Front Yard Parking 
by Greg ThompsonPresident, OEVCA 
Once again, By-law Enforcement hasbeen issuing tickets for “illegal” park-ing in our front yards, an issuewhich has always beentricky for theneighbourhood.
How dowe balance the legitimate needs of residents for reasonable parking withour desire to maintain ourheritagestreetscapes and not have front yardsbecome little more than parking lots?
Car parking was not an issue when ourhouses were built 100 years or more

 Presidents Corner 
by Greg ThompsonPresident, OEVCA 
The summer, while hot, has beenrelatively uneventful for me.
Withboth the Association and the UrbanLeague of London, which I haveagreed to chair for the next year, on summer hiatus,I’ve been free to spend time with family and friends.
The Block Party in July was a fantastic opportunity tochat with neighbours that I rarely see.There have been some things that have occurred overthe past few months that may require some thoughtwhen we get back to business in the fall.
The WesternFair has gone through a reorganization process andthe result, the creation of a Western Fair District, mayhave some impacts on our neighbourhood.
To be honest, I don’t really understand the plan andthe effects it may have on us down the road – weweren’t involved in any of the discussions – but we willtake a closer look at it.We shouldn’t forget Lorne Avenue Public Schooleither.
As many of you know, the efforts of local resi-dents to “save the school” a few years ago was success-ful in removing it from the closure list, but the schoolboard was quite clear at the time that the topic mightcome up again in the future.
It was a reprieve, not anoutright victory.
We need to remain vigilant, and thefate of the school remains top-of-mind for the Associa-tion.
We support the work of the Old East Village Community Association, making our neighbourhood an even better place to live. Pleaseenroll our household as a member for the year 2011. Our membership fee of $10 is enclosed. Name .............................................................

Don’t Lead a Dog’s Life!: A Landlord/Tenant Perspective" 
by Linda Wayne
Dogs are becoming a bigger issue as London grows and therental market tightens. A Landlord cannot evict you for buying a dog after move-in, but they can refuse dogs before then. If  you sign a lease prohibiting dogs then buy one, you can’t tech-nically be evicted, however you will break the good standing  you have with your Landlord which can create other problems. So if you don’t care about your Landlord and sneak a dog inafter signing a lease are you scot-free? Nope. Most evictionsinvolving dogs are for noise that ruins the reasonable enjoy-ment of the premises for other Tenants and for damages.That covers landlord/tenant regulations but the City of Lon-don has additional rules. Large dogs must always be licensedwith a tagged collar. On a rental property, dogs must be on aleash not longer than 2 metres unless the Landlord allows off-leash dogs on the property (this is when you want a good rela-tionship with the Landlord). Regardless of who consents, only3 dogs per dwelling unit are permitted. The City enforces theserules with fees and by charging an Animal Control Officer toseize the dog.
