many layers of flavour in just that small taste. Imagine now that you did this with your food. First you calm your mind and let your body speak to you of what it needs. Freshness. Vitality. Then you take some time to meet the people growing your food and learn about where and how it was grown. Then take the same attunement as to the wine. Smell the carroty smell of a carrot! Take a crunchy bite and taste the complexities of flavour. Does it taste of newness, the way only a baby carrot, harvested only hours ago can? Does it have a robust crunch and taste of the sweetness brought on by frost? I absolutely love being a vendor at the Eat Well Market and watching the joy and enthusiasm on people’s faces when they discover real food, when they feel deep nourishment, for the first time. “I didn’t know lettuce had flavour!” one woman exclaimed as she picked up an extra bag for her son. “My daughter is struggling with allergies but this food, simply prepared, digests well for her.” “I eat a big salad for lunch and feel

Whether races are run on Main Street starting at Campbell’s Corner and finishing at Queens Hotel, or held at our modern facility underneath the booming grandstands, horse racing is sewn into the cultural fabric of Hanoverians everywhere. The symbiotic relationship characteristic of horse racing and the town of Hanover has worked to inadvertently develop beliefs, traditions, and value systems which have been passed down from generation to generation. A place to gather, explore the thrill of the race, and connect with new and old friends alike. Since Hanover Raceway’s official opening in 1964, and the construction of the grandstands in 1965, patrons have been enjoying the thrill of live entertainment at no cost to them or their families.

“Poor old fool,” thought the well-dressed gentleman as he watched an old man fish in a puddle outside a pub. So he invited the old man inside for a drink. As they sipped their whiskeys, the gentleman thought he’d humor the old man and asked, “So how many have you caught today?” The old man replied, “You’re the eighth.”

2017 Aquatic and P&H Centre Upgrades – Phase 2 The aquatic centre celebrated its’ 20th anniversary in 2016. Phase 1 work was completed in the fall of 2016 and included chemical distribution system upgrades, sauna rebuild, sound system installation, installation of new glass in the window frames and new roof. Phase 2 planned 2017 work includes: •

Changerooms - replacement of plumbing fixtures and partitions, new floor install and painting

Second Level - washroom plumbing fixture and partition replacement, painting

Mechanical - boiler refurbishment and air exchanger work

Waterslide descale and flume partition painting

The improvements ensure our aquatic facility continues to be a functional facility for our patrons and visitors. The Federal government provided 33% funding assistance through the Canada 150 Infrastructure Program for both phases of work. An extended shutdown is required to complete the work tasks planned. The six week shutdown will be August 19 to September 29.

FAQ'S

What is the last day for scheduled pool programs?

Friday, August 18, 2017. Please refer to the summer pool schedule on PAGE 31

When will the pool re-open?

The planned re-open date is Saturday, September 30 with the fall pool schedule.

I have a membership, will it be extended?

Individuals who have memberships that are valid during this time will have thier expiry date adjusted. Further communication will occur with our membership patrons.

I have a punch pass, is there implications for the pass?

Punch passes do not have an expiry date; therefore are not impacted.

Will the P & H Centre remain open during pool shutdown? Yes - see PAGE 25 for building hours.

Why was this time period scheduled for the work?

When planning for an extended shutdown period, staff consider the time period that will have the least impact on the variety of pool programs that occur. (Swim lessons, Board of Education Lessons, advanced courses and public programs)

All Town of Hanover Camp Staff are trained in: Principles of Healthy Child Development, First Aid and CPR Certifications, creative program design to ensure safe, diverse, unique, and age-appropriate programming, positive management techniques, treating all campers with respect, dignity, and honesty.

Things you should know about camp! 1. Camper Pick Up and Drop Off Campers 9 years and younger MUST have adult supervision at all times during morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Please ensure that regular escorts and emergency contacts are recorded with your registration. Only those adults listed will be permitted to pick up your child(ren). Please notify us of any changes in your child’s pick up routine by calling 519.364.2310 x 2134. This is our safe arrival hotline. Children are NOT allowed to leave early without written consent from a parent or guardian. 2. Ages See specific camp description for ages. Participants must have turned the minimum age and not exceed the maximum age by the first day of the camp week that they are registering for. Camp leaders will take age difference into account when programming activities. Our camp ratios offer a maximum of 1 leader to 10 participants. 3. Lunch and Snacks Due to the life threatening allergies that children in camps have to peanuts/nuts, our summer camps have become a “nut aware” environment. We therefore request all parents to avoid sending peanut or nut products to camp. Please send energizing foods including fruits, vegetables and drinks. Limiting “sugary” foods is highly recommended. 4. Medical Information Health and safety is our number one priority. Please ensure that we have up-to-date information about your child’s medical conditions including doctor’s name and an emergency contact that can be reached during the hours of 8:00am-5:15pm. 5. What to Bring Parents will receive a “Parent Handbook” which outlines specific policies and details as to what campers should bring. 6. Swimming Campers enjoy 1 hour of pool time daily. 7. Payment Plan If registering for 2 or more weeks, a credit card payment plan may be utilized. Credit card payment for the first week registering must be processed on the date of registration. The remaining dollar amount will be divided evenly and processed on your credit card the week prior to the start of the program. (i.e. If registered for camp July 24-28, the payment will be processed July 17). Subsidy is available. 8. Behaviours Kamp K utilizes the stoplight system for discipline. Depending on the situation, the following steps will be taken: a) Green Light: You are having a GREAT DAY! b) Yellow Light: A verbal warning: Child has explained to staff what they did wrong and how this behaviour can be corrected in the future. c) Orange Light: 10 minute time out: Staff removes a participant from the activity. d) Red Light: Meeting with Camp Supervisor and/or Program Coordinator and note home to parents. Children are to follow the guidelines and rules that will be discussed each morning, remain with their program leader at all times and play cooperatively. Any offensive language or actions will not be tolerated.

Simple Tips for Saving Water Outdoor Chores • • • •

Use a bucket instead of a running hose for chores Clean your driveway with a broom, not the hose Bathe pets outdoors in an area that needs water Check outside taps, faucets and hoses are free from leaks

In The Garden & On the Lawn • • • • • • •

Harvest rainwater with a rain barrel Ensure decorative water features recycle water Add mulch to improve the water efficiency of the landscaping Minimize grass and select drought resistant plants Limit grass watering - it only needs 2.5 cm a week Once a week deep soaking is more effective than multiple waterings Remember -a brown lawn in the summer is normal

At the Pool • Use a solar cover when the pool isn't in use to minimize water evapouration ATMOSPHERE / 48

When's the best time to water your lawn? Water before 10:00am

Avoid watering late in the evening as this leads to increased disease and fungus. Avoid watering in the heat of the day to reduce evaporation.


Building Planning & Development Building & Development

The primary role of the Building Department is to promote and assist development in compliance with Federal, Provincial, County and local regulations. By enforcing building codes and assisting builders, the Municipality ensures that the structures are safe, not only for today but for many years to come.

Services Building Permits

Contact your local municipal office if you are not sure whether you need a permit for your project. Even though your project may not require a building permit, you must still comply with the requirements of the Zoning By-Law and Build­ing Code. It is the owner's responsibility to ensure that a building permit is obtained when required. You may authorize your contractor or designer to apply for the permit, but the owner should ensure that they have the permit prior to any work starting. For more information, please visit www.hanover.ca/building

Land Use Planning

Land use Planning affects almost every aspect of life in the Town. Good planning encourages public participation and leads to orderly growth and the efficient provision of services and resources. Zoning By-Laws regulate land use (i.e. residential, commercial, Industrial, etc.) and development standards for building on a property, including Consent Applications for the separation of land to form a new lot(s) or adjust boundaries. Minor Variance Applications allow variances to the provisions of the Town's Sign By-Law and Comprehensive Zoning By-Law or to expand land uses that have existed prior to the passing of the current by-law. Site Plan Application - All lands within Hanover are subject to site plan control with the exception of Residentlal Development containing 2 units or less. If you are planning to build a new building or addition, you may be subject to site plan control. A building permit cannot be issued and construction cannot begin unless site plan approval is obtained. For a complete overview of planning, please visit www.hanover.ca/planning.

Zoning Information
