BRUCE GREY MENTORSHIP 504 10th St. Suite 2, Hanover, Ontario p. 519-506-5065 w. brucegreymentorship.ca

Bruce Grey Mentorship officially launched in June 2017 to provide mentoring opportunities for young people who would benefit from additional support and encouragement to reach their potential. We currently serve 16 Mentees between the ages of 6 and 15, through monthly group programs and individual matches. BGM takes a village approach by building a network of positive adult mentors to spend time with and engage our clients through social mentoring and play. This “time spent” is important for building friendships and trust. Individual mentoring helps to develop social skills, confidence and self-esteem. We’re looking for some positive adults to join our team and help make a difference in these kid’s lives. There’s no age limit or skill base necessary to mentor, just a willingness to give your time and attention. To get involved please contact Greg Dow, Executive Director at 519-506-5065, info@brucegreymentorship.ca or visit www.brucegreymentorship.ca

Youth Literacy is a grassroots organization serving the residents of south Grey-Bruce from Kincardine to Dundalk and Chatsworth to Mount Forest. Its core service is weekly one-on-one tutoring sessions for children and youth 6-18, using screened and trained volunteers. It offers learning alternatives; for the past four years, that includes drama workshops, study and exam preparation sessions and presentations on organizing for the school year. Youth Literacy also offers services for adult allies, including training for volunteers, skillbuilding workshops for parents and others; it has offered a one-day conference for all adult allies on learning and creativity and offers sessions to local organizations on topics such as the importance of literacy and poverty reduction. Youth Literacy also celebrates the benefits of literacy through productions and competitions: currently an essay-writing competition for students in Grades 7-12 requires entrants to interview a local senior and create an essay on "My Childhood Home". Youth Literacy serves approximately 70-100 learners and families per academic year.

ADMINISTRATION VOTING 2018 Town of Hanover

INTERNET AND TELEPHONE VOTING The Town of Hanover has selected to use the internet and telephone voting method for the 2018 municipal election. Paper ballots will not be used. Mail-in ballots will not be used. Electors will be able to cast their vote online or by telephone from anywhere they have an internet or telephone connection. Electors will receive a notice in the mail providing instructions and a secure Personal Identification Number (PIN) to use to vote by either the internet or telephone. Electors will be able to vote up to ten days in advance of Voting Day on October 22, 2018. There is no need to wait to vote on Voting Day as there will be no polls.

A Help Centre will be available at the municipal office for anyone requiring assistance.

ARE YOU ON THE VOTERS LIST? The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for collecting information (name, date of birth, citizenship and school support) for municipal and school board elections. In addition, MPAC is legislated to conduct an Enumeration process which includes regular receipt of data extracts from the National Register of Electors (NROE), data received from the Ministry of Government Services for deceased persons, on-going updates of data from MPAC’s property assessment system, and data-matching routine enhancements. Before each municipal election, MPAC provides municipalities with a Preliminary List of Electors (PLE), used by municipal clerks to finalize the Voters’ List. To further enhance MPAC’s Enumeration efforts, the voterlookup.ca online elector confirmation and update service will be reintroduced in early 2018. This online service creates a more efficient method to allow electors to confirm and/or update their electoral information for the purposes of inclusion on the PLE.

BUILDING & BYLAWS GOOD TO KNOW Town of Hanover

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

Land Use Planning

Description You need a building permit if you plan to: construct a new building/ change a building's use/demolish a portion of a building; renovate, repair or add to a building; install, change or remove partitions and load-bearing walls; install new or make structural alterations to windows or doors; build a garage, balcony or deck; installation or repair of storm, sanitary and/or water service; install or modify heating, plumbing, air conditioning systems or fireplaces. 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 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 Residential 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.

BYLAWS Noise All residents of the Town have the right to enjoy reasonable peace and quiet while at home. The Noise By-law protects residents from unreasonable or unnecessary noise. The by-law is actively enforced by the Town’s Municipal Law Enforcement Officer and the Hanover Police Service.

Yard Sales You must register your yard sale with the Town of Hanover. What You Need To Do 1. Download the form at http://www.hanover.ca/yard-sales 2. Deliver in person, mail or email the form to the Municipal office at least 1 week before the sale. You are allowed up to 3 sales each year, at any 1 location. Sales can’t be more than 2 days in a row. You will benefit from free advertising through the Town of Hanover website. ATMOSPHERE / 12


Animal Control Animal owners and those with an animal in their care or custody are to provide the basic requirements for the animal. Dogs must be on a leash when on municipal property, exclusive of the off leash dog park. Do not leave your dog in a vehicle when it is hot, it’s best to leave them at home when possible where they will be more comfortable. As a responsible dog owner don’t forget to get your 2018 dog tag. Vaccination tags obtained from a veterinarian are separate from licensing requirements. Please clean up after your dog.

Clean Yards, A General Guide Hanover has prescribed standards for the maintenance and occupancy of all properties within the Town. All property owners are required to repair and maintain their properties in compliance with the minimum maintenance standards included in the Clean Yards By-law. The following list provides an overview of the Town’s Clean Yards regulations: • All sodded and grass covered areas are to be kept in good living condition and properly maintained, including satisfactory cutting or mowing so as not to present an unsightly appearance. • Properties shall be free of excessive weeds and noxious weeds. • Properties are required to be maintained free of accumulations of garbage, refuse or debris. • Hedges and trees adjacent to a public sidewalk, walkway or roadway are to be cut and trimmed so as to allow safe unhindered passage.

Zoning The Town of Hanover’s Zoning By-law regulates a number of activities and uses on private property. The owner or occupant of any lot, building or structure in any Residential Zone may store or park, not more than one in total, of the following: • A personal travel trailer or motor home; • A snowmobile or boat with accessory trailer; provided the length of such travel trailer, snowmobile or boat and its accessory trailer does not exceed 9 metres in length; The parking or storage shall only be permitted in a carport or garage or in an interior side yard or rear yard not closer than 1.0 metre to any lot line exclusive of any area covered by a site triangle, or in a driveway for a period of time not to exceed 2 months

Parking Over the Sidewalks & Curbs Keeping neighbourhoods safe is the primary purpose of the Traffic By-Law. This is why there are several rules about how a vehicle is parked in a residential driveway. Vehicles are required to be contained on the driveway and are not allowed to overhang the curb onto the road. Doing this can cause a dangerous problem for traffic. As well, vehicles parked in driveways may not block a sidewalk. This is to ensure that they don’t pose a danger to those using the sidewalk by getting in the way of strollers, wheelchairs and pedestrians, and forcing them onto the road. On-Site parking means parking is to be totally on your property.

Master Plan Master Plan In November 2017, Hanover initiated the development of a Master Plan that will guide future decision making of parks, recreation & culture services over the next 15 years. The consulting firm prc solutions has been hired to complete the Master Plan. It has been over 25 years since our last master plan was completed. The recommendations resulted in the development of the Rail Lands Leisure Park area including the soccer fields, planning for trails development, lighting of second Kinsmen diamond and various policy related documents. An assessment of our parks, recreation and culture operations is necessary to ensure we are meeting the current and future needs of our community in consideration of fiscal realities and corporate objectives focused on efficient, effective and sustainable delivery of services.

The key objectives of the Master Plan are:

1. To review our parks, recreation and cultural services and programs in order to: • Develop service profiles. • Improve understanding of the services currently provided so that informed decisions can be made. • Ensure services are being delivered in a manner that meets resident and other user expectations. 2. To provide an opportunity for our residents, users, staff and stakeholders to provide input. 3. To foster collaboration across departments in identifying opportunities for service improvements. 4. To adopt and embrace a corporate culture that is adaptive to a changing environment and is committed to continuous improvement.

5. To identify potential cost savings through increased efficiencies that can be used to support existing and/or new services that align with community expectations and requirements.

Highlights of work completed or in progress: • Review of a variety of background and supporting documents.

• Comparative municipalities confirmed (Parry Sound, Renfrew, St. Mary's, Kincardine and Goderich). Information including inventory of services and facilities and financial data sourced. • Phone survey to receive input from Hanover residents and non-residents. • Received input from indoor, outdoor, arts / culture and community user groups and staff during focus groups.

Next Steps:

• Draft findings and action framework. • Public open house for feedback on draft findings. • Final report presented to Council.

Please Join Us! Master Plan Workshop - Thursday, February 15th at 6:00pm.

Information & updates will be available via the Town website and social media. Contact for more information: Sherri Walden • swalden@hanover.ca • 519.364.2310 x 2123 ATMOSPHERE / 22

Staff members will evaluate your child’s swimming abilities and recommend the appropriate level. Call 519.364.2310 x 2121 to arrange a time.

Appropriate Levels

Your child’s instructor may recommend a change in level if they feel your child is not registered in an appropriate level. Staff reserve the right to move a child if circumstances dictate.

Private & Semi-Private Lessons

Instructors & Assistant Instructors

All classes will be taught by a fully-certified Lifesaving Society Instructor. Our Instructors have spent over 200 hours taking courses and volunteering in Aquatic Instructional Programs to prepare them to teach your children.

First Lesson

In our effort to ensure that your child receives the best possible instruction, we ask that you bring your child’s most recent report card with him/her to the first session. This will help your water safety instructor tailor their classes to effectively meet the needs of each child.

Progress Evaluation

All participants in swimming lessons are evaluated on an ongoing basis throughout the session. Candidates who complete all of the required skills will receive a sticker.

Private and semi-private lessons are available for swimmers who need assistance mastering a particular skill or stroke. A few lessons with private instruction will leave the individual ready to continue with group lessons. All lessons are 30 minutes in length. To arrange private or semi-private lessons call the Aquatic Centre at 519.364.2310.
