Every week, Bramptonist rounds up the interesting items on upcoming city council and committee meetings, so you don’t have to page through huge (and, if we’re being honest, tedious) PDFs and to make it easier for you to be a well-informed resident.

All meetings are open to the public (aside from items which are specifically marked as closed). Due to council chamber renovations, meetings are mostly occurring in Boardroom WT-2C/D in the West Tower.


Environment Advisory Committee

June 12, 7:00 p.m.
Boardroom WT-2C/D, West Tower

The EAC is a citizen advisory committee that runs cycling events throughout the city, advises council and provides feedback on potential environmental projects.

Issues in Brief

There will be a presentation from Ryan Ness of the Toronto Region Conservation Authority on provincial watershed policies.

There will also be a discussion on the Grow Green Network Plan and discussion of the possibility of starting the Brampton Sustainability Institute as mentioned in the Brampton 2040 vision.

Council

June 13, 9:30 a.m.
Boardroom WT-2C/D, West Tower

Brampton City Council meetings are the final approval meeting for all matters pertaining to the city. Generally speaking, matters are considered finished after they are approved here, unless opened back up with a two-thirds majority vote.

Announcements

Brampton-based Warriors Wrestling Academy won at the Canada East Wrestling Festival in PEI.

Peel Manor Rebuild

A few years ago, the Region of Peel presented a plan to rebuild the aging long-term care facility at Peel Manor on Main Street North. There were some concerns raised by residents that were addressed by city and regional planners, and the plan was approved last year (page 46). There has been a change from the current format to a new “butterfly” model (four residential sections connected to a main hub) and the setback from Murray Street has decreased by 0.5 metres, though staff have raised no concerns and are recommending the new plan for approval.

FIFA 2018 and Alcohol Sales

The AGCO is extending province-wide restaurant liquor sales to 9:00 a.m. to accommodate the FIFA 2018 World Cup being in Russia, which is a seven-hour time difference (page 148). Restaurants don’t need to apply for a permit for this event, it is being done automatically, unless there are existing restrictions.
