Farewell to our Community Planner – Kevin Edwards

Dedicated and creative public servants are a profound resource in the lives of our neighborhoods. Sadly, Ward 14 is about to lose one our best public servants. Kevin Edwards, our community planner is leaving the City to take up the Job as Chief Planner in Sarnia. Kevin lives and farms part-time near Sarnia and his roots are there, so this is a marvelous opportunity for him.

Many of you have worked along-side Kevin on a host of issues large and small in Ward 14 and know what a treasure he has been. Even if you haven’t met him, you will have seen the results of his work. With good grace, humour and a keen eye for the liveability of our neighborhoods Kevin has done it all: everything from initiating the Bloor Dundas visioning study to improving the quality of affordable housing to helping many of you sort out the sometimes complicated procedures for minor property improvements.

If you want to pass along warm wishes you can email him at kedward@toronto.ca. His last day at the city will be February 20th.
