Oct. 2nd Meeting: Voting Item

At our Oct. 2nd meeting the Planning committee will put a motion forward to vote on. Please send your comments to nen.president@gmail.com and come out to our meeting to vote. 

From the Sept. minutes.

It is a recommendation from the planning committee that NENa move a motion, in the October meeting, to authorize the NENa planning committee to talk to the city planning department to request a interim control by law.

 The Interim Control By-Law will pause construction on James St. N until the master plan can be amended to include the James St. Mobility Hub study and adjust Setting Sail. With the master plan amended, the proposal put forward by developers in the future for properties in the North End will have to abide by the amended Master Plan

North End Food Drive: Sat. Oct. 5th

North End Food Drive:

This Saturday afternoon a group of families will be going door to door in the North End to collect food in support of Welcome Inn. Feel free to leave a plastic bag on your front step or you can also drop it off at the corner of Bay and Burlington. Contact curtisbiehler@gmail.com if you would like to help.


Welcome Inn Food Bank
The Emergency Food Bank was established in 1991 to address the growing number of families experiencing hunger. Each month 400 households come to Welcome Inn Community Centre and receive a three-day supply of food and personal hygiene items. We believe that food is a basic human right, so no one is turned away from receiving. This service is operated primarily by a dedicated group of volunteers. We recently have become a Good Food Organization and are working together with our partners for a healthy and fair food system for all.
