Community Meeting on Unsanctioned and Unsafe Street Parties

All public agencies in the City of London involved in public safety, health care, education, and student life are very concerned about the unintended consequences of unsanctioned street parties which have occurred in near campus neighbourhoods. As a result of the most recent event on Broughdale Avenue in September 2018, a task force has been working on a variety of policy matters related to legislation, by-laws and internal policies. This group includes representatives from the City, London Police Service, Western University Administration, and Student Union who specialize in policy matters, and on-campus student programming. If any changes to City By-laws are proposed, Civic Administration will present them to the Community and Protective Services Committee (CPSC) by April 2019.

In an effort to engage the public in the discussion about solutions, a community meeting will be held:

Date: February 25, 2019
Time: 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Location: Sir Frederick Banting High School
