City wins award for Alton Campus project

Parks and Recreation Ontario has honoured the city with an Award of Excellence in Design for the Alton Campus project, which includes the recently opened Haber Recreation Centre and the adjacent Norton Park.

The award recognizes a park, recreation and/or cultural facility that has demonstrated high standards of planning, design, community involvement, operation and maintenance, quality of aesthetics, usability, accessibility and versatility.

Congratulations and special thanks to Chris Glenn, Director of Parks and Recreation, and his entire team for their work.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
