If you have feedback or questions about your neighbourhood, please attend and speak with Mayor and Council. Questions can be submitted prior to the event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neighbourhood Grant Program
Great cities are built on the foundation of strong neighbourhoods. Since residents often know just what is needed to enhance the quality of life in their neighbourhoods, the Neighbourhood Grant Program has been developed to support residents and organizations that have small but powerful ideas that will bring people together and enhance neighbourhoods.
Information about upcoming Public Information Meetings, Public Hearings and other statutory notices can be found on our Public Notices webpage.
