9.1 Adult Education Parking:

Mrs. Curiale drew the Council’s attention to ongoing parking concerns at the Adult Education Center noting that resolutions from the Laurenval School Board on the issue had not been forwarded to the Provisional Council. She went on to present the following resolutions:

RESOLUTION #1:

WHEREAS the existing parking area at Chomedey High decreases in size with increased accumulation of snow in the winter months;

WHEREAS existing snow removal contracts do not cover the removal of accumulated snow from the perimeter of this lot;

WHEREAS the lack of such snow removal reduces the number of parking spaces available to accommodate both the youth and adult education students and staff;

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED THAT the tendered contract include the provision for the removal of snow from the Chomedey parking lot.

 

RESOLUTION #2:

WHEREAS there is presently a shortage of parking space at Chomedey High to accommodate vehicles belonging to adult and youth sector staff and students;

WHEREAS Adult Education is projecting a student population increase in 1998-99 and beyond by increasing its program offerings;

WHEREAS alternative parking on streets surrounding the present Chomedey facility is restricted;

WHEREAS the current parking lot at Chomedey will be inadequate to cope with the increased demand;

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED THAT the eastern parking lot be extended to accommodate one hundred (100) additional parking spaces.

 

The Chairman asked that these resolutions be forwarded to the Material Resources Committee for further study.
