If you live in the area I'd suggest you get to this meeting so it has some balance. Riders live in the area as well and we don't want this meeting over run by those who oppose access to the trails on Fromme.
If you have friends who live in the area give them a ring and let them know about this meeting.
This is a reminder that the Mount Fromme Residents Association (MFRA) will be holding our Annual General Meeting this Thursday, November 27th at 7:30pm in the Auditorium at Upper Lynn Elementary School. We ask that all members please attend.
CALL FOR BOARD MEMBERS
I would like to take this opportunity to invite our members to become more involved in the residents association by becoming board members. The board of the MFRA is a small, friendly group of people dedicated to the improvement of our community. We meet on the first Thursday of each month.
Erica Geddes from the District of North Vancouver Traffic department and Susan Rogers from the District Parks department will be presenting the District plans for a long-term solution to the traffic and parking issues that have effected residents as a result of the recreational use of the trails on Mount Fromme. The District plans involve, in part, parking lots at the top of Mountain Highway and at in the area of Braemar [HTML_REMOVED] Dempsey.
Additional AGM business will be covered following the presentation, including a vote on whether to formally support the District plans outlined in the presentation, the election of a new Board of Directors, and a vote on whether to expand the MFRA mandate. A full listing of the meeting agenda has been included below.
MFRA membership renewals will be available at the door, the price remains $5 per household per year.
Thank-you for your continued involvement in your local residents' association. We look forward to seeing you on November 27th.
On behalf of the Board,
The agenda for the AGM is as follows:
Call the MFRA Annual General Meeting to Order
Introduce the current MFRA Board
Presentation by Erica Geddes of DNV Transportation (confirmed) and Susan Rogers of DNV Parks (unconfirmed) on the District plan for improving access to Mount Fromme and reducing the adverse effects parking and traffic have had on the surrounding community. These plans include a parking lot at the top of Mountain Hwy, another on the north side of Braemar at Princess, and, after community consultation, a scaling back of the Resident Parking Only (RPO) area in Upper Lynn Valley.
Vote to formally support the District plans for parking and traffic associated with Mount Fromme access.
Vote to set the membership dues for 2009. Membership dues are currently $5 per household per year.
Vote on whether to consider expanding the mandate of the MFRA. The current MFRA mandate is restricted to issues associated with the traffic, parking, and neighbourhood impact related to the recreational use of Mount Fromme and ensuring that the recreational use of Mount Fromme is managed in an environmentally sound manner.
Elect a new Board of Directors.
Adjourn the meeting.
