Plan Local Announcement - September 14

We just got the following message inviting us to the Plan Local Announcment!  

"Good Afternoon,

Hope you all had a great summer and enjoyed all that sun.  Councillor Farr requested that I send out an invite to the Planlocal Safe Street Advisory  Committee, and to the ward 2 Neighbourhood Association for the announcement of the $1 million Plan Local Safe Streets projects that were voted on by the Ward 2 community in June. 

This announcement will take place prior to Council meeting on Wednesday September 14th, 2016 at 4:45pm, 2nd floor City Hall outside of the council chambers.


Cheers,
Ryan T Leverton

LRT Public Open House and Bayfront Beach Survey

LRT Public Open Houses 

Bayfront Beach Survey


Over 200 residents have shared their ideas for the future of Bayfront Beach so far! You can participate online HERE. Please continue to share the survey link with your neighbours and colleagues before September 30, 2016. Your responses will help the project team: 
  • Better understand the historical context, perspectives and stakeholders related to Bayfront Beach;
  • Better understand how Bayfront Beach is used and how the community would like to use it in the future; and
  • Gather feedback on the different options for Bayfront Beach and inform the final recommendations.

Voting is fast and convenient. You can fill out an online ballot here, and find the list of projects online here or at one of our voting locations across the Ward. Select your top 10 projects from the list of 24, confirm you are a Ward 2 resident or business owner, and you’re good to go!

The entire voting process takes just few minutes.  The hard part is deciding on 10!  Most people have had a ballot delivered to their home.  If you need more ballots (for each person in your family) contact information is at the end.  At the voting stations below, there is also a list of the 24 proposed safe streets locations.

June 19 - Make the Streets Your Playground

(NEN) North End Neighbourhood Association, has a table at this event just North of Barton.  If you are able to help out, we would appreciate it.  

Open Streets is a car free event.  It is a lot of fun with many vendors and organizations on the sidewalks and the street is open to bikes, scooters, hoverboards, walking, and space ships, 

Hope to see you there!
