Welcome to Our Neighbourhood

Infill Continues to Pressure Ward 2

As ongoing infill projects throughout the area continue to multiply, many are causing problems for neighbouring residents. Aside from the dust, noise and traffic, additional concerns often arise due to work hours and construction vehicles.

There is something you can do. The Town of Oakville has created a page within its Oakville.ca web site specifically for those who are suffering the effects of neighbouring construction. Called
“My Neighbour’s Construction” the page lists information and links for several concerns often encountered during construction.

Remember, local by-laws are in place that prohibit work on Sundays, require parking permits for construction vehicles and more.

Check out the site and contact the appropriate department to request assistance from a by-law officer.

Coyotes

A case of mange among our coyote population is making coyotes more visible in some residential neighbourhoods as they seek food and warmth. Though there is a rise in awareness that coyotes are around, there is still a great deal of misunderstanding among residents about coyote behaviour and their role in our urban ecology. Coyotes help keep rodent populations in check. They usually steer clear of residential areas and humans, and prefer to make their homes in large parks and woodlands. However, they will occasionally seek food or shelter in residential neighbourhoods if the opportunity arises.

While seeing a coyote in Oakville is not necessarily cause for alarm, it can be concerning when coyotes come a bit too close for comfort. The town’s coyote hazing video explains what to do if you encounter a coyote on your property, and shows you how to haze or scare them away. If embraced by the entire community, repeated hazing ensures coyotes maintain their fear of humans and know our homes are off limits. (See the Video)

Through the coyote reporting system, the town is working with the Oakville Humane Society to assist them in locating and treating infected coyotes.

Coyotes are part of Oakville’s natural environment. To alleviate concerns and lesson human-wildlife conflicts the Town of Oakville has we prepared a Coyote Facts and Tips sheet. More information is available at oakville.ca.

Important information on coyotes is available at the Oakville.ca web site: http://www.oakville.ca/environment/featured-wildlife.html
