ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DISCOVER MORE April Marshall // Town of Hanover

HANOVER IS COLLABORATING WITH OUR NEIGHBOURS Did you know that Hanover is part of the Saugeen Economic Development Corporation region? Participating communities have recently struck a Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) that will recommend direction for community economic development. The committee will share best practices, develop opportunities for networking by acting as a liaison between the business/industrial sector, as well as the community; therefore, assisting with the foundation of collaborative partnerships.

SAUGEEN CONNECT

Connecting Business through Succession Planning, Immigration and Youth

Saugeen Connect is a new collaborative initiative that will address succession planning, workforce development and building human capitol. This initiative will enhance our local economy both in the short and long term by addressing challenges our communities face by connecting business through succession planning, immigration and youth talent. A lack of business succession planning, workforce attraction and youth retention is the leading contributor to poor business retention within community economic development initiatives. Saugeen Connect will assist our communities in attracting and retaining these valuable community assets and ensuring local businesses continue to operate instead of moving or shutting down.

WOWSA The Women of Wellington Saugeen Area (WOWSA) aims to inspire, empower and connect women in business in the County of Wellington and Saugeen River region in Ontario by providing creative education and networking events. After 8 years of connecting, inspiring, and empowering women in the County of Wellington and Saugeen River region, we are thrilled to announce that WOWSA has expanded the Women In Business Network to the Town of Hanover! Sign-up for our newsletters to stay informed on upcoming events like Financial Planning for Women in January and Escape the Winter Blues in February by visiting wowsa.ca.

Age - Friendly Hanover Age - Friendly

Hanover’s Age-Friendly Advisory Committee has actively been meeting since June 2017. The focus of their work has been to create an action plan based on the Needs Assessment Report. The committee’s goal is to provide an action plan for Council’s consideration by February 2018. As well, the committee has provided input to the planning and implementation of the Age-Friendly Speaker Series to be initiated in November 2017. Funding from the Province of Ontario through the Seniors Community Grant Program has allowed the Town to host information series for seniors between November 2017 and March 2018. See below for the Speaker Series information. Another initiative of the committee and grant is to host service agency and organization network development sessions. The aim is to bring together older adult service agencies and organizations to inventory what is available in Hanover, share how this information is communicated and are there opportunities to partner with regards to communication strategies or initiatives.

Committee Members: Ed King (Council representative), Linda Thompson, Norma Graham, Ann Marie Shaw, Jack Lisenchuk, Theresa Seim, Ed Peppler, Dorothy Adams, Sandra Hong, Tim Duivesteyn.

Culture and Heritage Services Hanover Heritage Advisory Committee

The Heritage Committee continues to promote Hanover history awareness, host Heritage events, create heritage displays and document our Town’s history through archive collection (photos, artifacts) and physical property inventory.

Hanover Historic Buildings Story Map

The Heritage Committee has documented the physical property inventory of over 30 Town properties deemed by the committee to be historically important. Almost 80 properties have been identified by the committee to be documented and ‘tell the stories’ of the buildings for the awareness of future generations. In partnership with the County of Grey, ‘Hanover Heritage Story Map’ was created to provide an interactive map with photos, locations and stories about our Town’s properties. This story map will continue to evolve. Sit back and enjoy this virtual tour of Hanover Past! Go to www.hanover.ca/historyand-heritage for the link.

Building Recognition Signs Launched in September 2017, the Building Recognition Sign project acknowledges the historic importance of the building relative to its date of construction, original owner and their occupation. The initial four signs are: Temptations, Lyons & Co, Dutch Deli and Optical Gallery buildings. The signs will be displayed on the exterior of the building and are purchased cooperatively by the building owner and the Town.

Heritage Displays

For a glimpse into Hanover’s past, view the displays created in the cases at the P & H Centre. The displays are ongoing and the theme and information changes every 4 months. 35


Bylaws Snow Removal, Parking & Depositing Snow on Roadways • On-street parking during a snow clearing event can severely slow down route clearing, and in some cases, impedes providing any service at all. Cars are to be kept off the street between the hours of 1:00am until 6:00am. Non-compliant vehicle owners are subject to a fine, and their vehicle could be towed at their expense. This bylaw is proactively enforced from December 1 to March 31.

• Please avoid parking vehicles over sidewalks. This hampers sidewalk snow plowing efforts. • Private snow clearing operators and the public are reminded that it is illegal to push snow back onto the street from private property or parking lots. Property owners and contractors that fail to comply may be ticketed. • When shoveling snow, please don't push the snow out onto the roads. This is dangerous and hampers snow clearing operations. • Hanover Fire Department asks that residents with hydrants on their property assist in keeping them maintained free of snow and ice accumulations. When shoveling, plowing or snow blowing your drive, please ensure that you are not covering the hydrant. Hydrants play a very important part in fire fighting and accessibility to each hydrant is imperative. Thank you to the residents of Hanover for your understanding and continued support in making our streets safer through the winter season.

Dog and Cat Licensing/Registration Cats over the age of eight (8) months require a onetime registration. Dogs over the age of three (3) months require annual licensing and registration. Tags are available at the Town of Hanover Municipal Office and must be purchased before March 31 to avoid additional fees. Proof must be provided that your dog has been vaccinated against rabies. Vaccination tags obtained from a veterinarian are separate from licensing requirements of the Animal Care and Responsible Ownership bylaw. Registration for a tag must be obtained from the municipal office. Cats and dogs are not permitted to run at large on municipal or private property. ATMOSPHERE / 36
