Thank You Ward 4
Thank you for RE ELECTING me again in Ward 4 - serving Glen Abbey, West Oak Trails, 407 West, Sixteen Hollow, Palermo & Palermo West.
I look forward to working with all of you as the voice of the community at Town Council, and building on the important issues / work that we have accomplished over the past 8 years:
- The Property Tax increase over the past 4 years has been less than CPI and the lowest in the GTA
- The NEW Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital is on time and on budget and will be ready to open in the fall of 2015
- Stricter Speeding Controls have been implemented in your Ward 4 and across The Town of Oakville to make it safer for all motorists and especially cyclists and pedestrians.
- Roger has and will continue to work hard to protect 100% of the Merton Lands from any form of development. Together the Liberal government and Oakville Council have saved over 2300 acres of environmental lands across Oakville, and protected an additional 124,000 acres of environmental lands across Halton in the enhanced Halton Natural System, including of over 400 hectares of environmentally sensitive lands including forests, creeks, wetlands and valley lands.
- We now have a Splash Pad & Playground at The West Oak Trails Community Park as well as New Baseball Diamonds and a Leash Free Dog run at The Palermo Park at Dundas & Postmaster
- Major Roads in your Ward have been realigned to enhance traffic calming and pedestrian safety. There are many new 3 and 4 way stop intersections and traffic signals with crossing clocks.
- Over 800 additional parking spaces have been created at the Oakville and Bronte GO STATIONS to support Ward 4 commuters
- We have secured a special needs medical facility namely the ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment & Development. ErinoakKids comes to Ward 4 in about 2 years.
