Committee created to review applications and disburse Mayor’s golf tournament funds

Council approved the creation of a Mayor’s Golf Classic Funds Application Review and Disbursement Committee as an advisory committee of Council. The committee will be delegated the authority to disburse funds raised by the Aurora Mayor’s Charity Golf Classic and a dedicated reserve will be created to hold all unallocated net proceeds generated from the event.

Council votes to keep stop sign and stop line at Corbett Crescent and Cossar Drive

Aurora Town Council voted to keep the existing stop sign and stop line at Corbett Crescent and Cossar Drive and add a yellow centre line on Cossar Drive, extending 40 metres east of the intersection. These measures are intended to improve pedestrian safety and reduce speeding and corner cutting in the area.

Staff to report back on traffic calming strategies for Centre Street.

Council approved a motion directing staff to report back on additional mitigation strategies for traffic calming on Centre Street, north of Wellington Street and east of Yonge Street. Existing measures are in place, however, drivers continue to disregard the rules and enforcement has not been an effective deterrent to date.

Staff to review Town’s Noise Bylaw

Aurora Town Council approved a motion directing staff to follow what is happening in the City of Toronto with regards to upcoming changes to their noise bylaw, and begin the process of a comprehensive review of Aurora’s existing Noise Bylaw.
