We had great success on our telephone town hall for the Community Wellbeing Initiative.
If you missed that one, we have another coming on the proposed Public Nuisance By-law.
This new by-law will provide by-law officers and police with tools to address minor, unwanted behaviour or activities on City-owned property and, in certain limited cases, private land, without laying criminal charges.
Of significance, the draft by-law provides tools to address:
- Activities that endanger the public using City facilities
- Activities that damage City facilities or land, including protests, rallies, or camping
- Parties on private property that may affect public safety
Council has not yet weighed in on the proposed Public Nuisance By-law. We have put it directly out for public input. So let’s hear what you have to say.
The details are available on guelph.ca here: http://www.guelph.ca/cityhall.cfm?subCatID=2396&smocid=2964
