New constitution in effect

After much planning, proposed changes to the Cadboro Bay Residents Association constitution and bylaws have been approved.

The changes were made official at a special general meeting Feb. 15 and will be in place for the association’s Annual General Meeting in May. Revisions to the constitution include a decision to have 12 directors serve on the board, rather than eight directors and four executive officers.

Electing a full slate of directors at the AGM is intended to save time and avoid confusion, said residents’ association president Barbara Raponi.

UVic seeks feedback on parkade project

The University of Victoria will host three open houses to gather “meaningful” public input on a proposed sports facility and parkade.

The public input process will provide neighbours an opportunity to air concerns about the project and related traffic management issues.

New design options for the parking garage will also be presented.

Once the university gathers more feedback, a revised design for the parkade will be presented at open houses planned for May.

The first meetings are set for March 8 (Lambrick Park secondary, 4139 Torquay Dr., 5 to 8 p.m.), March 10 (St. Aidan’s United Church, 3703 St. Aidan’s St., noon to 3 p.m.) and March 14 (Queenswood, 2492 Arbutus Rd., 4 to 8 p.m.).

Feedback will also be collected online at

Other news

Also at the special general meeting, the Saanich Parks Department announced that it will be re-engaging the community on the proposed redevelopment of Gyro Park.

The residents association has formed a committee dedicated to working with the Saanich parks department.

Also on the radar in Cadboro Bay: Sinclair Road upgrades.

While the funding has yet to be approved by council, details of the proposal include the construction of bike lanes and sidewalks in both directions from Finnerty to Cadboro Bay roads.

If approved, the work would take place through 2013.
