BUSINESS ARISING FROM THE MINUTES OF DECEMBER 7, 2000
At the December 7, 2000 meeting the administrative report written by Kevin Van Vliet dated November 28, 2000 with respect to residential recycling, garbage and yard trimmings was discussed. A letter dated December 13, 2000 was forwarded to the Standing Committee on City Services and Budgets and Vancouver City Council voicing the concerns expressed by this Committee. Council did not respond to any of the recommendations set out in this Committee’s letter. Councilor Tim Louis responded by letter. He was interested in the idea of an annual recycling fee and a point of purchase fee.
GIBBY’S FIELD -1460 East 18th Avenue
At the December 7 meeting the Gibby’s Field group asked the Committee to support a moratorium on further residential development of the above noted property. A letter was sent to the Mayor and Councilors dated December 22, 2000 supporting a moratorium on the sale and/or development of Gibby’s Field.
On January 10, 2001, Mavis Dixon of the Gibby’s Field group heard from Bruce Maitland, the Manager for Housing and Properties for the City. He assured Ms. Dixon that there would be a moratorium on further residential development on Gibby’s Field until the community has had a chance to complete its visioning process. No deadline for the moratorium has been set but it is understood it is not infinite. The Gibby’s Field group has a lot of work to do but the moratorium at least allows them some time to find a workable solution.
