Some Updates

Emergency Planning
Are you prepared for an emergency?
Strathcona County is inviting residents to attend the "Get prepared, Strathcona" event on Sunday, May 15 to learn about emergency preparedness. Hope to see you there.
 news release:          

Cuff Report Results in New Governance Policies
Months of work by Councillors Bonnie Riddell and Peter Wlodarczak were reviewed and accepted by Council. I urge residents to read and ask questions on these policies: the Council Code of Conduct, Organizational Roles and Responsibilities, and Organizational Success Discussions
available on the Strathcona County website.

Traffic Feedback Signs
You remember the Driver feedback signs that notify you of your speed in residential areas - new last year? You can expect to see one in each ward sometime the first two weeks of May.  The first locations will be:
Ward 1: Main Blvd
Ward 2: Jim Common Dr
Ward 3: Estates of Sherwood
Ward 4: Clarkdale Dr
Ward 8: Regency Dr West of Ridgemont
The Office of Traffic Safety, Transportation Engineering, Transportation and the RCMP are working together to develop a list for more locations in each of the urban wards. 
Engineering and Enviornmental Planning will be bringing forward a report to Council very soon regarding the results  of the pilot project that took place in 2010. I will be reporting back to you on that as soon as it comes to Council.
As always, I welcome your calls and comments - and oh yes - the next Ward 2 Open House of May 17th is very different!!! Open to all - this session will be a workshop on social media!! Book the date and watch this Friday's Sherwood News (my column) for all the details!
