President’s Message – September 2018

Good day everyone, a group of concerned citizens from the Cedarbrae Community along Southland Drive had a meeting with Jeromy Farkas and the engineering team responsible for the sound attenuation portion of the new connector to 90th avenue. SW. The concern is safety, road noise and property value. The group has a petition in place with over 900 names of residents in Oakridge and Cedarbrae to install a noise barrier wall along this portion of Southland Drive. The current sound attenuation study produced by the engineering group has results indicating no need for a sound barrier.  

Martin, Kathy, Ron and I have started the CCG and CFEP grant application process for the next round of projects for the Centre.
