Notice of Public Meeting

Municipal Plan and Development Regulations
for 2017-2027
Town of Roddickton – Bide Arm

Community members are invited to a public meeting for a presentation and discussion concerning a new Municipal Plan and Development Regulations for the Town of Roddickton – Bide Arm, for 2017-2027. The Planning Area includes the entire Town of Roddickton – Bide Arm plus that part of the East Brook Pond Protected Public Water Supply Area lying outside the Town boundary. The First Clay Cove Pond Protected Public Water Supply Area is inside the Town boundary and thus is included.

The work carried out in 2010 for the Town’s Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) identified the need to update these documents. The documents for Roddickton pre-dated the amalgamation with Bide Arm and needed review in any event, and the former Town of Bide Arm did not have a Municipal Plan and Development Regulations and thus will be included in those now being proposed for the Planning Area.
The Town has retained a planning consultant who has carried out research on the opportunities and circumstances affecting development of the Town, and has prepared drafts of the new Municipal Plan and Development Regulations. These documents are available at the Town office for viewing and are posted on the Town Website (roddickton.bidearm.ca) under the blog section. They can also be sent by email as pdfs. The email address to request a pdf copy is townclerk@bellaliant.com.
Please review these documents and come with your questions and suggestions.
The meeting will be held at:

7:00 pm, Wednesday, 26 July, 2017, at the
Gerry Byrne Room in the Arena
15B Cloud Drive, Roddickton, NL

The office will closed on Monday, June 26 2017 in observance of Discovery Day.

Message from Norpen on regular waste collection.

• Curbside waste is collected year-round, once per week. For storm days and holidays the next possible collection day will be used. Changes to regular schedule will be announced @ norpenservices.ca and Norpen Facebook page (Norpen Waste) for all residents, and @ 709-454-3336 for residents of Subregions 1, 2, and 3.
• Waste must be in standard size garbage bags – ‘grocery bags’, ‘kitchen catchers’ and ‘large yard’ waste bags are not acceptable.
• Waste is to be at the curb (within 10 feet of the edge of pavement) by 8:00 a.m. on collection day.
• If waste bins are used for collection at the curb, they must be kept clean and tidy.
• Waste must be covered.
• Each bag must not exceed 35 pounds.
• Garbage bags must be tied before placing them at the curb.
• Broken glass, sharps, knives, and syringes must be clearly marked and packaged in a puncture-proof container. The marked container is to be placed at the curb separate from garbage bags.
• Containers of liquid, including paint will not be collected. Empty or dried out paint cans can be placed in a regular garbage bag with other household waste.
• Hazardous waste will not be collected; items, liquids or materials can be taken to the landfill site for disposal.
• Electronic waste such as televisions, computers, computer accessories, stereos, stereo components, etc. will not be taken during regular waste collection; these items will be collected during spring clean-up or can be taken to the landfill site for recycling.
• Ashes will not be collected.
• Cardboard must be put in tied up bags (standard garbage bags) or broken down and bundled, to measure no more than 2 feet by 2 feet by 1 foot.
