Many thanks to Paul Szabo, his help was truly needed!  His effort got us the next meeting Feb. 4, and he has help us significntaly in the mailing for the next 2 meetings.
His Jan. 12-04, letter.
Our Jan. Newsletter.

Give him a call!  See what you can do to help him as he does need your help to.  It would be a shame to lose such an advocate but that could very well happen in the near future.  Mr. Szabo is being challenged to be the Liberal (Federal), candidate for Mississauga South in the next election.  The challenge is a serious one and I strongly recommend you to consider helping someone who is helping us in our time of need.

     The local Liberal (Federal), Association will be having a nomination meeting sometime in the next few weeks.  If you would like to have a vote as to who would be the Liberal candidate, you should join quickly, so you can vote at the nomination meeting.  Mr. Szabo's office number is (905) 822-2111 and let them know how you heard of this.

    Some may say I am being partisan but I have always tried to return the favor of those who have helped us, as best I reasonable can.  Remember, this is not about how you vote in a public election but the QUALITY of the candidates in it.

Re:     Development on East Side of Northmount Ave.

Dear Homeowner,

As you may know, there is a proposed development of 5 detached and 30 townhouses on the east side of Northmount Ave. near the Cawthra Bush. I have been contacted by a number of area residents who have concerns
about the development and who asked me to look into the situation.

On reviewing the matter, I was concerned to learn that the area residents did not have access to the final development proposal until the day on which they were asked to provide input to the Planning and Development Committee of the City of Mississauga. Regardless of the merits of the proposal, residents should have had all the information they would need to make informed representations.

On the reverse of this letter, you will find a letter I provided to the members of the Committee when I appeared before them on January 12, 2004. In my presentation, I asked that the meeting be deferred until the residents and
their representatives had the required information. Mayor McCallion was at the meeting and explained why consideration of the development would not be deferred. She advised that the area Councillor would have a public meeting in advance of the OMB Hearing scheduled for Tuesday February 10, 2004 at City Hall Committee Room A.

Last week I called Councillor Corbasson's office and was advised that the residents' meeting was to be held on Wednesday February 4, 2004 at 7pm at the Cawthra Seniors' Centre. However, as of today, it appears that area
residents have not yet been notified. I continue to be concerned about the process and the lack of timely notice of meetings. Although I am supposed to be in Ottawa commencing on February 2 nd when Parliament resumes, I intend to be at both meetings to do what I can to ensure that the resident's concerns are heard and addressed.

To assist the Cawthra Ratepayers' and Residents' Association, I have also enclosed a copy of a communication from them which I hope will answer any other questions you may have.
