  • Presentation by Charles Savoie, Director, Strategic Planning and Policing Support Services - Update on Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and the operational plans for the five new officers planned for 2023 - Statistics were shared with Council on how the CRPA Board will track the RCMP’s performance during the year and crime statistics for our regions. The new hires will focus on increasing community policing surrounding drugs, panhandling, downtown patrols, provide school liaisons and more. Upon hearing the presentation, Council reached a consensus vote and agreed to release the 2023 funds to the CRPA. View the presentation linked above and the video recording of the meeting for full details.



  • All departments shared their reports for February 2023 
  • Director Shea provided updates on the Byron Dobson arena, including supply chain issues that are stalling repairs. The heating system in the upper arena is still under repair (awaiting parts). The scoreboard in the lower arena is also out of service and awaiting parts to fix the issue. The department's search for alternative systems and equipment to rent has yet to find any viable options. Expediting repairs remains a top priority, within these constraints. 
  • 50th Anniversary Merchandise now available to the public! Due to high demand, the first clothing drop of adult t-shirts and sweaters is open for purchase until March 8. Based on feedback and interest in the 50th anniversary store, Town staff will plan future merchandise drops throughout 2023 - including but not limited to, mugs, hats, children's sizes, and new shirt styles. A portion of the proceeds from 50th merchandise sales will go to supporting Riverview P.R.O. Kids.


  • Proposed Changes to Building By-Law - passed a recommendation to adopt proposed changes to the Building By-law. New regulations in the provincial act require municipal by-laws to be in line with the act.
  • K. Brewer, Plan360 - Proposed Rezoning Buckingham Avenue - Kirk Brewer brought forward a proposed development of two, 70-unit apartment buildings with access off Buckingham Avenue. The proposed development would be erected on a wooded lot between Buckingham and Riverview High School. Council made a motion to move forward with the rezoning process, which will include a Planning Advisory Committee meeting, Public Hearings and additional readings of the by-law prior to reaching a decision on the project.
