As we prepare for the summer solstice and the longest day of sun, I hope you have all found joy in this season of renewal.
Term of Council Priorities
Last month, Council collaboratively identified three priority areas for measurable outcomes city-wide. The three areas include:
- Ecological and Economic Sustainability
- Liveable Neighbourhoods
- Trust and Transparency at City Hall
As we work together on the roadmap in these areas, I look forward to keeping residents informed of the progress on these fronts. I remain very optimistic about what we can achieve together in this term of Council.
Ward 3 Office Pop-Ups
Once again, I will be hosting Ward 3 Office Pop-Ups around the ward as a way for residents to connect directly with me in community. The next two are booked for:
- June 15: 9:30am to noon – Royal Oaks Dairy (225 East Ave N)
- July 13: 9:30am to noon – Rooneys (724 Main St E)
I will post the full schedule for the year on my social media and through my e-newsletter.
Infrastructure Renewal Projects
- My office will be co-hosting a community meeting with Public Works staff for two roadway reconstruction projects Wilson Street(Victoria to Sherman) and Phase 1 of Sherman Ave (King southbound) on June 22 from 6:30-8p. At the time of writing, the location wasn’t set, but residents can contact my office for the location details.
- The Woodlands Park Spray Pad went to tender at the end of last month. Staff will be reviewing proposals and choosing a vendor. They anticipate construction will start in July and will complete this year. The spraypad should be operational for the 2024 summer season.
Opening Streets – King St
On Sunday, June 18, 2023 from 10am to 2pm King Street E will be closed to vehicle traffic from Gage Ave to John St and opened for residents to walk, cycle, and roll along the street. The street will be animated with a variety of activities and stations for everyone to enjoy.
