This year, two roads will be prioritized: Ragged Chute from the highway to Caldwell, and the remaining section of Aylmer Road. Signs will be purchased from the MRC warning of the dangers of transporting invasive aquatic species when watercraft has not been properly washed.
Councillor Graham identified advantages of a portable roadside sign indicating vehicle speed and council will explore purchasing one. Councillor Drummond explained the need for a bylaw to set a maximum time limit for replanting trees in areas that have been clear-cut, suggesting six months. He recommended that Bristol pass its own bylaw while encouraging the MRC to adopt similar
measures. The Planning Committee will draft a by-law.
Council agreed to accept a request for a specific project from a farm owner who wishes to add “glamping” (luxury camping) as part of their agro-tourism offering. The cost of an application is $1,500 and the building inspector will determine the requirements, e.g. septic.
Mayor Brent Orr announced that information sessions on the recently completed cadastral reform will be held May 9 and 10 from noon to 8 p.m.
