I think that's isitt's next motion

 

Isitts next motion will be to share the unpaid money to Collins to the other members of council as they've had to increase their workload due to her leaving

It’s gotten so busy up in City Hall that one Together Victoria councillor is on vacation on another continent.

I would imagine the taxpayers of the CoV paid for them.

In June "A Better Victoria" page was launched on facebook and is also on twitter - and it appears to be ramping up to support a candidate in the by-election (my hunch would be Stephen Andrew), take a run in the byelection as a non-TV candidate.  I believe the positive messaging of the name is likely beneficial and will likely result in better reception of the message by the electorate, that change is needed in order to stop the trends that have been observed.

 

On another note - living near Clover Point, it is shocking how many people are now using Dallas Road parking to overnight in RV's.  I've also noticed an uptick in posts relating to vehicles being rummaged through in Fairfield in recent months (on the Fairfield Gonzales Community page).  What's the point of having bylaws if they are simply going to be ignored?

I noticed that as well. I drive over to the Mother-in-laws usually Fairfield to Dallas and there has to be at least 10-15 vans and campers permanently parked there now

Like a purpose made campground/RV facility where they pay a per diem or a private driveway where they are permitted to park?  I'd be happy with either or those somewheres.  The situation is a bit at odds.  This council will rail against on street parking for those who have the gall to use a vehicle to commute or to run errands - but at the same time, when private vehicles are used as make shift housing, it's "bring it on".  Here have an oceanfront public space to do so.

Stop saying campground! Somewhere C Brett is getting a Google alert and then buying a ferry ticket.

It would be a great place for a hot tub. Awesome views. Heat from the sewage plant would keep it toasty. Geothermal.

Clover point remains a pump station only.  But, no I was not jesting on the shower front, my understand is that they are outdoor showers that have been requested by some in the kite boarding community - from a recent neighborhood email:

 

Hello Everyone,

 

Along with the new toilets/washrooms at Clover Point, the city staff have now included showers in the design.  I know many people did not want the toilets at the Point, so just wondering about your thoughts on showers.

 

Also, the new location for the toilets at the Point is not down the hill partially hidden, they have moved it up the hill towards to road and viewing platform. 

 

If you have any comments, please let me know.  Depending on the response, we may have to start a letter writing campaign to mayor and council, city staff and CRD and CRD Sewage Treatment.

From a briefing note on the Current Construction activities and next steps:

 

The Clover Point Pump Station is being upgraded and expanded. The current pump station was
built in the 1970s and pumped wastewater directly into the ocean. The expanded underground
pump station will pump wastewater to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant for
tertiary treatment and provide bypass pumping to the existing outfall during storm events. The
scope of work includes several public realm improvements, including public washrooms,
pedestrian and bicycle paths, bicycle facilities, a public plaza, street furniture and road intersection
improvements. Construction work started in early 2018 and is expected to be complete in July
2020. The main structural components of the pump station are nearing completion and the large
pumps have been installed. Remaining construction activities include connecting the Clover
Forcemain to the pump station, installing a portion of the Trent Forcemain along the Dallas Road
Waterfront Trail and construction of the public amenities. Construction of the washroom facility
is also underway and is expected to be complete by July 2020. During detailed design
development an outdoor rinse station was incorporated in the washroom facility. The rinse station
provides kite surfers, swimmers, people and pets playing at the beach a place to rinse off sand
and saltwater. The washroom facility and the outdoor rinse station will be open to the public
during daylight hours.
