Which led straight into:

Dealing with the General Committee report was speedy, considering it was a 6-1/2 minute meeting with everything passed on consent!


Harvey had a motion without notice, to help Tourism Barrie pay for a consultant about Sport Tourism at the Sadlon Arena. As noted by the Mayor, smaller items had been refused in the budget that would help more people in the City. Unfortunately, not everyone agreed, and the motion passed 6-5.


An incredible presentation about the proposed new Downtown Y!



Planning Committee


Public Meeting about a proposed condo development at 405 Essa Road


Minutes: https://barrie.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=M&ID=900490&GUID=02069C7D-B388-4F7D-9AC1-062530312742

Residents were NOT happy, seems like there's much to do before they bring this proposal back to Council.
