Community League Presidents Breakfast:
One of the best parts of my job is being able to connect and work with so many great community leaders throughout Ward 10. Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to host a large number of Ward 10 Community League Presidents for breakfast. I feel it’s important to stay connected to the communities throughout Ward 10, and the issues that they are facing.
One of the key themes that emerged from this breakfast was the difficulties Community Leagues face when trying to complete a community project like a spray park. Whether it's having to complete a business plan or go through a parkland change process to create a beach volleyball court. There are too many barriers to completing any community project, especially when these projects are volunteer driven.
As this is something that needs to be addressed, I will also be hosting a meeting in the near future that will bring together Community League leaders and members of our Administration to discuss this issue and work towards a solution.
