On behalf of Clyde River Council, I would like to extend wishes for a safe and successful 2020. In 2019, the completion of the bypass brought changes to the landscape and traffic flow in the community. The Clyde River History Lectures, Canada Day celebration, Seniors’ Lunch and Learn series and Christmas Party brought a lot of people to the Community Centre, and we invite you, your family and friends to attend the 2020 versions of these events.

In early March, we will welcome your input at a public meeting where the budget for the 2020–21 fiscal year will be presented and updates on Clyde River’s progress in conforming to the new Municipal Government Act will be available. Early in 2020, Council will be starting to work on two major requirements of the Act: an Emergency Management Program and a Land Use Plan.

We remind you that Council meetings are open to the public. If an individual or group wishes to address Council they can do so after contacting the Administrator (administrator@clyderiverpei.com) in advance of the meeting to be added to the agenda. To view the schedule for upcoming council meetings that are open to residents to attend, please visit the Council page here.

Council continues to be appreciative of the hard work done on Council’s and the community’s behalf by CAO Fred Beer and website manager Vivian Beer.

Best wishes for 2020 from your Community Council: Heather Fleming, Darlene Kneabone, Ruth Nelson, Julia Purcell, Steven Shoemaker and Carolyn Wood and Hilda Colodey.
