A resolution was approved to amend Schedule A of the Town’s Grants and Donations Bylaw, Bylaw #38. The amendment sees the addition of an Ecole Francois Buote Graduation Prize in the amount of $300 to be provided annually.

Resolution Deferred

After discussion, a resolution to revise the Foxwoods Subdivision Development Scheme for Phase 2 was deferred to a future council meeting. The application revises Phase 2 of the previously approved development scheme and creates eight single dwelling lots as a Sustainable Subdivision, an increase of one lot at the end of Windsor Drive to six total and two lots on Cardiff Lane.

Greener Properties Inc. Street Names

Four street names were approved in the new Greener Properties Inc. subdivision. The Town’s Heritage Committee proposed:
