We have a few small lawn signs about the event to help spread the word. Please offer to take one, particularly if you live on Heathcote, Maldon, or Middlewoods or haven’t seen another sign! Just email Sandy Levin with your address.
Councillor Squire is holding a Ward Meeting This Week
Councillor Squire will be at our AGM next week. If you can’t make it next week, consider attending his ward meeting this Thursday, May 21 at 7 pm at Kings College (see map). He has asked Greg Barrett from the City Planning Division to attend the start of the meeting to go over the terms of reference for the new Greater Near Campus Neighbourhood study. This study will deal with the housing issues in the Near Campus area which includes Orchard Park and Sherwood Forest. Councillor Squire will make a brief presentation on some of the things going on at City Hall since the new council was elected:
1. The new multi-year budget process and municipal taxes.
2. Rapid Transit and how it may affect Ward 6.
3. How the new council is working together.
4. Setting priorities for new City initiatives.
He will also answer any questions you have.
Reminder About Safety This Summer
Always lock your doors, even if you are just in the yard for “a minute.” A theft was reported in the area over the weekend where the thief just walked into a house during the day and took a number of things while the home was occupied.
