Update: The Sunday school portion of St Marks is currently coming down and interestingly enough a few artifacts have been discovered including a photo of Reverend Sutherland, founder of St. Mark’s Church.
We are now awaiting the staff report on community use and costs for St Marks that is to be presented to the General Issues Committee. This will be followed by a Public Meeting. City Staff will then present its recommendations for St Marks to the General Issues Committee and ultimatly to Council for its decision. The Association’s position has not changed since 1994 when the City purchased the property for much needed green space in the Durand. Councillor Farr will support the Durand and work to have this long standing issue resolved favourably for Duranders.
The DNA has asked Councillor Farr to follow up with the date of this meeting and the report which is to forwarded to the Durand Neighbourhood Association. The Association will then inform Duranders and the Community-at-large. Your support at these meetings will help to convince the Councillors to do the right thing for Duranders.
