c.                   Prohibit new Body Rub Parlours from locating within 1,000 metres of another Body Rub Parlour or Adult Entertainment Parlour; and 1,000 metres from schools, places of worship, daycares, public libraries, community centres, public parks or residential zones, as amended by the following recommendations:

 

 

2.         Whereas Licensing By-law 2002-189 Amendments – Limiting numbers and locations of Body Rub Parlours seeks to restrict the location of new Body Rub Parlours within 500 metres of schools, places of worship, daycares, public libraries, community centres, public parks or residential zones;

7.         WHEREAS staff is proposing amendments to the Body Rub Parlour licensing schedule to limit the number and locations of Body Rub Parlours and the report proposes to recognize Body Rub Parlour locations that are currently licensed;

 

AND WHEREAS the locations were not included in the report due to a conflict with the licensing renewal period for Body Rub Parlour licenses making it impossible to provide the list of locations before the report was finalized;

WHEREAS the entire Tallwood Woods is in City ownership;

MOTION

 

Moved by Councillor D. Deans

Seconded by Councillor M. Bellemare

 

WHEREAS the City has undertaken a comprehensive study to identify significant natural features that exist within the urban boundaries as required by Council;

 

AND WHEREAS priority natural areas for protection have been identified for securement based on their environmental value;

 

AND WHEREAS the cost to purchase these locally significant natural features in the urban area is significant as it is based on fair market value;

WHEREAS support for community service and public access to community facilities and recreation spaces was a hallmark of Bob's 26 years of public service - a focus on community as contemplated in this proposed renaming can be a lasting legacy;

 Orléans

Complexe récréatif Bob MacQuarrie

AND WHEREAS the Orléans title is a directional indicator and should remain in the name;

THERERFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED: that $20 000 be allocated from the City wide reserves to pay for the signage at the Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex,
