By Bill Freeman
News - Norwood â€“ For the second year in a row, autism awareness got a ďŹ‚ag-raising boost in Norwood. Following through with their commit ment to support World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, municipal staff helped raise

The ďŹ‚ag-raising is part of an effort to increase public awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder and the â€œday to day issues faced by people with autism and their families, says Natasha Bowes, fundraising coordinator for Autism Ontario. This is the second consecutive year in Canada for ofďŹ cial recognition of the NEW HOME worldwide awareness day campaign. One in 94 children in Canada are diagnosed every year with autism and there are 100,000 Ontarians currently living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Bowes says that by participating in an event like Raise the Flag the municipality is sending a â€œloud and clearâ€? message to people and families living in the community affected by ASD â€œthat their struggles Festival Theatre matter to all Ontarians.â€? opens new location.

Trent Hills to tell residents flood proofing homes their responsibility
News - Trent Hills â€“ Residents in lowlying areas wonâ€™t be able to count on the municipality to provide sandbags in future to protect their properties against ďŹ‚ooding. The change in policy, too late to implement this spring, will take effect after Trent Hills has put together an educational program to inform property owners â€œhow they can make improvements to their dwellings more resilient to ďŹ‚ood events,â€? council
The third option, the status quo (â€œrespond no matter what the event and hope the budget works outâ€?) will remain in effect until a new program is developed, but itâ€™s a situation council members want to see end as soon as possible. The reason is money. In 2008 Trent Hills declared a state of emergency to deal with a major ďŹ‚ood that put 500 homes at risk and forced the evacuation of two people; 45,500 sandbags
were ďŹ lled and 33,500 placed around 54 homes. The combined operation, which included more than 1,000 volunteers, cost a total of $173,000 (the municipality received a one-time grant of $57,439 to offset some of its cost). Since then, Trent Hills has had to deal with less severe ďŹ‚ooding, where no state of emergency was declared. The costs were $38,000 in 2009, and $18,000 in Please see â€œResidentsâ€? on page 2

members decided in a resolution passed last week. That was one of three options presented by deputy clerk/manager of protective services Shari Lang, and council made clear with its approval April 1 that the intent is to move the municipality toward the second alternative she presented, that Trent Hills provide â€œno assistance to property owners except for providing access for ďŹ rst responders.â€?

Public meeting will address preferred field house design, location By Bill Freeman
News - Hastings â€“ The preferred location for the proposed Trent Hills field house in Hastings is south of the existing parking area and soccer pitches at Fowlds Millennium Park. Local residents and others interested in the $2,854,000 project will get to hear more about the selection of the preferred option and location at an April 16 public meeting and information session at the Hastings Civic Centre. An earlier public information session hosted by the municipality and consultants from AECOM Canada Ltd. revealed three site options and details associated with the field house project. The April 16 meeting will include a formal presentation at 5:30
p.m. followed by a public information session from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. that will allow those in attendance to talk to municipal officials and AECOM staff as well as to time fill out comment sheets. The air-supported field house will include a 30 metre by 60 metre artificial turf soccer pitch, walking track and golf driving range with a 4,000 square foot change-support building connected to it. The project will maintain the existing outdoor soccer pitch, mini soccer fields and childrenâ€™s play structure; the skateboard park would be relocated to the west to allow for an expanded gravel parking area; the new parking lot would have 154 spaces along with an overflow parking area with 75 additional spaces. There would
also be a bus loading zone. The proposal also includes walkways, a hard surface collection and drop-off area at the entrance to the field house with landscaped green space adjacent to the field house. In the project the existing volleyball court will be removed. The $2,854,000 maximum total includes $1,562,000 for the airsupported field house, $500,000 for site-servicing (water, sanitary, hydro, gas), $200,000 for the gravel parking lot, $50,000 for landscaping, $94,000 for the indoor artificial field house turf, $78,000 for the indoor walking track, $20,000 for the golf driving range and $350,000 for an additional regulation sized soccer field on adjacent land to the west of the

2010. Last year the municipality, assisted by staff and firefighters from neighbouring municipalities, spent $50,000 in the construction of dykes and placement of sandbags around 12 homes in flood-prone areas. The issue, Lang explained in her report, is that the level of service being provided in Trent Hills exceeds that of most municipalities, which have â€œchosen to provide ingress and egress for first response, provide evacuation centres and emergency supplies, but have not extended that to protection of private property (example sandbagging),â€? which is the property ownerâ€™s responsibility. Trent Hills has done its part, spending $120,000 to redevelop five roads in low-lying areas to raise them above the level of the 2008 flood to ensure access for first responders.
Lang also noted in her report that flooding â€œcoincides with the busiest timeâ€? for the public works department â€œwhich means that some projects do not get done.â€? Deputy-mayor Bob Crate said property owners in flood-prone areas â€œhave to start figuring out how to look after their situationâ€? because itâ€™s â€œunfairâ€? to other taxpayers to share the burden of their costs. Councillor Rosemary Kelleher-MacLennan said â€œsome people have ... taken precautions for flood proofing their residencesâ€?, but if the municipality continues its current practice, others in the same situation will â€œget the idea that they donâ€™t have to do anything,â€? in which case â€œweâ€™re rewarding the mediocre and thatâ€™s not right. I donâ€™t think any taxpayer in the municipality would be onside with that.â€? Councillor Bill Thompson said the fire department â€œwill be there to help people get outâ€? but
itâ€™s not the municipalityâ€™s role to protect their property from water damage. Mayor Hector Macmillan agreed change was in order but he advised against telling property owners theyâ€™re on their own on such short notice, when the flood season is so near. He said the municipality should make a list of things residents could do to flood proof their properties, such as raising their buildings, and to find if there is funding available for such improvements. Macmillan noted that when public works crews fall â€œway behindâ€? with their regular duties, â€œother risksâ€? come into play because â€œroads arenâ€™t graded at the appropriate time.â€? Councillor Kim MacNeil suggested â€œthere may be an opportunityâ€? for a local business to provide sandbagging services to residents in low-lying areas, to take the place of the municipality.
