Study of Picton Master Servicing Plan begins


 

Prince Edward County is initiating the Picton Master Servicing Plan to determine future infrastructure requirements to support projected growth and planned development in the Picton/Bloomfield serviced area.

That includes water, wastewater, stormwater and transportation.

The MSP study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of Phase 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act.

Key findings and recommendations of the Picton MSP study will be considered and accounted for in other planning studies being undertaken in the County, including the Regional Water Supply Servicing Master Plan and the Class Environmental Assessment Studies for the Wellington Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants.

The County says public consultation is an integral component of Master Planning and there will be a Public Information Centre (PIC) at yet-to-be-determined date.

Once a date for the PIC is confirmed, the County will publish invitation notices in local newspapers and on the County’s website.

Habitat for Humanity opens applications for new duplex

More homes are coming to Belleville.

Prince Edward Hastings Habitat for Humanity has opened up applications for eligible families to receive housing in a duplex they’re building on Sidney Street, near the corner of Bell Boulevard.

Those interested in applying to live there when the home is finished can apply on Habitat’s website here.

The two-unit structure began construction in September of last year, and both units will feature four bedrooms across two storeys and a basement.

The land for the project was previously donated to Habitat for Humanity by the City of Belleville.

Prince Edward Hastings Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Hazzem Koudsi, speaking at a press conference at the Habitat for Humanity Restore on Bell Boulevard, said that they plan to build more duplexes where they can, instead of just single family homes.

“Typically in the past they have built single-family dwellings on single pieces of land, no matter how big the piece of land was. Recently, just prior to my arrival, they had completed two duplexes in Trenton along Sidney Street.  So the model was developed for us to continue with duplexes,” said Koudsi.

Habitat for Humanity is looking at building even denser home solutions in Belleville, and has plans to build over 60 units of condos on Dundas Street in Belleville at the former police station. Board of Directors Chair Kathryn Brown said that they’re still planning the structure and that they want to include different sizes of units and have green space still on the property.

The Children’s Safety Village, still on the former police station property, is planning to move to the site of the former Hillcrest Public School.

New RenoMark Website Live

The RenoMark website, renomark.ca, has gotten a new look. While CHBA leads the administration of the national RenoMark program, the RenoMark website remains under BILD GTA’s purview and they have been working hard at making the site more attractive to homeowners while maintaining its core function of providing valuable information and directing homeowners to hire RenoMark members.

New Logo Option

You’ll see on the website that there is now a version of the RenoMark logo that has the hammer/checkmark in a bright green, complimented by a bright green accent colour throughout the website. The previous black and white version of the logo is still actively used and may continue to be used by HBAs and members. In addition, you now have the option to use the green version of the logo if you choose.

All versions of the logo, as well as the updated Logo Terms of Usage document, can be found here. This link is also available at any time on the RenoMark Resources for HBAs webpage. Going forward, more of the resources in the asset library will include the green colour. 

As the RenoMark online verification system goes live HBA-by-HBA with your collaboration, members will be able to download the logo themselves, both versions. It may make more sense for you to hold off on distributing the new version of the logo to members until then, but if you wish to, you please feel free.

Verify your HBA’s information

With the site now live, we recommend you give it a look to see what’s new, and to check your HBA’s contact information to ensure accuracy. If you notice anything that needs to be changed, please email me (natasha.rombough@chba.ca).

Thank you, and if you have any questions, please let me know.
