DRIC Project - Windsor Essex Parkway

The DRIC project (Detroit River International Committee) has been busy during the last 4 years aquiring the needed properties along the projected new highway and border crossing route. To date they have successfully negotiated with 93 of the 139 projected property owners. I believe that all 93 property owners have been very happy with their compensation packages. This was one of my concerns 4 years ago in that everyone would be treated fairly in compensation and I now feel confident that all will be compensated adequately. I don't know how many property owners have relocated in LaSalle but I encourage all of them to do so.

2010 LaSalle Election

This election will consist of a few changes. First of all you will be able to vote by mail. Everyone will receive their ballot in the mail in late September or early October. You will have time to decide your selections and submit also by prepaid mail. You can also drop it off at the Town Hall on Election Day. Make sure you mail early to allow the mail system to return your ballot on time.

All positions have more than 1 individual running so there will be no acclamation of any positions. This makes for a healthier election as people should have a choice and yes everone should vote.

Election will take place on October 25th, 2010
For a list of Candidates go to the town website at @ http://town.lasalle.on.ca

Laurier Parkway Construction

If you get the opportunity take a ride and get a feeling and a view of where the new Laurier Parkway road will intersect Disputed Road and Huron Line and come out onto Howard Ave. It will be a great connection for anyone needing to get to the 401 for travelling. It will be a great alternative for just getting to work for some and also simplify directions for out of town people to find LaSalle.

Colonel Bishop Park Begins

LaSalle has began building the much anticipated Colonel Bishop Park on the old site of the former school of the same name. The playground has been installed already as one of the first items. Path ways and picnic areas will follow. There will be some other sorts of amenities to follow and a number of trees will complete the park setting . I know many of you have been waiting for this park to be completed for some time. I hope it meets everyone's expectations.
