1. Public Input

Ron Curties, 1901 – 200 Newport Drive, Port Moody, officially invited Council, staff and members of the public to participate in the 2007 Penguin Plunge on January 1st at  Rocky Point Park.

Wendy Swalwell, 2129 Clarke Street, Port Moody, questioned the timing of Spectra’s negotiations to sell the Boathouse and issuance of the development permit for the Boathouse Restaurant. She spoke regarding her opinion that the restaurant has had a negative impact on Rocky Point Park users and boaters. She commended the Boat Trailer Parking Working Group for their work to maximize boat trailer parking at Rocky Point Park.

Ann Hulbert, 1056 Ioco Road, Port Moody, thanked staff for adding lights to the Christmas trees in the Galleria and asked how much had been spent to date on the recreation centre expansion.

Hazel Mason, 2918 St. George Street, Port Moody, suggested the city did not comply with the statutory notification requirements for the September 14, 2004 Public Hearing on the Zoning Bylaw text amendment to permit a potential restaurant in Rocky Point Park and that there was not proper public consultation or a proper business plan and benefit analysis undertaken relative to permitting a restaurant at Rocky Point Park.
