Mayor’s Message Welcome to the 2019/20 fall and winter Leisure Guide. As you flip through the pages of this guide you will see that St. Catharines is a city where everybody can play – in all seasons. After a great summer exploring our city, it’s time to take advantage of our recreation centres, arenas and indoor pools to help you live a healthy and active lifestyle. There is a variety of accessible and exciting recreation activities for all ages, interests and skill levels. Festivals and community celebrations continue in the colder weather including Pumpkinville, the Santa Claus Parade - stay tuned for new updates - and the annual New Year’s Day Levee. Local history buffs can take advantage of the downtown ghost walks, the September guided spirit walks at Victoria Lawn Cemetery or visit the St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre to learn more about our city and take advantage of their great events and programming. Head downtown to cheer on the Niagara IceDogs at the Meridian Centre. FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre has produced another excellent line up of shows and events for the 2019/20 season. I look forward with seeing you around the city,

The Garden City

CURRENT

City approves arena strategy

Preparing for the 2021 Summer Games

The Garden City Complex property would be repurposed or declared surplus when there is a replacement facility.

Leisure Guide Edition

The City of St. Catharines is making a $10-million investment, with conditions, towards the 2021 Canada Summer Games to ensure Niagara puts its best foot forward on the national stage. St. Catharines Council provided unanimous approval for up to $10 million in funding towards the Canada Summer Games infrastructure plan, including the Sport and Ability Centre, a facility based around a twin-pad arena. The legacy project, which would be located on the grounds of Brock University, is one of the preferred options identified in the City’s arena strategy to meet current and future needs of all users. Approval is conditional on satisfactory funding and contributions from upper levels of government and other partners, including Niagara Region, its municipalities, and Brock University, as well as the development of terms and conditions of an operating agreement and model, which would require City Council approval. Mayor Walter Sendzik said while the local investment is substantial, funding Sign up at stcatharines.ca/eNewsletter

Fall 2019 and Winter 2020

from upper levels of government and Niagara municipal partners will mean the City’s investment is leveraged to secure a total of $98.8 million in community infrastructure across Niagara. In addition to the 2021 Canada Summer Games, the infrastructure projects will also allow Niagara to host other international, national and provincial sport competitions. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a major legacy project by leveraging funding from other partners, which will be a worldclass facility at a much more fiscally responsible price,” said Sendzik. Work is now ongoing with all partners to determine the future operating model and what the usage allocation would look like to meet the needs of the City’s arena users. Niagara Region won its bid for the 2021 Canada Summer Games in March 2017. More than 5,000 athletes will compete from Aug. 6 to 22, 2021, across the Niagara Region.

St. Catharines Council approved a new arena strategy in June. The document was developed through community feedback, combined with a study of the arenas and their usage, as well as a review of comparable municipalities and industry standards. Recommendations include pursuing the Canada Summer Games Sport and Ability Centre partnership, with the decommissioning of the Garden City Complex for ice-pad usage.

The strategy details several scenarios based on growth needs through 2041. All scenarios include replacement of Garden City Complex, either as part of the Canada Games partnership or a new ice pad recommended to be located north of the QEW. About $15.8 million of capital requirements are anticipated for the City’s arenas over the next 15 years, with nearly half of that attributable to major upgrades required at Garden City Complex. While focused on ice sports, the arena strategy also touches on dry-floor activities, including a recommendation to define capital and operating costs associated with retaining surplus ice arenas as dedicated dry-floor facilities.

Winter Control Whether you want to think about it or not, the reality is that winter is only a few months away. The City is prepared for whatever winter throws our way.

What we do before a winter storm In some instances, crews apply a layer of brine to main roads prior to an anticipated storm. The brine causes the snow and ice to melt and prevents them from bonding to the road surface, which makes plowing the snow more effective. What we do during a winter storm • Main roads are cleared to bare pavement before snow removal begins on other roads. This means some main roads could be plowed several times before plows move to secondary roads. • Once main roads are cleared to an acceptable level crews move to secondary roads and residential roads. • Residential roads are plowed to a centre bare condition, meaning the plow will create one lane for vehicular traffic. Some notes about plowing • Salt is applied to main roads and designated secondary roads. • Sand is applied on residential roads. • Plows have nowhere to push snow except to the curb or the shoulder of the road. Often times, this includes any driveways in their path. When you shovel your driveway, place the snow downstream (right side when facing the road) so your driveway won’t be filled in when the plow comes by. • If you have a fire hydrant on your property please ensure it is accessible in case of an emergency. Prior to the winter, City staff will attach a flag to the hydrant to identify its location.

S’No Parking • The City will declare S’No Parking to be in effect when Environment Canada forecasts a minimum of 10 cm of snowfall within a 24-hour period. • During S’No Parking residents are urged not to park their vehicles on the street. • Residents should plan for off-street parking for at least 72 hours while S’No Parking is in effect. Sidewalks • Property owners are responsible for clearing the full width of sidewalks in front of and/or beside their property to bare concrete within 24 hours after a snow or ice event. • Snow and ice not removed within 24 hours is subject to be removed by the City at the property owner’s expense. Follow these tips to make sidewalk snow removal easier. • Shovel as soon as possible after a snowfall. Once snow becomes packed down it is difficult to remove. • Spread salt onto the sidewalk to prevent snow from adhering to the concrete. • In low temperatures (below -12°C) salt does not work as effectively. Spread sand instead.

How to stay informed: Check out Pingstreet, our website, Facebook, Twitter or local media to see if S’No Parking is in effect or other significant snow events. Visit page 56 to learn more about our communication platforms.

Emergency planning

In St. Catharines we enjoy a typical Canadian winter. However, if you’re not ready for it, that snow day everyone is hoping for can turn out to be more of an inconvenience than you bargained for. Weather conditions can change in an instant, and winter weather can arrive unexpectedly. Ice and snow can cause a number of issues, including power outages, and snowed-in streets. Even on a small scale, a snow storm can shut down the city for most of the day. Be ready for winter by making sure your home emergency preparedness kit has the following: • Food and water for everyone in the home (72-hour supply) • Battery or crank radio • First-aid kit • Flashlights (safer than candles) • Basic toiletries and nonprescription drugs • Cash (in case ATMs aren’t available) • Change of clothes for each person

• Copies of important family records and documents • List of medications • Basic tools • Blankets • Paper and pen • Playing cards (or some form of entertainment) • Make sure everyone in your household knows where the emergency kit is stored

How to stay informed during an emergency Being informed can be as important as being prepared. During an emergency the City provides updates and information on these channels: Facebook facebook.com/CityOfStCatharines

Stay fire safe this winter Smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and home escape plans

Ensure your home is protected with working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms at home as required by the Ontario Fire Code. Knowing an escape plan is also a must.

Heat your home safely Cozying up by the warmth of a fire can make winter temperatures easier to bear. However, an open flame can be dangerous even when heating your home with wood-burning or portable fuel-burning appliances if you’re not careful. Always use a utility lighter or long match to light fireplaces and extinguish when leaving the room or turning in for the night. Never refuel a fuel-burning appliance inside or while in use. Ensure appliances are on sturdy surfaces. Crack a window to ensure there’s always a fresh supply of air.

Sign up at stcatharines.ca/eNewsletter

General safety tips • When cooking never leave food on the stove unattended. • Don’t use the stove, barbecues, propane heaters or other outdoor fuel fired appliances to warm your home. • Ensure space heaters have proper ventilation, as applicable, and clearance from combustibles. • Avoid overloading electrical systems. • Ensure all entry / exits to your home are cleared from snow to ensure you can get out in case of an emergency. Ensure your windows are not frozen in the event you need to use them as part of your escape plan. • Keep fire hydrants on your property free of snow and ice.

Meeting and events calendar

We know it’s not always easy to get to an open house or public meeting relating to a project or issue that’s important to you. EngageSTC is an online tool to share information about City projects and initiatives. You can use it to share your feedback with us through surveys, polls, forums and other tools.

Trail information

To date, the City has sought feedback on a private property tree by-law, its arena strategy, the provincial governance review, the Sunset Beach community vision and more. The site has also been used to accept nominations for Volunteer Recognition Night and the St. Catharines Trillium Awards.

Map with road work / construction information

Residents can also report potholes, graffiti, snow removal, park maintenance and other issues. There’s even an option to send a picture. Residents can sign up for notifications to receive alerts, including water service disruptions, road closures, emergency response activities and other need-to-know information. Use Pingstreet to connect with us anytime, anywhere and stay in the know, on the go.

EngageSTC is a little different than what we’ve used for online feedback in the past, such as having to log in to take a survey. All you have to do is click “Register” at the top of the site, create a username and password and provide your email address, postal code and birth year. What you have to say matters to us, so sign up, be engaged, and share your ideas for making St. Catharines a better place to live, work and play. Have your say, St. Catharines!

Contact us

Want to get in touch by phone? Call 905.688.5600 (TTY: 905.688.4889). You can also email the City with any questions or concerns to citizensfirst@stcatharines.ca. You’re also welcome to visit City Hall in person. Our Citizens First team is ready to assist you Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the second floor of City Hall.
