=== Vive le CANADA === June 7 Canadian Armed Forces Day

In Canada, Canadian Forces Day is the first Sunday in June and is a celebration of Canada's armed services, their heritage, and their personnel. {Gotta go out and hug a veteran!}


=== from the EDITOR'S DESK ===

+ Political Satire

Normally, I put all the humour/salmagundi at the end, however this tape was just too funny not to tell you about it right away. It was surprising (and shocking of course for Tory stalwart John Crosbie) to learn that the Conservative Party will not allow his son Ches to be a candidate in the coming federal election. On July 2nd, CBC Radio's As it Happens played a tape of a performance Ches was in last fall. It's a take-off of Shakespeare's Macbeth with characters MacHarper and McDuffy. Clever and hilarious. It''s only 2 min. LISTEN 1:57

'MacHarper' duels 'MacDuffy': Ches Crosbie rehearses the Shakespeare skit that may have cost him his candidacy

Ches Crosbie + actor Paul Wilson rehearse their McHarper vs McDuffy Shakespeare skit. http://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-thursday-edition-1.3135487/macharper-duels-macduffy-ches-crosbie-rehearses-the-shakespeare-skit-that-may-have-cost-him-his-candidacy-1.3135490


+ We live in wondrous times! July 3rd: plane flew across the ocean under solar power alone; no fuel. OMG!


+ GRUMBLE -- Alas, sorely need a time planner; not enough time to do all I want to do! May 26 input mtg and June 22 Notes will be in the next issue. This is rather long (but brought it under 100 pages!) trying to get main things in and catch up; may consider a different format in future.

Sorry, this is not what you were looking forward to as summer reading... :-(

+ WVM -- E&OE !

Pls note, these ccl mtg notes are a guide for you -- do watch/listen to the items you want full information about.

Want to get this away from hanging over my head so sending out not as complete as wanted. At least you'll know the part of the ccl mtg you're interested in and can listen to the whole item on the DWV website. {NOTE: It's confusing b/c if you click on 'council videos' [ http://westvancouverbc.swagit.com/live/ ] , you get "stream not found' on a black square, but do not give up. Look at the bar along the top to find what you're looking for.}

My apologies wrt the events and happenings that I didn't spend the extra time to research and recover. Promise to try to do better next time. Subscribers do get a Headsup to let them know about things ahead of time.

There is, of course, the computer industry saying: it's time to shoot the developer and ship the product :-)

{UPDATE: to get this newsletter out, have removed June and will finish for the next WVM}


=== Just in, July 2nd --

NBRHD CHARACTER AND BUILDING BULK UPDATE AT JULY 6 CCL MTG: NO DECISIONS BEING MADE YET

The process of dealing with the issue of housing bulk in WV moves forward at the July 6 Ccl mtg. District staff will make a verbal report and presentation summarizing the engagement work undertaken to date and community input on building bulk, where the District is in this study process, and the next steps for moving the project forward in the fall.

No decisions being made yetNo bylaw amendments, regulations, or guidelines are being put forward at this time, and Council will not be making any decisions at this meeting. The July 6 presentation is for information only.

Next stepsFurther work on the broader issues of neighbourhood character but encompassing housing bulk and related issues will be addressed through the Official Community Plan review process, which begins soon.

= CHARCOAL BARBECUES BANNED IN WV PARKS [OWING] TO WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS

Jun 18 -- Charcoal and briquette barbecues are now banned in all WV parks [owing] to the high fire rating. WV Fire & Rescue Services announced this week that with the current high temperatures and dry conditions, it is not safe to use charcoal or briquette barbecues in parks at this time. Propane barbecues are permitted in WV parks (except Lighthouse Park) until further notice. {Update: Propane now also prohibited.}

= SUMMER LAWN SPRINKLING RESTRICTIONS KICK IN ON JUNE 1

May 29 -- Seasonal lawn sprinkling regulations are in effect from June 1 through September 30.

With this year’s record low snowpack and unseasonably warm start to the summer season, we encourage all residents and businesses to do the right thing and conserve water whenever possible, said MetroV Board Chair Greg Moore.

Watering lawns is permitted in the morning only before 9am, and prohibited during evening hours when demand is highest for domestic uses like dishwashing, laundry, and showers.

Residential lawn sprinkling is allowed as follows:

Mornings only (4 – 9am) on designated days of the week.

Even-numbered addresses can water lawns on: Mondays, Wednesdays, & Saturdays

Odd-numbered addresses can water lawns on: Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Sundays

Sprinkling restrictions are in place because demand for our drinking water doubles during the hot days of summer. Lawn sprinkling restrictions help to conserve water and reduce strain on our drinking water delivery systems.

Did you know...?

One hour of lawn sprinkling uses as much water as 25 toilet flushes, five loads of laundry, and five dishwasher loads.

West Vancouver has a fully-metered water utility – the less water you use, the less you pay!

Work w/ nature, let your grass go dormant (brown) over the summer; it'll green up’ again when it starts raining in the fall.

More info: Metro Vancouver Lawn Sprinkling West Vancouver Water Conservation

Breaking News July 3: CHECK to see if your area has now been limited to watering one day a week.

+ WV COMMUNITY CENTRE SITE PARKING IMPROVEMENTS

Jun 8 -- The parking area in the former tennis courts at the WV Cmnty Ctr site is will continue to be used as parking, but some modifications are required.

The former tennis courts have been used for parking on a temporary basis since 2013.

Council made the decision to keep the area as parking until further notice, and as a result, some modifications are required. The entrance will be moved to the centre to align with the underground parking entrance ramp across Gordon Avenue. A landscape buffer will be installed between the parking area and Gordon Avenue, and the on-street parking will be reconfigured to allow safe access for pedestrians.

The work will take place the week of June 22, and take approximately 3 to 5 days to complete.

The changes will secure the space for public parking in the future, improve pedestrian safety, and better integrate the parking into the surrounding neighbourhood.


+ BACKYARD CHICKENS

This District of WV is considering allowing the keeping of backyard chickens (hens only) and we wd like to know what you think about this initiative. Please take a moment to review the options and share your opinion by taking the survey.

+ National Aboriginal Day

A day recognizing and celebrating the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples of Canada.The day was first celebrated in 1996, after it was proclaimed that year by then Governor General of Canada Roméo LeBlanc, to be celebrated on June 21 annually.

June 21 was chosen as the statutory holiday for many reasons -- including its cultural significance as the Summer solstice, and the fact that it is a day on which many Aboriginal groups traditionally celebrate their heritage.

Overview

The day of recognition came about after a series of calls for such a celebration. In 1982, the National Indian Brotherhood (now the Assembly of First Nations) called for the creation of a National Aboriginal Solidarity Day to be celebrated on June 21. Slightly more than a decade later in 1995, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples recommended that a National First Peoples Day be designated. Also in that same year, a national conference of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people chaired by Elijah Harper, titled The Sacred Assembly, called for a national holiday to celebrate the contributions of Aboriginal peoples to Canada. June 21 often coincides with the summer solstice.[1]

National Aboriginal Day is now part of a series of Celebrate Canada days, beginning with National Aboriginal Day and followed by the National Holiday of Quebec on June 24, Canadian Multiculturalism Day on June 27, and concluding with Canada Day on July 1.

In 2001, mbrs of the 14th Legislative Assembly passed the National Aboriginal Day Act making the Northwest Territories the first jurisdiction in Canada to recognize this day as a formal statutory holiday.[2]


+ JUNE 17 Prime Minister Harper's Statement re Ramadan

This evening at sunset, Muslims in Canada and around the world begin an important spiritual journey as they observe the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar to commemorate the revelation of the Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad.

For those observing this holy month, it is a time for reflection, personal sacrifice of material comforts, and spiritual devotion through prayer, fasting, and charity. Ramadan is also a time to celebrate and reconnect with family, friends, and communities, as well as to reaffirm one’s commitment to uplifting humanity by further assisting those who are less fortunate.

On behalf of all Canadians, I wish Muslims in Canada and around the world a peaceful Ramadan. “Ramadan Mubarak.

+ The Passing of a Great Human Being -- Sir Nicholas Winton

...Winton died on the morning of 1 July 2015 at Wexham Hospital in Slough from a respiratory failure, with his daughter Barbara and two grandchildren at his bedside. He was 106 years old... Excerpts from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Winton

Sir Nicholas George Winton, MBE (born Nicholas Wertheim; 19 May 1909 – 1 July 2015) was a British humanitarian who organised the rescue of 669 children, mostly Jewish, from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia on the eve of the Second World War in an operation later known as the Czech Kindertransport. Winton found homes for the children and arranged for their safe passage to Britain.[1] After the war, Winton did not discuss his efforts with anyone; his wife found out what he had done only after she discovered a scrapbook in their attic in 1988,...

He was born in Hampstead, London, a son of Barbara (née Wertheimer) and Rudolph Wertheim. His parents were German Jews who had moved to London two years earlier. The family name was Wertheim, but they changed it to Winton in an effort at integration. They also converted to Christianity, and Winton was baptised....

Though a stockbroker, Winton was also "an ardent socialist who became close to Labour Party party luminaries Aneurin Bevan, Jennie Lee and Tom Driberg." Through another socialist friend, Martin Blake, Winton became part of a leftwing circle opposed to appeasement and concerned about the dangers posed by the Nazis...

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, on 28 October 2014, Winton said he thought he had "made a difference to a lot of people" and went on to say, "I don't think we've learned anything ... the world today is in a more dangerous situation than it has ever been."

{Think that interview, or one about that time on TV, was when I found out about him. It might have been CBC's Joe Schlesinger who also spoke of him since Joe was one who'd been rescued. An incredible person. And so lucid at 105!}

+ TransLink Referendum

By now you all know it was NO 62% to 38%. Our mayor, Mike Smith -- one of only three advocating 'no' --, spoke well on CBC's On the Coast Thurs (2nd) afternoon. My personal assessment (and heard from others), is that this shd not be interpreted simply as not wanting to pay more taxes (often a reason for rejection), but the overriding revulsion wrt the leadership -- they've made a lot of bad/poor decisions and shd clean up their act first. Confidence has been lost.

Some stats from NSN:

The majority of voters in all three North Shore municipalities voted No. City of North Vancouver voters came down 55.08 per cent against the tax. The District of North Vancouver’s No vote came in slightly higher at 55.39 per cent and the District of West Vancouver’s voters topped local opposition at 55.98 per cent.

- See more at: http://www.nsnews.com/news/updated-north-shore-voters-reject-translink-tax-1.1987254?utm_source=North+Shore+News+Headline+News&utm_campaign=7cd7fa5e4e-North_Shore_News_Headlines_7_3_2015&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_ba3660ab09-7cd7fa5e4e-95889661#sthash.CKarCNjH.dpuf

As one person said, let's lay it at the feet of TransLink leadership. {I ask who's going to pick up the pieces?}

NEWS RELEASE re DONATION OF PHOTOGRAPHS June 3, 2015

Acclaimed Canadian architectural photographers Selwyn Pullan and John Fulker donate their photographic archives to the West Vancouver Museum

In North America, the burgeoning post-war building boom saw a flourishing period of innovative modernist architecture, particularly on the West Coast, and a concurrent demand for photographers. The WV Museum gratefully acknowledges the donation of two major photographic archives from Selwyn Pullan and John Fulker, whose luminous photographs captured the work of many mid-century architects.

Selwyn Pullan photographed projects for BC's leading architects from the mid-40s to the mid-70s, including Ron Thom, Fred Hollingsworth, Ned Pratt, Arthur Erickson, and Barry Downs. With many of their projects now demolished or altered beyond recognition, Pullan's archive forms a crucial record of this definitive architectural movement.


NEXT EXHIBITION: June 27 to August 29

From the Inside Out Integrating Art and Architecture on the West Coast

Opening Reception: June 27 from 2 to 4 pm

A uniquely West Coast style of modernist art and architecture flourished on the North Shore from the late 1940s to the early 1980s. Inspired by the rugged beauty of the coast and its soaring mountain backdrop, aspiring architects sought out sites that tested the limits of building design, and integrated art and a humanistic approach to create a new way of living. This exhibition examines the legacy of several influential artists and architects by showcasing their extraordinary projects alongside artworks and photographs that capture their new forms of architecture and design.

Included in the exhibition are architectural projects by Ned Pratt, B.C. Binning, Fred Hollingsworth,

Arthur Erickson, Bruno Freschi, and Zoltan Kiss, as well as art works by Jack Shadbolt, Gordon Smith, Bill Reid,

Len Norris, Egon Eppich, Wayne Ngan, Kawai Kanjiro, and Shoji Hamada, and furniture designed by Ned Pratt,

Fred Hollingsworth, and Francisco Kripacz. Also included are unpublished original drawings of the Keay Residence by B.C. Binning, and an unbuilt summer cottage designed by Binning for the Keay family. These drawings were recently donated to the WV Museum by John Keay, who grew up in the house designed by B.C. Binning and Consulting Architect Ned Pratt.The Museum gratefully acknowledges the donation of photography archives from Selwyn Pullan and John Fulker, whose luminous photographs showcase the work of so many midcentury professionals. The exhibition highlights the legacy of influential midcentury artists and architects by illustrating the many connections among local artists, architects, and their clients.

SHAKESPEARE!

...Tracey Power's saucy original new musical Miss Shakespeare plays in repertory with an all-female, futuristic adaptation of J. Caesar.

Imagine a world of underground all-female productions during Shakespeare's time, when women were banned from the stage. The result is an uproarious new musical set in a bawdy tavern that tells the story of Shakespeare's daughter Judith (Amanda Lisman) and her crew of ballsy actors with dangerous ambitions to tread the boards on a real stage...

Similarly, women seize power in the Escape Artists' adaptation of Julius Caesar. Set in the year 2415 when a disaster has wiped out nearly all males, J. Caesar sees seven women band together to become an unstoppable human force. This psychological drama about honour, patriotism, and friendship...

A Dram Come True ~~~ 7:30pm, June 5 at Hycroft

Single cask whisky and locally distilled spirits at A Dram Come True

The 13th annual Dram Come True highlights single cask whiskies. Tasting whisky from a single cask is a rare opportunity made even more special by the fact that once it's all been drunk, it's gone for good. This year, the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, which bottles some of the finest single cask whisky in the world, will be pouring seven of their latest bottlings -- a privilege usually reserved solely for society members.

Your ticket gets you full access to the whisky tasting, access to the Tinhorn Creek wine bar, spirits from Odd Society Spirits, chocolate pairing by Chocolate Arts, and appetizers from Emelle's catering. Don't wait to purchase your tickets-this event sold out last year!

Tickets: $120 -- Preview Tasting Tickets (access to bars 45 minutes early): Add $40

Details and to purchase tickets here, http://writersfest.bc.ca/events/dram-come-true.


Hungarian author Laszlo Krasznahorkai, the author of Satantango and The Melancholy of Resistance, among others, has won this year's Man Booker International Prize.

Other features to see will be giant boulders of 100 million-year-old granite stranded by the retreating ice 12000 years ago, remnants of 30 million-year-old volcanoes, concretions in the sandstone, wave-cut notches in the cliff-face formed when the sea level was higher and how Siwash Rock was formed. Low tide at the time of our walk will reveal other features such as wave-cut platforms formed by wave action over the last 5000 years, and how First Nations peoples moved the boulders left by the glaciers to make fish traps and canoe runs.

This will be a three-hour walk beginning at 1pm. Make sure you obtain enough parking time for the 3 hour walk.

> SFU CITY PROGRAM Free Public Lecture

Warren Gill LectureBeyond Architecture as a Commodity: Adding Value through Urban Design

~ 7pm ~ Thiursday May 28 -- Speaker: Architect James Cheng

Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, SFU at Woodwards, 149 West Hastings, Vancouver

Admission is free, but reservations are required. Reserve.

As half the world’s population urbanizes by 2050, new cities spring up instantly, often indistinguishable from each other. Buildings are designed as mere commodities, containers for habitation, or icons for vanity. As technology allows almost any form of buildings to dizzying heights, starchitects are sought to create iconic statements or tourist attractions stand-alone objects without regard for their context or relationships to each other. Vancouver is no exception to these global pressures. Architect James Cheng looks back in order to look forward, and adds his perspective to this urgent dialogue.

ABOUT THIS SERIES

The City of Vancouver Heritage Action Plan period – an initiative that revises how the City’s heritage conservation is managed – is in full swing. It’s been over 25 yrs since the City’s Heritage Conservation Program was formally established and now we have a tremendous opportunity to have a say in the future direction of heritage planning in our City.

Heritage Vancouver is working to help this significant initiative along by being a channel for cmnty engagement on the Heritage Action Plan. We are thrilled to present our series putting heritage and cmnty experts together with the public for conversations around shaping the future of heritage conservation in Vancouver.

Beyond Architecture as a Commodity: Adding Value through Urban Design

Speaker: Architect James Cheng 7pm Thursday May 28

Watch the live webcast. No registration necessary.

As half the world’s popn urbanizes by 2050, new cities spring up instantly, often indistinguishable from each other. Bldgs are designed as mere commodities, containers for habitation, or icons for vanity. As technology allows almost any form of bldngs to dizzying heights, starchitects are sought to create iconic statements or tourist attractions stand-alone objects without regard for their context or relationships to each other. Vancouver is no exception to these global pressures. Architect James Cheng looks back in order to look forward and adds his perspective to this urgent [dialogue]. Details.

This week and May 28 Announcement

From: <john.weston.c1@parl.gc.ca>

Subject: Press Release: Bike Day in Canada (and on the Hill!)

Date: May 28, 2015 at 1:54:51 PM PDT

Bike Day on the Hill: Cyclists and Parliamentarians promote the benefits of bicycling

{PHOTO here}

Champions of cycling: Laurent Brisebois (La Grande Traversée), Sascha Wionzek (Cycling Canada Cyclisme), John Weston, MP (West Vancouver – Sunshine Coast – Sea to Sky Country), Pascal Cyr (La Grande Traversee), Jean-Luc Brassard (Olympic Champion), Jamie Patterson (CAA).

(Ottawa, May 28, 2015) On Monday, May 25, cyclists, MPs and Senators came together on the Hill, accompanied by partner organizations including Canada Bikes, Cycling Canada, the Ontario Cycling Association, the CAA, Envirocentre, and the Ottawa Bicycle Club to promote the many benefits of cycling. The event brought together the cycling community to advocate for the environmental and fitness benefits of cycling, as well as bike-friendly infrastructure as a national issue. Organized by MP John Weston (West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country), Parliamentarians and cyclists joined together for a ride, with bicycles provided by Kunstadt Sports.

An event which supports National Health and Fitness Day, Bike Day on the Hill brought out guest speakers Arne Elias, of Canada Bikes, Jamie Patterson of CAA, as well as Jean-Luc Brassard, Olympic Champion, and Laurent Brisebois of La Grande Traversée, all of whom spoke of the importance of cycling in Canada. Bike Day on the Hill was followed by a Town Hall Meeting to discuss the federal role of cycling in Canada. The meeting’s panel consisted of Conservative MP John Weston, Liberal MP Kirsty Duncan, Senator Nancy Greene Raine as well as Arne Elias of Canada Bikes. Goals were established for the future of biking in Canada, such as encouraging the Federal Government to promote road networks suited to the use of bikes, as panelists worked to discuss Federal government’s role in the issue.

To read about other Bike Day events that were planned across Canada, see Canada Bikes’ website here.

Mr. Weston’s remarks at the Town Hall on Cycling – perhaps the first ever such forum on Parliament Hill – may be found here. http://www.johnweston.ca/?p=9825

A ground breaking day for cycling in Canada; the broadening of the conversation of the role of federal legislators to harness the health, economic, and environmental benefits of getting Canada more bike-friendly. – John Weston MP

This is about moving cycling onto the political agenda federally, and working together as provinces and municipalities to position cycling in Canada’s future. –Arne Elias, Canada Bikes

Ever hear that phrase “It’s just like riding a bike"? It turns out riding a bike isn't actually all that easy. Take this bike, for example. It looks like an ordinary bicycle but with one tiny difference. You may think you can ride it, but I guarantee you’re wrong. http://viewpure.com/MFzDaBzBlL0?ref=bkmk

TONIGHT! A Brief History of the Vancouver Apartment and Condo

There are just a handful of seats left for tonight's illustrated lecture with Michael Kluckner. Take a look at Vancouver’s apartment and condo history beginning with the evolution of the apartment building, from humble flats above stores to the luxurious suites of the 1920s, the walk-ups of the 1940s and the high-rises of the 1960s. Michael also explores the social changes in the city – the passage in 1966 of the Strata Title Act, as well as other forms of collective ownership of buildings – that have turned tenants into owners and investors into landlords.

Tickets will be available at the door, $15/$9 students and 2015 VHF volunteers

Candide is an extraordinary operetta, written during the same period as Bernstein's West Side Story. Candide is based on Voltaire's satirical work from the 1700s, and tells the story of a naïve young man's globetrotting adventures through brilliant music and hilarious dialogue. It is recognized as one of the greatest operettas ever written, by one of the twentieth century's greatest musicians.

Heritage House Tour: Parking, Tickets, and Reminders

After months of planning, the Heritage House Tour is finally here! We are very excited about this Sunday's tour and want to make sure that everyone is ready to get the most out of the day. Below are a number of helpful tips including parking options in the West End, basic tour etiquette and where to get your tickets.

Ticket Locations:

On June 7th there are TWO locations where tickets can be purchased. If you pre-purchased online or over the phone you will have selected the ONE location where your tickets will be held for pick up. Both booths will be open from 9am to 3pm.

Info Booth #1: 188 W 1st Ave (outside JJ Bean False Creek)

Info Booth #2: 6385 Marguerite St (House #8)

Parking:

Finding a place to park at tour homes without obstructing traffic or blocking lanes is the responsibility of tour ticket holders, however we are aware that the West End could be more difficult than other neighbourhoods. We have secured a small private lot for use by tour ticket holders only for the day. Please note there is limited capacity at this lot, and parking is not guaranteed. If space is available, short-term parking (1 hour max) will be by donation. The lot is at Lord Roberts Elementary School, which can be accessed via Pendrell St. It will be marked with VHF signage.

As an alternative there is some free and some metered parking near tour homes on Davie St., Bute St. and Thurlow St. Please plan to park and walk a couple of blocks. The stops in the West End are an easy 5-10 minute walk apart. This offers a good chance to enjoy this lovely neighbourhood, rich with character.

Tour Reminders:

1) Bring your guidebook to every house. It's yr ticket. Visit the homes in any order; you may only visit ea house once.

2) No photography or cell phone use is permitted on tour properties.

3) No pets, large bags or children under 6 are permitted inside tour homes (infants in front carriers only are excepted). Children 6 years and older must have a ticket to enter the homes.

4) You will need to remove your shoes at each tour home. Please wear socks, or bring socks or slippers with you, to avoid walking barefoot through homes. You may also want to bring a reusable bag to carry your shoes. There will be a supply of plastic shoe bags available.

If you have further questions you can refer to your guidebook, call the office before the tour, or ask any of our helpful volunteers on tour day.

Heritage House Tour Sunday June 7th 10am - 5pm Tickets $40 or $30 with valid student ID

Heritage House Tour Add-Ons

There are a few extras included with your tour ticket that you may want to plan for.

House Museums

Roedde House and Colbourne House have been included in the guidebook this year. While not actual house stops, they are worth checking out. Roedde House is situated between the two West End stops and offers an $8 Tea and Tour. Colbourne House is in Marpole and is offering access to the museum with your ticket, as well as a special lunch to tour holders of a gourmet hotdog, drink and cookie for $5.

Eve Lazarus book-signing

Local author Eve Lazarus has written about one of this year's tour homes in two of her books, At Home and Sensational Vancouver. Eve will join us on tour day to sell and sign copies of her books with $5 from every book sold donated to VHF. Eve will be at 6385 Marguerite St. from 9:30am until 1pm. Signed copies of Sensational Vancouver will also be available at Info Booth #1.

JJ Bean False Creek offer

VHF will be stationed outside JJ Bean False Creek for the day at Info Booth #1. Show your ticket at this location on June 7th to receive 10% off your order.

Sponsor booths

VHF is lucky to have a number of sponsors for this tour. As several are from industries related to heritage home maintenance, care and financing, a number will be stationed at tour homes, available to answer questions. For a full list of sponsors visit our website.

Then, in case you haven’t heard of it yet or need a reminder, here’s info on the premiere of the opera written by WV resident Lloyd Burritt.

Miracle Flight 571: An Opera in Concert by Lloyd Burritt

What would you do if you survived a plane crash at 12,000 feet in the Andes?

Take a hike?

This man did! {photo}

At age 22, he and Roberto Canessa, hiked 9 days from the glacier to safety.

No trails, no maps, no GPS.

Just determination.

The true story of Nando Parrado:

Miracle Flight 571: An Opera in Concert

Featuring the singers of Stellaria

Geronimo Mendoza, english horn Benjamin Kinsman, french horn

Ryan Goetz, pianist Derrick Christian, conductor

Can’t make it to the performance, but want to help the cause? Please make a contribution to support Lloyd's new opera. Thank you. Learn more about Miracle Flight 571: An Opera in Concert

Our friend Lloyd is turning 75 in June!

To mark this special occasion, Lloyd has written MIRACLE FLIGHT 571, an opera based on the 1972 airplane crash in the high Andes. This is a true story of disaster, despair, determination, and the triumph of life over death!

After working on the opera for the past 5 years, Lloyd is ready to share his work with you and he invites you to join him for a performance on Sunday, June 14th at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $27.50 and going fast. Don't delay! Book your tickets today.

The Story of a Miracle

In 1972, a plane carrying a rugby team from Uruguay crashed high in the Andes leaving many passengers alive. This is the true story of Nando Parrado, who with Roberto Canessa, trekked from the glacier at 12,000 feet to find safety and rescue for the remaining survivors still on the glacier.

Seventy-two days after the crash, 14 more survivors were airlifted to safety.

Parrado’s story is one of friendship and perseverance overcoming tragedy: "I would live from moment to moment and from breath to breath, until I had used up all the life I had... each step I took was a step stolen back from death.

The music is rich and full of harmony, dissonance, and rhythmic drive capturing Nando’s and Roberto’s determination to survive the unforgiving harshness of their surroundings.

* Comedy of Errors

fyi, it’s a steampunk adaptation. If you know it, you may love it; I didn’t fully embrace it till the second act. it is true however, as the review said it’s Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it. Blows all the preconceptions away.

Well, I didn’t know what steampunk was either so looked it up here it is for you:

Steampunk refers to a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.

FARMHOUSE FEST -- VANCOUVER’S FIRST SAISON & WILD ALE FESTIVAL

http://farmhousefest.com/2015/festival/ {will take place at the UBC Farm]

THE FESTIVAL

We felt it was time for Vancouver to have a unique, style-forward festival. What makes Farmhouse Fest unique? Well, let’s start with the experience of drinking great beer.

WE CHOSE SAISONS AND WILD ALES FOR A REASON

Drinking a great beer is more than just putting the liquid into your mouth and swallowing. It’s an intense sensory event. Look at how the colour of the beer catches the sun’s rays. Listen to the faint pop of the slowly dissipating head. Stick your nose in the glass and breathe deeply. Faint hops? A bit of fruit? Maybe some acid? Then take a sip, close your eyes and enjoy the cool breeze blowing over you.

Hosting a festival outside isn’t just a location variable. It’s a deliberate decision made to reinforce the connection between what’s in your glass, and what’s in your surroundings. At the UBC Farm, those surroundings include forest, hop bines and an apple orchard. Beer doesn’t spring forth from nothingness. It’s planted, cultivated, harvested, and meticulously crafted into a delicious final product.

The Fine Print: All ticket sales are final. This event is 19+ only - no minors allowed. Two pieces of ID will be required for entry. Serving it Right Rules apply. Any person appearing intoxicated will not be allowed entry to the festival. We reserve the right to have security remove unruly or intoxicated persons from the festival at our descretion.

Here’s a list of the beers: http://farmhousefest.com/2015/beer/

{dunno about you but I can’t wait to taste the Passionfruit De Witte! a sour wheat ale with passionfruit Belgian of course}

where? THE UBC FARM

It wouldn’t make sense to host a Farmhouse Festival anywhere but on an actual farm. Luckily UBC has one, so that’s where Farmhouse Fest will be.

The UBC Farm is a 24ha teaching and learning farm located on the south end of UBC’s main Point Grey campus.

The field playing host to Farmhouse Festival is a large, grassy area including a small apple orchard, surrounded by towering conifer forest. We encourage you to bring a blanket, and spread out to enjoy your afternoon.

Plus, there will be a Farmers’ Market held adjacently immediately before the Farmhouse Fest. Peruse the market then wander over to try some beers and have a picnic.

+ SATURDAY

Saturday July 4th -- A stroll through 40 million years of Vancouver’s Geological History

A free public field trip for Nature Vancouver

Trip leader: David Cook, Geologist. Mtg time / location: 1pm in Third Beach parking lot, Stanley Park.

Description: An interpretive walk along the seawall of Stanley Park to learn about the geology of the Vancouver area.

See how 40 to 70 million-year-old rivers laid down sand, silt, clay, and minor coal over a period that included the waning years of the age of dinosaurs. Other features to see will be giant boulders of 100 million-year-old granite stranded by the retreating ice 12000 years ago, remnants of 30 million-year-old volcanoes, concretions in the sandstone, wave-cut notches in the cliff-face formed when the sea level was higher, and how Siwash Rock was formed. Low tide at the time of our walk will reveal other features such as wave-cut platforms formed by wave action over the last 5000 years, and how First Nations peoples moved the boulders left by the glaciers to make fish traps and canoe runs.

This will be a three-hour walk beginning at 1pm. Make sure you obtain enough parking time for the three-hour walk.

Difficulty rating: A3. In other words dead easy.

Mbrshp in Nature Vancouver and registration are not required, however non-mbrs are limited to three field trips.

Contact David at 924 0147 or cookeco2@yahoo.com for further details.

The CAO spoke relative to the oil spill that occurred in English Bay on April 8 including:

it was as a result of a mechanical failure on the interior of a vessel; the Coast Guard was extremely responsive; Emergency Operations Unified Command Ctr set up at Port MetroV with the Coast Guard leading as incident command; there was a comprehensive unified command and coordinated approach right from the start; by April 9 in the afternoon 80 [per cent] of the oil was collected as determined based on the flyovers by the Coast Guard and Transport Canada; the mechanical failure on the interior of the vessel had been repaired and there will be continuous monitoring of the vessel to ensure that there won’t be any more leaks; since April 9, 63km of our shoreline has been assessed and 90% of our shores are clear of oil residue; we have asked the public to stay off the beach while shoreline teams are doing observation and clean-up; short term and long term planning for the clean-up operations; being more proactive in terms of shared protocols; and thanked the Streamkeepers for the work engaging with the public and keeping them off of the beach.

REPORTS

5. 752 Marine Drive (former White Spot restaurant site) - Update on consultation and Council direction for revisions and bylaw preparation (File: 1010-20-12-085) Appendix J – Drawing Booklet, January 2015

At the March 30, 2015 Council meeting, further consideration was deferred to the April 13, 2015 Council meeting. PowerPoint presentation to be provided.

Mayor: Ccl has listened; passed on to staff to make a proposal, bring it to a PH

before passed by Ccl; I’ll make a motion to defer this [8:03]

1 - 2 - 3

MOVED?

MOVED by Smith, seconded by Booth:

THAT the recommendation in the report dated March 9, 2015 re 𤄨 Marine Drive (former White Spot restaurant site) – Update on consultation and Council direction for revisions and bylaw preparation be tabled until the following specifics have been determined:

a) A final plan and commitment by the Devper on traffic reduction through the Marine Dr/Taylor Way corridor

relative to:

(1) Pound Rd, an exit W on Marine; (2) a Taylor Way traffic mgmt plan; (3) War Dance Bridge improvements;

b) A clearly defined reduction in bldg ht and a definitive # of rental units that are supported by demographics;

c) Clarity of the ofc space, childcare space, the supportive housing space, again supported by demographics;and

d) Defined financial benefits in terms of taxes, monetary community benefits, and other public amenities such as movie theatres and specifics such as that.

Council members commented relative to the proposed tabling motion.

NL (CAO) informed that the tabling motion is very specific and relates to this project only, and spoke relative to the OCP and a local area plan, and the project.

Mayor Smith clarified that an applicant has made an application to Council, and spoke relative to variables in the application, questions raised by the public and Council, and the need for specific answers about the project.

Council members commented further relative to the proposed tabling motion.

{where the heck is my rough transcript so we have what they said and answers??? these are skeletal with little info, IOW minutes.}

The question was called on the motion.

CARRIED Councillors Cassidy and Gambioli voted in the negative

MOVED THAT:

1. The results of phase two public consultation for the Devt Applicn, as outlined in the report dated Mar 9 be rec'd for info;

2. Staff work with the applicant team to undertake final refinements to the proposal to achieve:

a. a reduction in the height of the proposed east tower such that it is generally consistent with roof peak elevation of the taller of the two West Royal towers;

b. a reduction in proposed floor area generally consistent with the prev DRC recomm to reduce the height and mass of the proposed west tower (as opposed to reallocating this floor area elsewhere within the devt);

c. related refinemts to architectural design that may be necessitated by the direction for changes in ht, massing; and

d. in consultation with potential non-profit operators, possible adjustments to the proposed childcare facility to ensure suitable design; and

3. Staff bring fwd draft bylaws and a devt permit package for Ccl consideration after final refinements have been made.

Mayor made motion:

{???check}

I strongly believe residential; SqN has plans to devp and PkR plans on their land as well

we must make sure devpd to best advantage of cmnty

M&Ccl -- had a very divisive process with Grosvenor

no prob with that had to or lose the village

Ccl is divided on this this basically defers to applicn and staff

to PH

bypasses a critical step.

can have resid on that site; doesn’t have to be ht proposed; hv to make sure fits in with

we’ve got an unregulated

first I heard of

Cap & Marine was from newspapers

unfair

taxes in NV

1000 NV kids attend our schools

cmnty ctrs

need a planned devt for the entire NSh

APPLAUSE

step back; take a look

???

MB: I agree with the recommendation and the subpoints and add: our staff shd do an independent traffic study

a lot not aware of what is proposed at PkR and we haven’t heard from a lot of ppl

tabling this back [8:08]

process clearer &&&

Cam: briefly b/c you said a lot of things I wanted to say

for years need a &&& plan, not ad hoc

what we want is a cmnty then have owners, planners, come in &&&

PkR came in with &&&

a couple of years

in a lot of ways residential makes sense, near transp

don’t have a clear idea on how much, height

traffic: TWay and Marine will always be a bottleneck

have to look at the whole issue and as the Mayor quite rightly said, an overall plan

NV did it right plan, can see &&&

West Royal without plan, no egress xxx

Squamish have Reserve No 5, devp over next 5-20 years

both CNV DNV [8:12] &&&

not pleased how we got to this point but pleased re ???planning xxx

Mayor: xxx

Cass: thank [8:13]

clear from campaigning ... OCP tired of spot-zoning

had to go fwd with xxx work for populace; with staff

the majority opinion was we don’t want this

APPLAUSE

NG: a little disappointed b/c I spent two weeks writing down

and then the Mayor stole it; but I let him get away with it

had some questions; &&& how do we handle that?

&&&; ppl signed up

Mayor: tabling motion

NG: so can’t speak?

Mayor: they can speak at PQP wch I hope will not be xxx

NG: as Cass said

clear to me &&&; {we’re} meant to represent the cmnty

&&& since the election only a couple in favour; all

700 petition

so, moving fwd not proven

other is to provide leadership wch is why I asked that we split this from the process

still don’t think done a good job; wrt this site not setting a precedent

feel strongly, need a plan for PkR

and I don’t support, wdn’t have, the earlier proposal

want staff and proponent to know, done in a bit of a vacuum

Mr Chalmers re xxx density; he said shd hv asked the DRC; they came back and said uncomfortable; now staff has come comfortable with the ht

&&&; wd like to see signif reductions density/height

midrise 7 - 14 storeys; form relates better and existing

energy efficiency

wd like to see as part of the tabling motion, traffic before come back

Sop: 100 to 150K ppl move through our cmnty every day

asked for a master traffic plan; form a traffic Planning authority for the NSh

bridge difficult all the time

prov matter; prov gave CNV money for Lower Rd

seen, since I came to WV in 1960 &&& [8:20]

plan, road wd swing down N of the bridge

that wd bring a four-lane roadway the back of PkR; wd relieve

many not as old as I am bylaw and police little bldg (?)

line up for day; now almost to bridge head

have some controls wrt lights [8:22]

traffic flowing up TWay, lengthening when ferry comes in xxx

police presence wrt blocking the intersection

xxx; we’ll have beards down to here before that happens

reasonable place for density; don’t look at iconic, look at ???; need rental

amenities, think we can go further

what PkR cd provide not nec money

won’t devp on N side for 25 years; chastise myself and Ccl/Staff not doing.

only a few residents live in Eden Place

Parkade? &&&

a lot of phone calls, some really nasty; a lot really concerned

ppl written in and talked to us

get it out to broader cmnty and see where we’re going with this

in OCP planning process may shine some light on this

look at traffic and PUSH, not just leave us hanging

look at this bldg, ht amenities; support; smart move

ML: end of the beginning but 'not the beginning of the end' {if he's quoting Churchill}

don’t want ppl to leave here with a misconception; this motion is asking for some deliverables; not OCP not &&& [8:26]

going to come back sooner rather than later

talking about a set of deliverables, going to get to the same place just following a diff path

don’t think we’ve necessarily bought us anything

not new OCP or Local Area Plan

this motion is asking for deliverables to come back

Mayor: this was tabling but now talking. wd ask to confine to tabling

Cass: my take

ht, massing, and density

if they don’t come back

not WarDance, cinema, xxx iconic blocked, a bridge in 1938; Sentinel Hill, etc

APPLAUSE

Sop: if this to go to PH don’t know if it wd???

issues; going to have to get before the broader public

Cam: am somewhat confused after Cclr Lewis....

{GALLERY: "Yaahs"}

Cam: &&& [8:30]; Mayor spoke of xxx

reality, take what NG and Cass said all agree too dense and too high

I’m not qualified to make that decision

if 14 - 17, we’re throwing darts at a wall

{GET THESE!}

shd be doing: &&&

If I were to insist on one thing in this motion is that we come up with a plan for PkR

APPLAUSE

don’t want to torture xxx

tabling come back with more plans

so we can judge the merits of this proposal, so not ready, fire, aim need clarity

{from gallery HEAR HEAR!}

that’s my understanding too

{Applause}

CAO: over last two years got us here, staff, xxx consulting &&&

the tabling motion relates to this proposal only

ht, rental, reduction in traffic where we know we can; Pound Rd, WarDance, TWay; defined financial benefits and other CACs

all relate specially to this project; xxx

What Cclr Cam is suggesting is wait until an OCP and an LAP are done

then this proj; those are v diff

tabling 3 - 6 mos; LAP, looking at two years

Mayor: trying to clarify my intention

landowner made an applicn; two variables: close those two until we find ourselves in a PH

number of Qs raised by public, Ccl, &&&

we need specific answers so when it comes back to Ccl we’ll know # of units, traffic; all the unknowns will be closed; ev will be able to vote yes or no

that is basically the intent; table what’s before us now; tighten up

NG: thank you for clarifying for all of us and the public

so this proj will come back in 3 - 6 mos

alternative is to defeat and make a diff motion local area plan before bringing this back

strongly feel this does set a precedent

batted this around for two years; DRC 5 or 6 times who also didn’t know what to

reason said 7 to 14

none of us experts; &&& public

not able to support unless OCP first; if won’t add as a friendly amendment

MB: the motion I seconded was to table consideration of the motion before us; have to postpone to a future public mtg or indefinitely

a cpl of comments

am hearing that Ccl isn’t ready to decide on the motion before us, for diff reasons

the cmnty, a large percentage is opposed

a cmnty we haven’t heard of supporting details

a really serious decision what goes on that site will be with us for a very long time

reason for tabling, we need to postpone consideration, put this motion on hold; then staff come back

Mayor: in favour?

{passes with Cass and NG opposed}

Mayor: ppl can come back at PQP

and I didn't call you re Item 9 b/c you spoke at the PH so I assumed

CR who had initially gone up toward the front to be close to get ready: I hv something --

no prob with your calling me up, but if I'm going to have to wait for a few more speakers, I need the time to record b/c of the transcript, that's all.

speaking as Chair of Heritage West Van

someone said something after I spoke that I wanted to comment on

first of all, I think the euphoria and the excitement of going forward with this has -- I don't want to stop that -- but the speaker after me brought up some concerns that I thought

Mayor: hold on, Ms Scholes, our parliamentarian here, can you explain what you just said?

SSch: if commenting on an aspect of the bylaws, and the PH is closed, Ccl is not permitted to receive any further input

Mayor: good point

CR: this is not really about -- when some said there were some problems

perfection is the enemy of the good, so I still think you all need to be congratulated for what you're doing

the only thing I'd say is if anything you decide, be careful that it doesn't set a precedent, that's all

Mayor: thanks for those wise words

CR: wise words, I hope

since a NSh Transp plan and you're talking about PkR and Sq N is going to develop [there] --

may I suggest in the same vein have a [WG] and include the Sq N in plans for PkR b/c important to know what they're doing and to coordinate that area.

Mayor: exactly what we're doing, Carolanne

CR: with the Sq N? I hadn't heard that.

[Councillor Gambioli entered the meeting at 7:03 p.m. ]

[CAO] provided an update relative to the oil spill that occurred in English Bay on April 8, including: as of today WV beaches have been declared clean and clear and safe for use; the transition from an incident command situation to a project management situation where any oil that is observed will be immediately reported to Emergency Management BC; staff will be conducting scans of the beaches over the next month; and that the ship from which the oil spill originated has left the harbour.

Hand it over to CAO re beaches.

CAO: all of the beaches have been declared clean; now in a proj mgmt situation; any oil reported will be cleaned; ship has now sailed out of the hbr; we're now in an observe mode...

Mayor: Cclr Booth then Sop

MB: move?

Sop: I have a question; in light of what we've seen in a 'minor' spill, is this going to be a pattern, allowing bunkering, freighters, ... totally unacceptable

Mayor: Ms Leemhuis?

CAO: I can't comment on MetroV's policy wrt bunkering but as for WV, CoV, and some others, we'll all be looking at the protocols and looking to improve them.

Sop: you took the lead on this, a good thing; v strong msg to headquarters....

CAO: not used to being told 'no'

MB: move

Mayor: oh, Cclr Cam

Cam: I'm concerned about the cost to WV, CoV,.... ship, surety of $200K

CAO?: $300K

Cam: massively inadequate...WV itemizing all the costs, time, weekend; sometimes not all ... want to make sure reimbursed, xxx

CAO: Itemizing it, ship responsible, not just for costs but those going forward as well; process to claim that as well as wrt the economic impact...

Mayor: so there will be a final report coming to Ccl. Perfect. Cclr Booth.

{YES!}

Mayor: hope we don’t have to use a whip

ML: it says &&&

excellent; looking back will avoid mistakes of last OCP when might we see that review?

beneficial for Ccl to partake of, learned a lot since 2004

hope we address second Qtr this year, or 3rd Qtr

SMik: probably ready to report in Fall

ML: your own line

SMik: xxx

Parks to Planning up??? needs to be done

Sop: some indication of the public process you’re going to use? using old tools that maybe don’t work any more

whole new attitude

SM: only way to move forward is with both old and new tools

during Dialogue we learned have to use a whole suite of tools

via computer, one on one, public mtgs ramping it up

sit down with communications branding

some might be concerned with a particular issue; and to consult with those as well as past WGs

Sop: 30 WGs, incredible recomms, much sits on the shelf not used

look back at all that valuable information there it sits

today look at where we’re going slow down and look this meaningful

SM: the structure we have of the OCP is mandated; high level

strategic policy level

I don’t believe many of those reports have sat on a shelf, many

sec stes; blocks; heritage register; more get them -- envmt; and on and on

we are using them today

MB: asked before but don’t see it in the report

where’s transportation? land use? traffic mgmt disservice if we don’t at least update

SM: knew you’d bring that up

we haven’t shone a light critical part of

Strategic Transp Plan three/four years ago; will be using that

transportation is part and parcel of land use

MB: think we hv to go even beyond the Strategic Transp Plan

already having xxx

current plan but also aspirational forward thing

second question, OCP 11 yrs out of date (in five years)

seems like an overwhelming task to take on

what about a rolling, have a schedule yearly annually, so not a huge black hole of resources

SM: second Q first how often does an OCP have to be updated?

housing needs, at least five years; doesn’t have to be comprehensive; cd be look at what needs to be updated

don’t have to look at the entire OCP for review

periodic policy review in response to something that emerges

on the first Q, I might defer to Mr Fung

RF: land use and transportation go together v v closely; during process will be opp for policy-setting debates

in CoV, through devt of Coal Hbr, that the add’l density wd be made without new roads and that has happened in that downtown core; this is the time to have those discussions

unnamed

jurisdiction, hwy corridor

news lately no appetite for a third crossing

. knowing movements up hwy, xxx and do it modally

having those discussions anyway

MB: we do a fair job of engaging ppl who are interested

there’s a group going to be around a lot longer through schools

xxx not always the same

Cam: how to think of the future

heard some say; let’s make sure nothing changes; end up making the decisions anyway

don’t have the answers

how do you get ppl to think beyond their immed &&&

SM: the OCP review is the perfect time to do that

creating fear and uncertainty

what we learned during the Cmnty Dialogue

we asked about their housing okay for me

what about five or ten years started to think about stairs, lawn

Andy K and Steve Nicholls said we need to change to stay the same

stay in own house but need to redefine; smaller house or two little houses sharing a garden

youth is paramount; not planning for ourselves, but for future

went to Cedardale and asked them what they liked about their

WVSS their own survey asked a Q I’d never think to ask

some of the most affluent are transient

Cam: change is the cost; most ppl here now cdn’t afford to buy in

Lower Cap etc shd have some idea of what’s happening NVs, FNs

&&& [8:02] lands sold by fed govt &&&

we’re not an island; need communication

this part about house size?

SM: this disc paper is at a higher level

siting, massing, and character of sgl-fam homes; trees, blvd, nbrliness

have a great idea for a discussion paper

there are some basic aspects to nbrhd character, not just sgl-fam, all aspects of nbrhd character

Cam: re 752 maybe make some changes

Clyde area xxx is separate; know there’s a proposal fits more with PkR; think makes more sense, holistically

SM: concentric; Towers, access, are connected; shine the light on Clyde; interrelated

Cam: diagram with circles &&& [8:05]

Cass: if a prop comes up for sale, owner wd know we’d be the first ppl to call for the bidding

SM: CAO

our OCP does speak to Upper Lands?

Cass: eg Masonic Hall or Sweeney bldg obvious cd have a cmnty use

call us and we can say yes or no

SM: policy stmts whatever purpose, wd be appropriate

but how actioned or implemented [8:06]

Sokol: in sub-area plans

might target certain props (MasonicHall/Sweeney]; maybe HBay plan

NG: we have revised motion from what we’ve been reading on the screen

the new recommendation ON SCREEN [8:07]

print rather small

notice that the Onni devt left out

SM: for clarity concentric circles abutting PkR

{he read out:}

THAT the proposed OCP review process, as outlined in the report from the Mgr of Cmnty Planning, dated Mar 23, 2015, be endorsed for implementation starting in 2015.

Mayor: what is in this motion not in your report?

SM: written some time ago; report has been revised

Mayor: I’m confused as to what I’m voting on

CAO: in addn to report, adding certain areas

want to be v clear: TWay corridor, xxx, 752,

Mayor: speak to your motion?

NG: think it’s wonderful

ML: don’t want to go down the same hole

if xxx ... I wd prefer to see it in the report we’ve been given as part of our package tonight

so no confusion in our or public’s mind what’s in

come to next mtg so clear not back of the cuff

CAO: we can certainly incorporate and bring to next ccl mtg

Sop: shd hv bn in the report; presented with the full thoughts before going forward

as ML, have to be crystal clear going fwd; don’t want to go through the same thing as before

Mayor: let’s stay focused

Sop: I’m focused

Cam: the OCP report in 24 pages speaks

this is a couple of addl details

all this is saying is that we’ll review this and those other areas; then chance to vote on in future

just says we’re going to review and that will have a review and go forward (for votes)

efficiency let’s just pass the report what’s so complicated, I just don’t see it

MB: this is probably one of the most initiatives taking for this term

xxx think it wd be worth it to &&&

document, over three years; it is our roadmap

know it’s extra work but guiding us over next three years xxx complete, comprehensive, and exhaustive

anything else, put it xxx now

Mayor: is there a signif amt of work staff bringing back with crystal clear motion

CAO: brought this b/c of some issues that came before Ccl

we may have to revise to a degree that wd require xxx work

We just added these few things

complete review have to see to make sure all areas; go all out

Mayor: staff recommendation? next mtg?

CAO: if full report, not next mtg

&&& incorporated these specifics; if need more specifics and detail

Mayor: Mr Mikicich

SM: xxx overall scope of the xxx not meant (?) to be an overall plan

nothing diff about doing TWay corridor plan and doing this

one of the other challenges of whole

is the staff and WG weighing in wanting other work/things?

my comfort level was to keep it at this level

we cd bring back a report involving the &&& .

Mayor: what’s your recomm?

SM: ask yourselves that!

{laughter}


take it as a compliment

this is a general direction and plan; this gives enough. for amendment

Mayor: xxx

ML: sorry, don’t agree; xxx not xxx

six mos from now I won’t see it; it’ll be Stephen’s report; xxx

Mayor: Cclr B will move an amendment

NG: can I make an amendment to my own motion?

?&&&

Sop: point of order I object to this wordsmithing

Mayor: let’s conduct in a civilized ...

NG: &&&

Sop: I have a point of order on the floor

Mayor: need your help, CAO

Sop: &&&

CAO: suggest staff bring a report to the next mtg; incorporate xxx

NG: xxx

Mayor: Ms Leemhuis has the floor

CAO: &&&

Sokol: deadline is tomorrow so Ccl won’t have ten days

NG: it is my motion

Mayor: theatre of the absurd; bring report next

NG: expressed where?

Mayor: xxx

CAO: xxx

Mayor: motion I prefer is to walk out of here and go to the Legion for a beer

MB: tabling ... do ... no debate on a tabling motion?

Cam: this is a xxx so I’ll agree to the tabling

the first person we have to look at is ourselves

I’m going to vote against; do his job

VOTE re tabling PASSED w/ Cam, Cass, NG opposed [8:25]


6. Additions to West Vancouver Community Heritage Register(File: 2585-03-04)

PowerPoint presentation to be provided.

Sop: put motion on the floor then discuss

SM: prepared for a presentation

Sop read out motion:

1. 1160 Nepal Place, 3956 Westridge, and 6222 St. George’s Ave be added to the WV Cmnty Heritage Register, pursuant to section 954 of the LGA; and

2. Staff report back to Ccl on the status of remaining properties that were previously nominated to the Register in May 2008, for possible listing on the Register.

Mayor: anyone want to ask Mr M a question?

Sop: in the interest of security, &&&; ... with all that effort, ppl can opt out at any time if they wish to?

SM: listing on register, no &&&

economically viable alternative if they wish

nothing about the register that requires an owner to do something

Sop: this initiative, 30 years from now

shd staff not being doing more to bring it into legal &&& ?

SM: certain things we can and cannot do; operate according to LGA ... 2007, xxx, ...

short list; confusion of what the Register is, so we chose to make them only voluntary when full support of owner

Ccl being required to pass a resoln

Ccl cd further incentivize by moving all recognized to the register

{thought bubble: yes, yes, pls do!}


second recomm report on the mechanics on that

Cass: to what extent does a house have to stay, have seen ?

SM: nat’l standards and guideline

preservation, rehabilitation, and restoration; levels of intervention

bldgs change over time; part of the heritage value can be some of the alterations over time; no reqmt have to stay

SOS, xxx, character-defining elements; protected

kind of as ...

Cass: incentive

SM: in 2009

land use incentives; accessing bldg code equivalences; eg the Toby House allow for a subdivision where not allowed

{and, as I said, as chair of the heritage incentives subcmte a few years ago, we presented a list of recomms.}
