At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council passed on final reading their Reduced Speeding Bylaw. The bylaw will officially establish a speed limit of 50 kilometers an hour for vehicles on Provincial Trunk Highway 10A on the portion of the highway from where Highway 10 crosses Highway 10A at the turn off below Walmart to the junction of Green Street and Highway 10A. It had never been officially designated a 50 zone.
Council received an application for Municipal Funding for a Community Garden addition. The Community Group requested 15 hundred dollars for their project. The application notes the project is to build a beautiful and pleasing fence to highlight the community garden area and to define the space from the broader area of the Rotary Park. They explain Community Gardens are well known for providing space for neighbors to grow fresh healthy food close to home. But beyond improving food access community gardens provide the space for powerful neighborhood level social change adding when a group of people join together to organize, build and manage a community garden they bring an impressive array of benefits to their community. The request was referred to the Finance Committee.
