More Fall Williamsville Happenings

Dear Neighbours,

As the days get shorter and cooler, there are many things happening in Williamsville neighbourhoods in the coming weeks.

The following item is for information to anyone interested from the Sunnyside neighbourhood parkland.

1. Notice Re: Meeting Concerning St. Joseph/St Mary Site

Council will be considering a motion to reconsider their current proposal for the above site on November 1. Many people have asked those who are involved with the neighbourhood issue how they might contact councillors and what they might write. Therefore, on Tuesday, October 25, people who are interested in discussing the ‘next steps’ in this ongoing debate are invited to come to a meeting at St. Luke’s Church Hall from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. This will not be a meeting with city staff – just those who are interested in pursuing more parkland for this site.

If you cannot make it and would like to discuss this, please email John Clements or email Constance Adamson.
