After over a year of working on and collaborating with community members, the Western Waterfront Master Plan is set to make is public appearance. The meeting is set for:
St Joe’s Health Centre, 30 The Queensway Avenue
Please see attached notice.
This project will provide an opportunity to create a meaningful and positive relationship with our waterfront.

I want to thank everyone who made this year’s light exchange an successful and exciting event, including all those who came by to visit us and exchange their lights.
