Blog Watching: Week ending November 29, 2020

It having been a week which hosted a City Council session, a large portion of the most read notes of the last seven days explored themes from the Monday session. 

Among the items that vaulted to our list of five were a look at the plans for the waterfront and the City's proposed plans for leasing out space in the historic CN Rail station.

The larger vision related to community planning also made for the current of the Council session and out thoughts on the path ahead for that found a large audience over the last seven days.

Council's work towards rezoning land on 11th Avenue East for a proposed housing development and their vow to clean up the downtown area also generated much interest this week.

And the development of a website to share information on the proposed Port Edward LNG Terminal  development process also was a key item of interest this, with the readership returns making it the top item of the week.

Port Edward LNG launches website to inform area residents of Small scale terminal plans  --  A project first mentioned by Port Edward Council last month began its information sharing program, with Port Edward LNG creating a website to offer a glimpse into their plans for a Small Scale LNG terminal.  (posted  November 24, 2020)
