re Annual General Meeting

Attached is the official notice of the upcoming Annual General Meeting of the Ambleside and Dundarave
Ratepayers’ Association (ADRA), and the 2009-2010 Membership Form.
We urge all members of ADRA to attend this A.G.M. on Saturday, 2009 November 28, not only to elect
a new board of directors but also to discuss the general direction that ADRA should take in 2010. There
are many issues to be resolved by Council in the near future that will affect residents of Ambleside and
Dundarave. We consider that ADRA should be active in representing the residents’ positions on these
issues.
Our present plan is to decide, with your input, on which issues to concentrate, to form committees to
establish our position on these issues, and to present them to Council. Each committee would be chaired
by a director and would include members from ADRA.
Although ADRA must remain apolitical, we should ensure that residents’ views on issues are clearly
expressed to Council. In addition, wherever possible, we should endeavour to have representatives from
ADRA on the municipal working groups that deal with the relevant issues.

POSSIBLE ISSUES OF INTEREST


• Secondary suites
• Budget, Tax Increases
• Infill Housing
• Spot Zoning
• Traffic, Parking
• Ferry to Vancouver from Ambleside
• New Artificial Turf Hockey Field in Ambleside
It is important to build the membership of ADRA and we encourage you to bring prospective members to
the meeting. Please complete the Membership Form prior to the meeting as you must be a member in order
to vote. We are trying to eliminate all mailing so please give us your email address.
