09Dear HIRA Member,
Approximately thirty-five (35) Howe Islanders attended the Open House on July 29. The ‘Open House’ turned into a full-on meeting that was facilitated by Glenn Tunnock, the Township planner. The Mayor and all Councillors were in attendance. Howe Islanders raised their concerns with the Draft Amendment and following the meeting, Mr. Tunnock asked HIRA to respond in time for the Public Meeting on Wolfe Island on August 5.
HIRA had three (3) board members attend the Wolfe Island meeting along with two (2) members and again, Howe Islanders voiced their opinions. It’s of interest to note that unfortunately, the turn-out by Wolfe Islanders wasn’t strong with only three (3) were in attendance…
