Tuesday the 16th: Urbanist event rundown

Thanks to a few snow delays, there's a wealth of things going on for city-minded people in St. John's on Tuesday the 16th. Here's a rundown:

At 5:30 PM Happy City is hosting our first iteration of what will be a monthly Happy City Hour - an informal gathering of people interested in the city and its future. No agendas or formal structure, just a chance to chat. This month's Happy City Hour will be at the venerable Georgetown Pub on Hayward Avenue - we'll be moving to a different neighbourhood spot each month.

At 7 PM, Councilor Dave Lane is hosting a meet-your-councilor Q&A session at Common Ground at Harvey Road, partly facilitated by Happy City's Josh Smee.

Also at 7 PM, the folks at the Georgestown Neighbourhood Association are hosting " Celebrating The Basilica: An interactive presentation", sponsored with Susan Chalker-Browne author of her new book "The Story of the Basilica St. John the Baptist" and Basilica historian Anne Walsh. That's at The Lantern on Barnes Road.

Also at 7 PM, the NL Historic Trust is hosting a Ward 4 Heritage Forum with the by-election candidates, moderated by Shannie Duff. It's in the MMap Room at the Arts and Culture Centre.

See you there, Happy Citizens!

I can't make it but here is a thought in case there is a lull in conversation - lol! The unions really need to come to the table. They need to sharpen their pencil and agree to find efficiencies. Do we really need six men and three vehicles to fill a pot hole? I can make other cheeky comments but that is not useful or helpful but there seems to be quite a bit of many hands make light work happening. Based on the payout schedule noted in the news there will be a stampede to the HR office for the next job posting at City Hall. Of course we don’t get to see the whole picture in that document but regardless, to say the contracts are rich is an understatement. The unions need to be at the table and be held accountable too.
