Ward 9 News: March 2018

  • Share

Ward 9 official websiteHello, Ward 9 Neighbours!
I believe that great neighbourhoods make a great city and to build great neighbourhoods, community stakeholders have to work with their elected official to discuss the direction of their communities. This is why I am very proud to announce that I will be continuing to host the Ward 9 Community Objectives Workshops (lovingly known as COWs) in all Ward 9 neighbourhoods in 2018.
With the ward boundary changes coming out of the 2017 municipal election, and new communities being added to Ward 9, I am committed to hosting COWs in all of our new neighbourhoods, as well as following up in all of the remaining pre-2017 Ward 9 neighbourhoods.
What are the goals of the 2018 COWs?
  • The goals of the 2018 Community Objectives Workshops are to:
  • Identify the needs and concerns of residents, businesses, community institutions and service providers;
  • Prioritize those needs and concerns and discuss potential solutions;
  • Formulate a strategic plan to resolve and achieve these solutions;
  • Connect that strategic plan with the larger strategic goals of the Ward 9 Office; and
  • Prepare the 2017-2021 Ward 9 Strategic Report for Ward 9 residents that outlines the strategic plan and goals, and how they will be achieved.
These workshops continue to be a huge success and the results will help to direct and guide the work that we do on your behalf.
