4.4 Coronation Park Neighbourhood Plan
On-Table: Item for Consideration from Councillor Lahti, dated June 2, 2015
It has come to Council's attention that a private developer is planning to initiate a community planning discussion with a portion of the residents in the Coronation Park area, without involving the City and
all residents of the area.
Discussion ensued regarding the possibility of Council initiating its neighbourhood planning process for Coronation Park sooner than planned. It was noted that accelerating the Coronation Park Neighbourhood Planning schedule would result in delaying the Moody Centre Neighbourhood Plan process. It was also noted that funding has already been set aside for this public consultation process in the Council Strategic Priorities Reserve.
Moved and CARRIED
THAT the City commence the Coronation Park Neighbourhood planning process with a public consultation and town hall meeting on June 18, 2015, followed by a visioning exercise hosted by the Land Use Committee on July 7, 2015;
AND THAT, following these meetings, staff report back to Council with a proposed plan and timeline for further consultation and completion of the Coronation Park Neighbourhood Plan.

4.5 Role of Committee Chairs
Councillor Lahti reminded Council that the role of the Committee Chair is to serve as a liaison between the committee and Council, and that the Chair should not attempt to influence the decision making process to further personal agendas. It was noted that input from the various civic committee members aids Council in making decisions, and that committee members should feel free to provide input and express ideas.
