Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) – Public Opinion Survey

Now’s the time to Have Your Say about community safety issues, local policing priorities and the quality of police service in Durham Region.

As part of our ongoing commitment to service improvement, the DRPS is once again reaching out to the public and conducting a wide-ranging public opinion survey.

The DRPS wants to hear from you about issues that affect community safety and the quality of police services. The 49-question survey takes about 10 minutes to complete online. The feedback will be used to help guide operational priorities and support the direction of the next Business Plan.

The 2015 survey is now available online at www.drps.ca/ survey and will be available until December 31, 2015.

Road Rehabilitation

The Regional Municipality of Durham is proceeding with road rehabilitation on Simcoe Street (Regional Road 2), from 200 metres south of the Canadian Pacific Railway (C.P.R.) bridge to 620 metres north of Coates Road, in the City of Oshawa and the Township of Scugog. The work will consist of intersection improvements, culvert and storm sewer replacement, guide rail replacement, roadway illumination, ditching, asphalt removal and replacement and new pavement markings.

Daily lane restrictions will be required on Simcoe Street and Coates Road to perform the work in a safe and efficient manner; however access to industrial/residential entranceways will be maintained when possible. Motorists should expect delays within the construction limits during the project.

The Region's contractor, Brennan Paving Ltd., will start work the week of Aug. 17 and is expected to complete the work by Nov. 27. Please note that unfavourable weather conditions may influence the work schedule.

The Region realizes that the construction work will be disruptive and will complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible. Drivers are asked to exercise additional caution for pedestrian and construction worker safety.

The Township has given conditional approval to allow limited site alteration at the Greenbank Airport Site for the purpose of permitting the owner to conduct remediation at the Site to address the contaminated and/or prohibited fill deposited in contravention of the Site Alteration Agreement with the owner and the Site Alteration By-law.  The Township's consultant, Golder Associates Ltd.  has identified prohibited materials and contaminants of concern in the stockpiled fill materials at concentrations that are above the applicable soil criteria. The remediation plan targets 31 separate locations in the stockpile. At one location that is difficult to access, the owner intends to inject amendments into the soil to attempt to degrade the contaminants. At the remaining 30 locations, excavation will be used to remove the soil at each location where contamination was previously found. Excavated soil will be placed in temporary stockpiles and testing of each stockpile will be completed to determine whether it can be either used as backfill or removed from the Site to an appropriate disposal facility. At each of the remediation locations, soil testing will be conducted by a Qualified Person to confirm that all contaminated fill has been removed. The Township has also retained Golder to conduct full monitoring of the remediation activities.  The Township continues to prohibit any new fill from being brought on to the Site and intends to conduct further independent testing to verify that full remediation has been achieved in accordance with the conditional approval given.

For particulars of the conditional approval given the following documents can be accessed:

1.  Conditional Approval Letter from Loopstra Nixon LLP to Miller Thomson LLP dated July 21, 2015

2.   Remediation Plan by D.L.Services Inc. dated June 8, 2015 as clarified on June 29, 2015; and

3.   Comments by Golder Associates Ltd. Dated July 8, 2015.
