The community meeting to discuss the Lynx Lymmo project will be held on Thuesday 26 January 2012 (see attached public notice). The consultants will be presenting their preferred northern alignment at that meeting. Our neighborhood has been very much engaged in this urban planning effort and we have every reason to anticipate that our concerns and preferences will be reflected in the Consultant’s recommended alignment. This meeting will be our final chance to influence the future path of this transportation system which could be a huge benefit to our neighborhood. I hope that each of you will attend and that the Lake Formosa neighborhood will be well represented.

The Menello Museum contacted us and wanted everyone to know about this cat, in case she is yours. (If unclaimed, she will be adopted by someone if possible).

Subject: Neighborhood Cat?
I am not sure if you have the capability of emailing your neighbors, but I thought I would ask.
Two or three weeks ago we somehow ended up with another cat. She looks pregnant although we are not positive. We waited a week or so to see if she would go home and she cried to come in the building and loves people, so we know she is not wild. Anyway we have her in a safe foster home pending arrival of kittens. I wonder if she is a lost pet that someone may be looking for. Here is her photo. If no one claims her she will be spayed and adopted out and we will find homes for her kittens (if they exist).
