At Beaconsfield’s October public council meeting Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) member, Lorne Jackson, was acknowledged for his community contribution to the committee for more than 7 years. Having recently moved to Sainte Anne de Bellevue, Jackson would no longer be eligible to work on a Beaconsfield committee.
Jackson joined the PAC in 2008 where he worked along other members providing input and opinions on various projects submitted for review.
“Since March 31st 2008, Mr. Jackson has worked diligently with the members of the PAC by providing his valued opinions on the many project submissions he reviewed.” Mayor Georges Bourelle told the audience. “The committee appreciated his sense of humor and his unique way of commenting each file such that it was insightful, unbiased, clear and comprehensive.”
According to PAC Chairman, Councillor Pierre Demers, Jackson’s insight and professional expertise helped guide the PAC in making recommendations to city council that helped preserve Beaconsfield’s uniques character.
” Lorne’s unique insight and professionalism will be sorely missed by the members of the Planning Advisory Committee,” Demers said. “We all wish him the very best and hope he will be able to find the time to join up with us now and again”
