Links – Coquitlam mayor’s race off to rousing start

Inlet Park Redesign Port Moody

The civic election nominations haven’t even opened yet, and already Barrie Lynch and Richard Steward in Coquitlam are squaring off. The two are vying for the Mayor’s chair currently occupied by Stewart. Always good to get a little bad blood going in the campaign early, adds a little excitement.

Seems we’re not the only blog talking amalgamation. City Caucus ran this piece on amalgamating different cities around Metro Vancouver. While some of it reeks of not knowing exactly where the fault lines are (I can see Port Moody and Coquitlam joining long before Anmore joins anybody), it’s good food for thought.

But before Port Moody thinks about joining forces with anyone, they are presenting draft plans for a redo of Inlet Park. The meeting is Tuesday, September 20th, 6:30pm at City Hall. You can see the plans on their website.

The Port Moody Ecological Society is very proud of the success of the 2011 Shoreline Cleanup. 162 volunteers made it out to the event, and 213kg of crap was pulled from the Inlet. Thanks to everyone who took part.

It’s the 15th anniversary season of the Evergreen Cultural Centre, and you can check out all the cool stuff happening at the Evergreen by downloading this brochure.

If beach volleyball or skateboarding isn’t your thing, you now have another option at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam for something fun to do. Table Tennis is now out of your parent’s wood paneled rec room and into the great outdoors. Actually, sounds like a lot of fun.

In local business reviews, the Fraser Valley Knitting Guild wrote a post about Port Moody’s Black Sheep Yarns.

Coffee.foodies were out for breakfast, and headed over to Chez Cora’s in Coquitlam.

Friend of the blog Michael Kwan hit the House of Tofu Soup.

Who doesn’t love wedding pictures? Tara and Joey looking all cute on Westwood Plateau from Lyndsay London.

And finally, here’s a very cool 2 year long time lapse video of the new Port Mann bridge going up. See you next week!
