PROCESS MOVING FORWARD

Staff anticipate the following phases for the Official Plan Review

1

City of Waterloo Official Plan Review

The City of Waterloo is undertaking an Official Plan Review! The draft Official Plan has been released chapter by chapter, throughout 2009 and 2010. The complete draft Official Plan is now available to review and is open for comment.

What is an Official Plan?

An Official Plan is the primary strategic document which describes and coordinates how land in the City should be used and developed in both the short-term and long-term. An Official Plan describes the character of the City, how much greenspace there is, how dense it is, how tall buildings are, how the environment is protected, and where growth is directed, among other issues.

Comprehensive Public Consultation (Summer and Early Fall, 2010) Notices of upcoming consultation events during the formal consultation phase of the Official Plan Review will be advertised in the Waterloo Chronicle, on the City’s Facebook site (search “City of Waterloo” on www.facebook.com) and on the Official Plan Review website (www.waterloo.ca/planitwaterloo)

2

Final Plan Preparation (Fall 2010 through end of 2010) In this phase, staff will review, summarize, and, where appropriate, incorporate public comments into a final Official Plan for Council’s consideration.

welcome

Message from the Mayor What a great summer we've had. There has been so much going on in this community. The festival season in Waterloo kicked off in June with UpTown Country, then UpTown Waterloo Jazz Festival in July and the Waterloo Buskers Carnival in August. This year, the Waterloo Public Square was also utilized for part of the UpTown Country festival. It's wonderful to see the Public Square used for a variety of festivals and events. I hope you had a chance to be at the Public Square at some point during our summer. If not, please check our website for all that is planned this fall and winter at the Square. There's much happening in our City, as you'll witness by the many number of activities listed in this Guide that you and your family can participate in. Over the summer, you've also probably noticed all the construction that's been happening at City-run facilities. Many repairs and upgrades are taking place to several of our recreational facilities thanks to the millions of dollars we're receiving from the provincial and federal governments' economic stimulus funds. The Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex Swimplex is undergoing painting, repairs to the hydraulic floor and an overhaul of the mechanical system. This work will be completed shortly with an expected opening of September 20th - just in time to get your family back into the routine of weekly lessons and activities. Also residents on the east side have been eagerly watching construction of fire station no. 4, located just down the street from RIM Park. Stay tuned to our website for details on this new station's grand opening which is scheduled for early September. In October, plans are also in place to open our new premier outdoor sports facility at RIM Park. An economic stimulus grant from the Building Canada Fund - Communities Component provided part of the funding for seven medium-sized outdoor fields at RIM Park to be converted into two artificial turf-lit fields and four natural turf-lit fields. Of the project's $4,893,570 total, $900,000 will come from the Waterloo Minor Soccer Club and $731,190 from the City, with the remainder being split between the provincial and federal governments. These fields will increase the recreational opportunities in Waterloo, and their construction will help stimulate the local economy. If you have any questions about this project, or any others that are underway in Waterloo, please feel free to contact me or your Council member. And, in closing, I would like to remind you that October 25th is 2010 Municipal Election Day. For information about the election in Waterloo, a list of the candidates, ward information and details regarding the two questions being placed on this year's ballot, please visit our website, www.waterloo.ca. And, remember to exercise your opportunity to vote!

Each participant needs to provide their own flotation seat to place the child in during the class. An excellent,vigorous workout while watching your child! Due to age prerequisites you will register the child for this program.

WATERPOLO THIS FALL-TRY IT OUT FOR FREE

During September we have “open” swims where there is no cost or commitment involved, see our website below for dates and times. You do not have to have any water polo experience, you just need to be a strong swimmer. Bring out a swimsuit, a towel & have some fun. At the end of the evaluations you can decide with the coach if this is right for you or your child.

We have been developing youth in K-W since 1976. We have won many provincial championships. We offer water polo for ages 9 and up. Our club is run by enthusiastic volunteers & dedicated coaches. The K-W Water Polo Club is a recognized Sport affiliate with the cities of Kitchener & Waterloo.

in your city Environment & Parks Services— Get Involved! Improve your local park— get involved in the Partners in Parks program!

Partners in Parks

Volunteer with litter clean-up, mulching trails, planting trees, stream enhancement and other maintenance activities to improve your local park!

The Yellow Fish Road™ program is a hands-on environmental project for youth aged 7 and up, to help educate residents about water pollution in their community. Yellow Fish Road™ volunteers paint “yellow fish” symbols next to storm drains and distribute informative brochures to nearby households. Why the Yellow Fish Road™? In most cities, storm drains connect directly to the local waterbody untreated. Anything like litter, salt, soap and fertilizer that runs off lawns, driveways, sidewalks or roads, end up in the local waterbody. These wastes can not only harm fish and wildlife, but reduce drinking water quality for humans. Get Involved Complete paint kits and Yellow Fish Road™ Program Guides are available to help you prepare for painting day.

To register your painting activity in WATERLOO, contact: Environment & Parks Services (519) 747-8643 Email: stewardship@waterloo.ca

Waterloo’s Dog By-laws Don’t forget your leash

Waterloo’s By-laws state all dogs must be leashed except in the designated leash-free areas on the Humane Society property and in the designated area in Bechtel Park. If a dog is found “at large” – without the effective control of an adult and on a leash – its owner may face a fine.

Stoop and scoop

Owners must clean up pet excrement in all public spaces, as well as on neighbours’ lawns and their own property. Failure to “stoop and scoop” also can result in a fine.

Barking dogs

The City’s noise By-laws prohibit persistent barking, whining or calling by any pet at any time of the day. Please try and resolve barking dog issues with your neighbours before contacting the By-law Enforcement Division for assistance. If a resolution can’t be reached, call the Waterloo Regional Police at 519-653-7700 and ask for dispatch.

Excessive Noise Please keep the noise down!

The City of Waterloo has two by-laws to deal with excessive noise. The first restricts people from making, causing or permitting any unusual noise that’s likely to disturb the public and is in effect any time of the day or night - this would include the continual barking or whining by a pet. The second by-law restricts the use of noisy equipment - like power tools - or making certain sounds during specific time periods. For all inquires or complaints on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., contact the City of Waterloo By-law Enforcement Division at 519-747-8785. For after-hour calls or on weekends, call the Waterloo Regional Police (dispatch) at 519-653-7700. Please direct complaints about noise on a university campus to the appropriate security department: University of Waterloo Police Department 519-888-4911 Wilfrid Laurier University Campus Security 519-885-3333
