- Approximately 20.5 hectares (50.6 acres) of land identified for residential uses offering a range of housing types, including single unit dwellings, semi-detached and multi-unit dwellings and retirement homes.
- An approximate 0.75 hectare (1.85 acre) commercial parcel situated at the northeast corner of the 8th Concession Road/North Talbot Road intersection. This parcel could accommodate commercial uses in a building having a footprint of
approximately 1,200 square metres (13,000 square feet), with associated on-site parking. The types of uses to be permitted include retail, eating establishments, financial institutions, day nursery, adult day care centre, general and professional
offices, personal service shop and accessory uses;
- A 30 metre (98 foot) wide strip of land along the western boundary of the property adjacent to the 8th Concession Road and extending fully from the commercial block to the northern limit of the subject property. The purpose of this strip of
land, which is proposed to be conveyed to the Town, is to provide adequate separation from the industrial uses on the west side of the 8th Concession Road and the proposed residential use of the balance of the subject property. It is intended that the 30 metre (98 foot) strip of land will comprised three components:
a) a berm with appropriate tree plantings on the top to assist with visual screening;
b) a 3 metre (10 foot) multi-use pathway, which would ultimately extend to North Talbot Road and potentially along the northerly limit of the proposed residential lands;
c) a drainage feature/swale for the conveyance of stormwater;
- A stormwater drainage corridor along the northern extent of the property and along the north-eastern portion of the property where it abuts the former railway lands. This stormwater drainage corridor, if deemed acceptable in relation to the
stormwater management scheme yet to be approved for the subject property, would also include a multi-use pathway; an area of land identified for a stormwater management pond at the easterly extent of the subject property, where it abuts the existing Weston Park. This stormwater management pond would be designed as an amenity and would incorporate multi-use pathway linkages to adjacent lands (including Weston Park, potential future multi-use pathway on former railway lands, potential multi-use pathways on the subject property and along the north side of North Talbot Road;
- A multi-use pathway along the north side of North Talbot Road that would ultimately provide connectively to existing homes and Weston Park to the east and other proposed multi-use pathways in the vicinity.
(i) Make an examination of the Curtis Drain and drainage area as submitted by the Town in the “Notice of Request for Drain Improvement” dated September 25, 2018; and

This week, Tecumseh Town Council begins at 5pm with a Public Council Meeting. This meeting will address the proposed Bicycle Lanes on Lesperance Road from Riverside to McNorton. The lanes would be added by removing the paint from Lesperance Road and eliminating the continuous centre left turn lane. Left turn lanes would be retained at Riverside Drive and at McNorton Street. Because most of the cost is covered by a provincial grant and the County's CWATS fund, the impact to the municipality is $11,500. The engineering consultants reviewed resident concerns and responded with the best opportunities for risk mitigation where warranted. They did encourage that pre-existing concerns for speeding and for poor stopping habits of drivers be referred to the Ontario Provincial Police for enforcement.

This week, Tecumseh Town Council will be hosting a Public Meeting to discuss fluoridation of the Town's water supply beginning at 6pm. Tecumseh has purchased its water from the City of Windsor since 2004 and Windsor has supported reintroducing fluoride to its water supply. Tecumseh residents previously held a referendum supporting the introduction of fluoride on December 17, 1968. According to a Windsor Star report from May 14, 2003, when Tecumseh operated its own water treatment plant, its fluoride machinery was shut down in December 2001 after the Ministry of Labour condemned it as unsafe. Fluoride would not be restored until the City of Windsor distributed water once again to the community. In 2012, Tecumseh Town Council passed a By-law to remove fluoride and this decision was implemented in 2013 following the passage of a By-law by the City of Windsor.
The Administrative Report regarding the matter is here. Administration does not take a position in 2019, but previously expressed support for fluoridation in 2012 as a result of the Health Unit support for the practice. You can read the previous report here beginning on Page 178. A recent Health Unit report regarding the state of Oral Health in our community can be found here.
Town Council has received dozens of letters and emails regarding this issue. Those that have been submitted for the record can be found here.
Feel free to reach out on this or other municipal matters by contacting me at 226-773-1910 or firstname.lastname@example.org

contribution from member municipalities of approximately $3,238,667. This represents an increase of $89,915, or $0.32 per person ($9.68 to $10.00 per person).
This week, Tecumseh Town Council will be meeting at 5pm to set the 2019 Business Plan and Budget. The document and accompanying reports can be found here.
Administration is recommending a 2.7% tax levy increase net of growth on the Tecumseh portion of taxes (53% of the total residential tax bill) and represents an increase in the municipal tax bill of approximately $50 on a property assessed at $250,000 (the average assessed value of a home in Tecumseh).
The 2019 budget provides for:
- A $150,000 increase towards the New Infrastructure Levy (NIL). This fund is intended to enhance existing municipal services. As an example, new sidewalks could be constructed under this fund.
- A $100,000 increase towards Lifecycle infrastructure replacement.
- $17.5 million capital expenditure program supported by an increase in Provincial OCIF grant of $377,000 ($700,000 to
$1,077,000) and Federal Gas Tax grant funding of $1,127,500 (a decrease of $21,000 from 2018 level of $1,148,500).
- Service level enhancements in some areas, including:
- Extended Parks and Recreation office hours to include evenings and weekends
- Additional resources to maintain Parks facilities during extended operating hours
- Additional Parks resources to improve department efficiency and effectiveness and to address health and safety issues

- $330,000 for known employee wage and benefit increases including:
- $170,000 for negotiated wage and related benefit increases,
- $60,000 for Bill 148 impact of increasing wages for certain part-time/seasonal employees,
- $55,000 for impact of income tax changes affecting Council compensation, and\
- $45,000 for employee retirement payouts.
- $330,000 increase to general operations including:
- $92,000 estimated increase to contracted policing costs,
- $80,000 increase in materials and supplies, largely impacted by fuel costs, and
- $130,000 increase to professional services, largely due to various studies to be undertaken during 2019, much of
which will be funded through reserves.
In addition, Administration is recommending that Town Council set a Public Meeting for Tuesday, January 29th at 7pm to solicit feedback regarding fluoridation of the Town's water supply. Water is supplied by Windsor but under the Fluoridation Act as it supplies to both Tecumseh and LaSalle, at least one of the municipalities must agree to the change. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit has supplied an Oral Health study as a point of information on this subject. The study can be found here. Administration is not offering a proposed direction on this matter.
