Kalum Street Reconfiguration Project

Posted on: Sep 12 2014 - 2:19pm in Development Services

The City is set to begin work on the Kalum Street Reconfiguration project. The street conversion, designed and planned with support from ICBC, is intended to reduce the volume and speed of traffic, improve safety, and encourage more cycling and pedestrian traffic.

This road reconfiguration, often referred to as a “road diet,” involves converting the existing four-lane/three-lane roadway into three lanes made up of two through lanes and a centre two-way left turn lane. The reconfiguration will begin at Park Avenue and end at Soucie Avenue.

Recent traffic counts indicate Kalum Street sees an average of approximately 7,000 vehicles a day. After the reconfiguration traffic capacity will be 20,000 vehicles a day, so even if the City’s population were to increase three-fold, the reconfigured Kalum Street will have room for this growth.

A public information session will take place on Thursday, September 18, 2014 from 4-8 p.m., at the Banquet Room at the Terrace Sportsplex The public is invited to drop in, review the road reconfiguration detail and discuss the project with City staff.

Work is scheduled to begin on September 15, 2014 with the installation of new traffic signage and line painting will take place the week of September 22, 2014, weather permitting.

Please visit the City’s website at www.terrace.ca for more details on this project or call 250-615-4000 for further information.

Recycling Update

Posted on: Sep 11 2014 - 4:16pm in Top Story

We have now reached the end of the third month of the City of Terrace’s participation in the MMBC curbside recycling program. This new program has introduced changes to our overall system of collection. In addition to the bi-weekly curbside recycling component we have also shifted from weekly garbage collection to bi-weekly garbage collection, and introduced a two can limit bi-weekly (down from two cans per week to two cans every 2 weeks).

Key Observations at the 3-Month Mark

  • Levels of overall program participation remain high. In the first 2-3 weeks of collection there were higher than average weights recorded, this is assumed to be a result of stockpiling (Note: “level of participation” is based on recycling weights)
  • Plastic bags and Styrofoam continue to be the main contaminant in the regular packaging and printed paper - PPP recycling (as reported from our collection personnel and Do Your Part)
  • Glass pickup and communications around glass pickup continues to be a challenging part of the Terrace program.

Quantities - Mixed Printed Paper and Packaging (PPP) and Glass

  • For reporting periods between May 20th - August 14th (a total of 7 weeks of recycling pick-up) residents have put 90,650 kg NOT INCLUDING GLASS at the curb.
  • This works out to approximately 1600kg for each truck delivered to the depot (for comparison, a full garbage truck typically weighs around 4000kg).
  • For reporting periods between May 20th – August 14th, we have diverted 3,145 kg of GLASS from the landfill.
  • Considering glass and PPP recycling together, the total weight diverted from the landfill for this first 3 month period is: 93,795kg!

Glass

Glass pickup and communications around glass pickup continues to be a challenging part of our new program. The good news is that we have recycled thousands of kilograms of glass since May. However, due to the high level of participation, our method of collection (only one 1 tonne truck with 2 collectors) and issues around the types of containers being used, we have not been able to collect all the glass in one day, and it has taken up to 3 days per glass collection cycle. We are working to remind residents that glass must be placed in a rigid, plastic container. Glass continues to be placed out in cardboard, plastic bags and other unacceptable containers. For the first two months we were still accepting this glass, but we are now “stickering” and leaving unacceptable containers behind. (Note: To help our collectors better distinguish between compost and glass, we encourage residents to use rigid blue containers. We will collect glass in any rigid, plastic use blue rigid containers containers, but the blue recycling containers will help quicken the collection process).

Contamination Levels

Do Your Part (the Depot for our recycling) reports the rate of recycling contamination (materials that are not supposed to be in the recycling) has been dropping every month since program launch!

Specifically:

  • Plastic film is still an issue; part of this challenge is that we need to remind residents that it is not only plastic bags; but any type of plastic film that is not acceptable.
  • Rates of Styrofoam contamination and glass contamination have both been decreasing steadily.

Education:

  • Staff continues to educate and provide information to the public on an ongoing basis. Our main method of education continues to be “stickering” bags that contain contamination. Each sticker includes a phone number that residents can call, and staff then reviews the issue with residents.

In addition to this staff has:

  • Continued outreach through social media, including our website, Facebook and Twitter.
  • Developed a display board which visually show which materials are acceptable, and which are not. The display board is on a rotation within the community, and has spent one week at Safeway, one week at Save-on Foods, one week at Canadian Tire, and is currently residing at the Skeena Mall.

Next Steps

  • With the first 3 months of the program complete, Staff will now begin weighing garbage trucks regularly so we will be able to track diversion compared with the weight of the garbage still going to landfill.
  • Staff has developed a survey for residents to gather general feedback on the recycling program, so we can continue to make improvements and changes (where possible). Please take our survey
  • Staff will continue to sticker bags for contamination and provide general updates and reminders on the Facebook site.
  • Staff will seek additional outreach opportunities.

Former Mayor Jack Talstra Honoured with Naming of Road

Posted on: Sep 08 2014 - 2:09pm in City Hall

The City of Terrace will honour long-serving former Mayor Jack Talstra by renaming “Industrial Way” in the Skeena Industrial Development Park to “Jack Talstra Way” in a street naming ceremony scheduled for early October.

Mayor Dave Pernarowski said “It was always Jack’s vision to develop the lands at the airport so Terrace could diversify and grow its economy through industrial development. Now that Jack’s vision has become a reality, we’d like to recognize his service and dedication to the City of Terrace by renaming the street leading into the industrial park.”

Jack Talstra ran for Alderman of the City and served from 1976 to 1981. After a brief respite from City Council, Talstra was sworn in officially as the Mayor of Terrace on December 2, 1985 and would serve until November 2008, a total of 23 years as Mayor and six years as Alderman. Talstra holds the title as the longest serving mayor for the City of Terrace.

“Jack spearheaded the move to transition the airport lands into an industrial park. Renaming this street is a wonderful tribute to not only recognize Jack’s years’ of service, but more importantly, his vision for creating an economically diverse community.” Mayor Pernarowski added. Jack Talstra has received many awards and recognitions for his achievements over the years including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012 and the Order of Terrace in 2009.

Glass Recycling

Posted on: Aug 21 2014 - 3:34pm in Public Works

The good news is that in 3 months of glass pickup, we have recycled thousands of kilograms of glass.  That is a lot of pickle and jam jars!

However, due to the high level of participation, our garbage collectors have not been able to collect all the glass in one day, and it has taken up to 3 days.

If your glass is not picked up on the last Monday of the month, please be patient and leave your glass out until the Wednesday of the given month. If by Wednesday afternoon your glass is not picked up, please contact the Public Works office at 250-615-4021.

To help distinguish between compost and glass, we are encouraging residents to use the blue recycle containers. At this time, we will continue to collect glass in rigid, plastic containers, but the blue recycling containers will help quicken the collection process.

Please remember to remove all lids from the glass jars and place them with the household recycling.

Recycling will be collected bi-weekly (every second week) and will not have a bag limit.  Household garbage will also now be collected bi-weekly, will alternate weeks with recycling, and will have a two container limit. Glass will be collected the last Monday of every month. The revised garbage, recycling and composting schedule is attached here

Glass bottles and jars will need to be set out in a rigid container of your choice, such as the one shown here  (http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/orbis-blue-under-desk-legal-recycling-bin-0423070p.html) or here http://www.homedepot.com/p/Argee-2-Gallon-Plastic-Pail-RG502/100184968

A recycling starter package is being delivered to every household the last week of April.
This starter package includes a 30 bag supply of recycling bags, a detailed list of accepted materials as well as a revised collection schedule. Once all the recycling bags in the starter package are used up, households will need to purchase their own translucent plastic bags.

Community Services Guide

Posted on: Jan 29 2010 - 12:11pm in

The recent announcement that West Fraser is permanently shutting down its Eurocan operations in Kitimat means that residents in the Kitimat-Terrace Valley will face some challenges as jobs are lost in the region.

The District of Kitimat, City of Terrace and the RuralBC Secretariat, along with many community partners, have been working together to develop a Transition Strategy in response to the announcement.  This strategy is aimed at finding ways to help displaced workers from Eurocan and other businesses affected by the closure.

This Guide was designed to create one source of information for special programs, employment services, community and social services, worker adjustment and retraining opportunities in Terrace and Kitimat.  There is also information about government funding and financial services.

The Kitimat & Terrace Community Services Guide is sponsored by the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Community and Rural Development, Community Development Trust, and by Northern Savings Credit Union through its Community Reinvestment and Corporate Responsibility Initiative.  We gratefully acknowledge this financial support.

We sincerely hope this information will guide you to the experts who can help.  Together, we can move forward to the future.

Measuring up the North: Terrace

Posted on: Jan 01 2010 - 3:54pm in

As part of the Measuring Up the North initiative made up of 41 communities in the North, in 2007 the City of Terrace Council appointed volunteer community members interested in improving Terrace's accessibility for persons with disabilities, seniors and families with small children.  The Measuring Up Terrace Committee fulfilled its mandate and was dissolved by City Council in March 2012.

The City's Measuring Up Terrace Committee received grant funding through 2010 Legacies Now which enabled the Committee to hire a Co-ordinator who worked with the Committee to conduct a Community Assessment and Strategic Plan.  In addition, the funding provided money to undertake some small projects that will help to improve accessibility in the community.

A Community Assessment Survey was distributed throughout the community seeking input on the City's existing level of accessibility, and for suggestions on how to make Terrace more inclusive and accessible.  Responses were collected until July 31, 2008, and results of the survey are posted below:
