Improved Greater Sudbury Transit Sunday Service Starts April 19

Greater Sudbury Transit is improving its Sunday, Holiday and After 10 p.m. schedules for more reliable service at every stop. Route changes come into effect starting Sunday, April 19, 2015. The improved service schedule is available at www.greatersudbury.ca/transit , the Downtown Transit Terminal or by dialing 705-675-3333.

"More efficient public transit on Sunday is a positive first step," said Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger. "I look forward to additional improvements that create a better public transit service and I am committed to working with citizens and council to provide a more consistent transit experience for people across Greater Sudbury."

Lasalle/Peppertree 305 is a new route that starts April 19 to better serve passengers on Sundays and holidays. Route 305 will serve stops previously on Route 300 to Lansing Avenue, between 11:15 a.m. and 6:15 p.m. Service to Cambrian College has been moved to Route 402.

Lasalle/Madison/Cambrian 300 is an existing route that begins split service on April 19 to serve passengers on Sundays, holidays and after 10 p.m. The last bus on Route 300 leaves the Downtown Transit Terminal at 10:15 a.m. and resumes service at 7:15 p.m. to run until 12:30 a.m.

Barry Downe/Shopping Centre 402 will serve Cambrian College and the New Sudbury Centre on Sundays and holidays. To improve travel time, the bus will no longer enter the parking lot of New Sudbury Centre.

West End/Gatchell/Copper Cliff 640 will improve travel time on Sundays, holidays and after 10 p.m. by proceeding straight on Lorne Street to Copper Cliff on outbound trips from the Downtown Transit Terminal. Inbound trips from Copper Cliff to downtown will serve bus stops in Gatchell. Bus stops in Copper Cliff will also be streamlined on the inbound trip.

Regent/Four Corners/University 502 will consolidate four stops in downtown Sudbury with one stop to improve travel time on Sundays, holidays and after 10 p.m.

LoEllen/Copper/Four Corners 189 will improve travel time on Sundays, holidays and after 10 p.m. by consolidating bus stops in downtown Sudbury, moving stops on Latimer Crescent to Loach’s Road, and moving stops on Louisa Drive and Muriel Crescent to Cam and Regent Streets.

Howey/Moonlight/Shopping Centre 241 will move stops on Donald and Yollie Streets to Raymond Street to improve travel time on Sundays, holidays and after 10 p.m.

Coniston 103 and Garson/Falconbridge 303 will introduce four stops at the RioCan Centre for improved shopping convenience during outbound trips from the Downtown Transit Terminal on Sundays, holidays and after 10 p.m.

The Healthy Community Initiative fund supports one of Council’s strategic priorities; the promotion of Greater Sudbury as a healthy community.

Annual budget allocations are prepared during the year’s budget deliberations and approvals.

Residents wishing to discuss and provide feedback on the HCI fund including whether or not residents think the fund should continue, how it’s used and administered, and ways to redefine the policy, may do so by either filling out the online form, filling out the printed form or by attending the Public Consultation meeting. Those wishing to make a presentation at the Public Consultation meeting must register with the Office of the City Clerk by calling 3-1-1.

Those who cannot attend the March 24 meeting are welcome to submit written comments online at www.greatersudbury.ca/hci, starting at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, March 9 until 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 27. Printed forms will also be available at your local Citizen Service Centre and Library.

Citizens Invited to Apply for Appointment to Arts and Culture Grant Juries

The City of Greater Sudbury recognizes the value that arts and culture contributes to the community with investments through the Arts & Culture Grant Program. The Greater Sudbury Development Corporation (GSDC) is seeking 12 citizens for appointment to its two Arts & Culture Grant Juries to enhance the GSDC’s decision-making process through community engagement.

Jury Objectives

Working with the Business Development Officer for Arts & Culture, both sets of jurors will have the role of reviewing and evaluating applications submitted annually to the City of Greater Sudbury Arts & Culture Grant Program. The juries will recommend a fair allocation of the available funds based on the assessment criteria laid out in the Arts & Culture Grant Policy. Jurors should have regard for the City’s commitment to supporting the growth of the local arts and culture sector. The GSDC Board will receive the juries’ recommendations to determine and finalize funding allocations.

Jury Composition

Jurors will be selected with consideration to fair representation of cultural/artistic disciplines, gender, generations, and cultural diversity. Nominees must be residents of the City of Greater Sudbury and at least 18 years old. Appointments to the juries are unpaid volunteer positions.

The Operating Jury will evaluate applications to the Operating Grant Stream based on three criteria: artistic/cultural merit, community impact/benefits and organizational/financial health . In addition to representation from the GSDC Board, the jury will be composed of two professional artists, two administrators from arts and culture organizations and one community member at large.

The Project Jury will evaluate applications to the Project Grant Stream for special or one-time activities. In addition to representation from the GSDC Board, the jury will be composed of two professional artists, two administrators from arts and culture organizations and three community members at large.

Nomination Process

Written or e-mail letters and résumés may be addressed to Emily Trottier, Business Development Officer and e-mailed to emily.trottier@greatersudbury.ca. All letters should clearly indicate your reasons for wishing to serve on the jury, which of the two juries you wish you serve, and a list all direct affiliations with local arts and culture initiatives.

Operating Procedures

 The Jury term will expire on June 30, 2016 unless extended by resolution of the GSDC Board.
