6.1 Appointment to community care committee - Verbal report, Mayor Trasolini
 
 
 
6.2 Albert Street Sidewalk - Report director of Engineering, Parks and Operations
 
Moved, seconded and CARRIED

THAT the sidewalk on the east side of Albert Street between Hope Street and the Port Moody Senior Secondary School property line be installed.

This was in response to a request from the school and PAC group that the city install a sidewalk on the East side of Albert Street between the school and Hope Street.  This request had come before the Traffic Safety Committee, where it was felt that a crosswalk to move the pedestrians across Albert to the west side would have been appropriate - monitoring the area shows that there is little adherence to using designed areas by pedestrians or motorists as students are picked up and dropped off from school.  Partial funding for the sidewalk is being provided by ICBC and the work will be done in conjunction with some infrastructure (water/sewar) work being scheduled in this block as well, to reduce costs.
 
6.3 2006 Council Strategic Plan - Verbal Report, Manager of Economic and Strategic Development
 
Moved, seconded and CARRIED

THAT the 2006 Council Strategic Plan be adopted;

AND THAT the Plan be disseminated widely to the general public and Port Moody staff, including a public presentation of the Plan at the June 13th Regular Council meeting.

The council strategic plan documents the underlying goals of council for the current term. This document was developed as a result of many meetings of council and city management staff, and provides direction to staff, and the community, to the priorities of council.
 
 
6.4 Chip Kerr Park - Verbal Report, Director of Community Services
 

Moved, seconded and CARRIED

THAT in consideration of the unique Port Moody recipient of the Victoria Cross medal, that the renaming of Century Park be amended to be Chip Kerr, VC Park.

This is an amendment to the name for the park encompassing existing Century Park and the new dedication at the corner of Jane and Hugh Streets.  Previously council approved Chip Kerr Park, but it was felt important that the VC be included in the name of the park to properly honour John Chipman Kerr and his service to our country.
 
6.5 2006 Emergency Planning Grant, UBCM - Report deputy Emergency Co-Ordinator
 
Moved, seconded and CARRIED

THAT staff be authorized to apply to the Union of BC Municipalities and Provincial Emergency Program for the 2006 Emergency Planning Program grant.

This is authorizaiton for staff to apply for the UBCM grant.

THAT staff reiterate that the city will not be enforcing the colour scheme of the Land Use Contract.

Council directed that staff provide notice to residents of San Remo Drive of Councilís decision to continue with the process of seeking consensus of the residents to amend the Land Use Contract governing their area.
