HIGHWAY CROSSWALK IMPROVEMENTS UPDATE

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has committed to help improve Highway 3B Crosswalk safety in the Village in 2016.

This includes changing out the existing signs at three of the four cross walk locations, repainting the zebra crosswalks this spring and uprating some existing highway corridor lighting to LED’s for better overall visibility along the highway corridor.

The Village will also be upgrading the remaining highway corridor lights to LED’s to ensure consistent lighting is present in this section of the Village. As part of the program, the Ministry has requested that the Village consider removing the 6th Street crossing. The Village feels that this crossing may be redundant and thus, has given detailed consideration to this proposal.

Anyone who would like additional information on this is asked to contact the Village Office.


2016 BUDGET and 2016-2020 FINANCIAL PLAN PREPARATIONS

Council and Staff have been working on the budget for 2016 and the Five-Year Financial Plan for 2016-2020. This is an extensive process with substantial consideration by Council members on upcoming priorities. On May 2, 2016 at 6:30 pm a public consultation meeting will be held in Council Chambers. This is a fantastic opportunity to find out the path Council has set for the next five years.


DEBIT MACHINE INSTALLATION

Good news! The Village recently installed a new Interac machine at the Office to allow residents to complete a wider range of financial transaction options for Village services in a more convenient way.

Please note that at this time, our set up only allows for debit transactions (bank cards) and not for credit cards.


MONTROSE'S 60th ANNIVERSARY IN 2016

Montrose Recreation is planning a bigger and expanded Montrose Family Fun Day Event next year! We want to make this anniversary a big one and have slightly increased the budget - and we are trying to get as many people involved as we can! As these events depend on volunteers to make them successful, anyone that wants to help can get information from the Village Office.

Also, if you know of anyone that used to live in Montrose, go to school here, or grew up here - please let them know about this event and invite them home…a home coming…so to speak. The main event will be on Saturday June 11, with other events tentatively happening on both Thursday (June 9) and Friday (June 10) nights.

Let's make the 60th year the best one yet!


Council recently adopted the Village's new Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) - Imagine Montrose, Creating the Future.

The ICSP is the vision, plan and process to continue our community's success over the next twenty years, is a way to position us to achieve sustainability in the longer-term and is the highest level guiding document for our community - with a practical decision-making framework that can be applied to all levels of decisions and used to guide all types of other plans, policies and programs.
