Developer being pushy
Editorial: It’s perhaps not surprising that the developer that wants to build six storeys of student housing where a church now sits at 171 Kortright Rd. W. is taking the case to the Ontario Municipal Board.

Solstice 3 going to OMB over church site plans "Looking at the other two Ugly buildings this developer has put up if the third is to be similar it totally does not fit in with this neighbourhood at all. I also fail to understand how it is that a city can spend (city taxpayer) money on plans for o"

Developer being pushy "The OMB needs to allow for a decision period before getting involved. Funny come to think of it has the OMB EVER sided with a city planning group??"

Why is Guelph catering to so few bicyclists?
Dear Editor: When an organization such as the Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation can claim only one per cent of people commute by bike regularly, then it appears that the city is on the wrong track be putting in even more bike lanes (Tribune Guest Editorial – Making Guelph a Better Place, May 21).
Skateboard parks aren’t a need
Dear Editor Re: Skateboard jabs are unwarranted, (Tribune letters, May 14)
Citizens at mercy of developers
Dear Editor: Re: All parties should meet to resolve church debate (Tribune letters, May 19)
Tax system not senior-friendly
Dear Editor: I agree with the comments of Jay Kumar in regards to Guelph’s assessment system (Tribune letters, May 5)
Food trucks for thought
Food trucks are becoming something of a phenomenon in many parts of Ontario – and maybe soon in Guelph too. Established restaurants, which pay property taxes, might not be among their fans, though.
All parties should meet to resolve church debate
Dear editor: I have a question for Michael Bird, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Niagara; Dr. Franco Vaccarino, president of the University of Guelph; Guelph Mayor Cam Guthrie ; city council; HIP Developments Inc.; and the McElderry Community Association.
Declining enrolment makes plan unnecessary
Dear editor: My understanding is that Solstice means either of the two times a year when the sun is at its greatest, which to me should be exciting. The institutional-looking Solstice building at Arkell and Gordon is not exciting and will look even worse once it’s in technicolour, and yet they keep on multiplying.
Wind and ice dangers issue for consideration
Dear editor: After listening to the presentations to city council on April 13 regarding the rezoning application for the St. Matthias church property, and reading the many articles and letters in the media, I felt it was time to comment.
It will be a big day for us, too
June 6 will be a big day for Torontonians, when the UP Express starts between Union Station and Pearson airport. But it will also be a significant day for Guelph, as that’s the day it will become possible to get from our own downtown to the airport by train.
Please don’t feed birds white bread
Dear editor: Pet peeve number . . . People who feed birds bread. And right now, people who are feeding baby birds – less than a week old – white bread.
Skatepark jabs are unwarranted
Dear editor: Had Hugh Whiteley taken part in the expansive vetting process to determine the best location for a new skateboard park in Guelph (which has been ongoing since Deerpath was closed in 2009), he would not be so surprised that the Silvercreek location was chosen.
Thumbs down hits wrong targets
Dear editor: A few days has elapsed since I read a recent thumbs down criticizing loud motorcycles and pickup trucks. I was thinking my reaction to it would subside, but it hasn't.
Federal election murmurs
The volley by local political figures in today’s Trib on the merits of the tax plan unveiled last week by Liberal leader Justin Trudeau is part of an intensifying focus on the federal election expected Oct. 19.
Dog duty colouring our world
Dear editor: Guelph’s dog owners are finding creative ways to decorate their neighbourhoods using plastic bags of doggy-do.
Car sharing is the way to go
Dear editor: I am delighted to learn that city council is moving forward with a plan to support the expansion of car sharing (Tribune, May 7).
Diocese big part of problem
Dear editor: I wish to respond to Greg Elliott’s recent letter in defence of the decision by the Diocese of Niagara to sell the St. Matthias church property to HIP Developments for $2 million rather than accept a lower offer from another church congregation.
