to take them and how often you want to drop-in. Our new drop-in fitness schedule and offerings reflect what you told us you wanted. Check out what’s available at coquitlam.ca/dropins. Would you like to participate in future surveys, and have your say about what’s happening in Coquitlam? Sign up for Viewpoint, our online survey community. You can anonymously provide your opinion on City issues, plans and services, while staying informed about what’s going on in Coquitlam. Signing up for Viewpoint is an easy way to get involved and have an impact on what happens in your community. Sign up at coquitlam.ca/viewpoint.

As we focus on providing more activities and opportunities to encourage healthy lifestyles today, we are also planning ahead for the growing needs of our community tomorrow. There are a number of older parks in Southwest Coquitlam that require refreshing and/or updating to continue supporting families in surrounding neighbourhoods.

Drawing for Youth 

The Park Blitz began in 2017 and will take three years to complete. It will focus on 12 neighbourhood parks in the Burquitlam, Lougheed and Central Coquitlam neighbourhoods. New playgrounds, landscaping, park furnishings and accessible features are being added to ensure these parks meet the needs of our community for years to come.

POOL RULE REMINDERS No Street Shoes on Deck—please help us keep our pool deck clean! Shoes that are worn outdoors can track in visual dirt, grass, salt and fecal matter. But it can also track in chemicals and bacteria from outside that we can’t see (and do not want to step barefoot in!). If you use footwear on deck, please bring an extra set that are only worn at the pool.

Be cool at the pool—check out our video on pool etiquette! coquitlam.ca/aquatics

LET US HELP YOU WITH YOUR WASTE Since changing to bi-weekly garbage collection, Coquitlam’s waste diversion rate has jumped from 55% to over 71% (2016). That means Coquitlam residents are working hard at separating their green waste, food scraps and recyclables to diverting them from going to the landfill. We recognize it’s not always easy to know where to recycle materials and to get rid of extra green waste. Let us help you!

NEVER MISS ANOTHER COLLECTION DAY!

RECYCLING OPTIONS

Holidays and snowy weather may change your curbside collection day. Never miss your pickup – download our ReCollect app to receive reminders and updates by phone, email, text or Twitter. coquitlam.ca/curbsidecollection.

If you have extra curbside recycling, or Styrofoam you would like to recycle, you can now take it to the City’s recycling depot.

WASTE WIZARD Use this simple, online tool to search the name of an item and let the Waste Wizard provide you details on where to recycle the item. coquitlam.ca/wastewizard

SEASONAL UNLIMITED YARD TRIMMINGS During the fall and spring season we know many residents have extra yard trimmings that do not fit into their Green Cart. The City adds additional trucks to each route to manually collect yard trimmings from kraft paper bags or old cans with “Green Can” stickers on them. Next session Oct. 30 – Nov. 24. Mark your calendar so you can get your all fall pruning done! Visit coquitlam.ca/yardtrimmings for spring dates and details.

LARGE ITEM PICK UP Do you have furniture or other large household items you no longer want? Residents who receive the City’s curbside collection service can have up to four large household items collected each year (July 1 to June 30) by choosing one of the following options: >

Put out 4 items at the same time, once per year, or;

>

Put out 1, 2 or 3 items at different times of the year (to a maximum of 4 per year).

>

To schedule a Large Item Pick Up, call 604-636-3521.

>

This is a free service.

Our trails can be enjoyed by everyone whether it’s for fitness, pleasure or viewing wildlife and nature opportunities. Find more information about Coquitlam’s trails at coquitlam.ca/trails

Weed Out Invasive Plants Invasive plants kill native plants and destroy Coquitlam’s beautiful natural habitat. They spread aggressively and destroy the habitat of fish, birds, and other wildlife. We need your help: learn how to identify invasive plants and avoid planting or buying; never dump garden waste or hanging baskets into natural areas; volunteer for a local weed pull event to help remove invasive plants from a park; and dispose of invasive plant material in your Green Cart.

There’s lots to consider when you live in an urban environment that is so close to nature. Coquitlam has some helpful information and resources so you can enjoy the best of the natural world and protect it at the same time.

Be Bear Smart We live on nature’s doorstep and bears, cougars, coyotes, deer, raccoon, skunks and other wildlife are part of our environment. It is important that we avoid encouraging them to our properties by removing attractants, such as garbage, fruit, pet food and bird seed and preventing access to areas that wildlife may use as a den. Visit coquitlam.ca/urbanwildlife to learn how to make your home and property wildlife-resistant.

Pesticides Say “No” to Harmful Pesticides—We Did! Coquitlam has a Pesticide Use Control bylaw that bans many conventional pesticides typically used for garden and lawn beautification or maintenance. Although you will see them for sale they cannot be used on residential and City land in Coquitlam. There are safe alternatives that are healthier for everyone—people, pets and the environment! For a full list of products you can use and for more information, visit coquitlam.ca/pesticides

Beetlemania The European Chafer Beetle! The European Chafer beetle is an invasive insect pest. Its larvae feed on the roots of grasses, causing serious damage to lawns. It is most visible when raccoons, birds and other wildlife, eager to eat the grubs, begin digging up grasses and damaging turf. The fall is a good time to do preventative lawn maintenance that can help minimize chafer beetle infestation in the spring. Visit coquitlam.ca/chaferbeetle for a year-round calendar of lawn care tips and info on nematodes which are a safe alternative to banned pesticides.

Exhibits Rising Hemlines: An Exploration of 1920's Fashion October 17th 2017 to March 3rd 2018 (at Mackin House) The early part of the 20th century was a period of contradiction, rapid technological change and female emancipation. Following the Great War, a new female silhouette emerged with an emphasis on an androgynous, boyish figure crowned by short bobbed hair. What caused waistlines to drop and hemlines to rise? Join Coquitlam Heritage at Mackin House, fashion historian Ivan Sayers, and other community partners in this exploration of fashion of the roaring twenties.

A Mosaic of Our Past February 16th to March 17th 2018 (at Place des Arts) th

Opening reception, Friday February 16 at 7:00pm at Place des Arts Committed to preserving, honouring and promoting our past, Coquitlam Heritage brings together artworks to explore diverse aspects of our rich natural and cultural heritage. Artists examine, reflect, and draw inspiration from historic photographs, ephemera or artifacts, each with its own story to tell. This expansive interpretation of Coquitlam's past will engage the audience in discussions about diversity and community change over time. Check our website for more exhibit information. We exhibit throughout Coquitlam all year round.
