Garage Sale Weekend sneaking up on us!

This is a call out to all Area Residents to get sorting thru those piles and get ready for the upcoming Garage Sale weekend May 11th!

The Community Assoc will put up an avertising sign on 33rd and Ave P, will put in a generic ad in the Star Phoenix, and will post on Kijiji the week of the sale.

All residents are encouraged to put up Poster Signs in those ‘popular’ locations, use balloons at the front of your property to draw attention, and to also place your address on Kijiji. You may also choose to place a small add in the Star Phoenix.

There will be a community BBQ at the Co-op on 33rd on May 11th to support the Mayfair School Grade 8′s.

Some tips for a successful Garage Sale:

* price everything

* make sure items are clean and in working order (have batteries/plug ins available so items can be viewed running if requested)

*place larger or colorful items at the front of your property to draw attention to your sale

*balloons – they always work!

*have a good amount of change/coins prepared prior to the start of your sale

*use bars to hang any clothing, costumes, ect (broom handle between 2 ladders, or even between 2 tables will work

*set up early

We look forward to a great and successful weekend!

Diverter at 38th St & Ave C – last chance to be heard

Request to Speak Forms can be requested from the City Clerk, completed, and handed back to the City Clerk, prior to the meeting at 11:30 a.m., Tues. March 12, 2013.  The completed forms should probably be back in the hands of the City Clerk no later than 11:15 a.m. if anyone would like to speak to the committee.

This Committee will be Recommending the Permanent Placement of this Diverter to the City Council, at the City Council Meeting on Monday, March 18, 2013.

These two meetings of March 12th and March 18th, are the last opportunity for Mayfair Residents to have their voices heard regarding this Diverter being permanently placed at 38th Street & Ave C N.

Past letters and Petitions to Planning and Operations will not have the same impact as Mayfair Residents speaking in front of the Committee on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 and at the City Council Meeting on Mach 18, 2013.

Letters with your view on this matter, can still be submitted to City Clerk’s Office to appear before the City council at the March 18th meeting, prior to Tuesday, March 12, 2013.

Mayfair Residents have previously voiced their opinions and suggestions of other options, through written letters, Questionnaires, Numerous Telephone Calls, Petitions, Letters to the Star Phoenix, Verbal complaints to City Traffic, Planning & Operations, Mayor’s Office, and during Local Area Plan meetings, whereby “Looking Forward” –  the Diverter is not what the majority of Mayfair residents envision for their neighborhood.”   They want this Diverter Removed, and, as has been promised on numerous occassions by Councillor Darren Hill, these types of traffic concerns will be further addressed through the Local Area Plan process.


Registration for Indoor Programs will be held Tuesday Jan 8th at St. Edward School 1002 Ave P North from 6:30 to 8:30pm.

Programs running will be:

Sports ABC(3-5)  Th 6:15-7:00  Henry Kelsey Gym $10

Crafts(3-9)            Th 6:15 – 7:00 or 7:15 – 8:00 (2 sessions) Henry Kelsey Library $10

The purpose of the meeting is to launch the Mayfair & Kelsey-Woodlawn Local Area Plan (LAP).  We will be establishing a committee of local stakeholders to represent the neighbourhood at a series of meetings in 2013, where the LAP will be developed.  This plan provides an opportunity for residents, business owners, property owners, local groups and other stakeholders to have direct input into determining the future of their community.  Once completed, an LAP sets out a vision, goals, and a long-term plan that will guide growth and development of the area.  Subjects covered during the LAP process often include: land use, parks, municipal services, transportation, infrastructure, arts/culture/heritage, and neighbourhood safety.
