The goal of the walkabouts is to meet residents who I only know by email, or don’t come to public meetings, and to see the neighbourhood through your eyes: the issues, concerns, what you like, what could be better. It’s also an opportunity for me to share with residents various supports the city has for the community including tree planting, benches, and funding for street parties, community events, or community upgrades.
The next walkabouts are as follows. If you live in these neighbourhood, please join us!
- Glenwood School Drive/Queensway neighbourhood, Wed. July 6, 7pm; meet at corner of Glenwood School Drive and Hazel
- Lakeshore Public School neighbourhood, Thurs. July 21, 7pm; meet at the corner of Newbold and Bruce. I’ll be joined on this walk by our Ward 1&2 public school trustee, Leah Reynolds, who lives in the neighbourhood.
