The Council Agenda for October 24th, 2011 was too big for the usual evening slot so it was broken up into both an afternoon and evening session. The afternoon session was dominated by one topic: Snug Cove Village and Transportation Concept Plans. The objective, as set out by Mayor Turner, was to go through effectively two distinct views of the proposed plans and use the process of elimination to determine what would "stick" or be left on the table for the next Council to have as guidance. First, Architect James Tuer, led Council through design elements in the various plans to decide was was on the table and what was off. Once that was done then another pass was executed where Mr. Tuer led Council through the 4 plans for Snug Cove briefly detailing the benefits and challenges in each of the plans.
The end result of the decision making, albeit at a very high level, was to go with Plan A and Plan D for guidance in revitalizing Snug Cove. Plan A is near to status quo with little tweaks here & there and Plan D was in many ways the most bold with the most significant features being a transformation across the road from where the Library presently sits. The idea being that Council would be guided to use Plan A as a master template and borrow design and architectural ideas from plan B.
