I host many opportunities for residents to get engaged with the community throughout the year. Whether you want to take advantage of your local park facilities, meet new neighbours, or learn about City policy, there’s always something happening!
How much does it cost to run the City? When I pay taxes or fees, where does my money go? What are the priority items that should get the most attention? And, how can I contribute my thoughts and share my experiences with the budget process? These are just a few of the questions that get addressed at my Budget Town Hall with the help of special guest speakers, participatory activities, and questions from the audience. Usually takes place in January or February.
Community Clean-Up Day
Come out and join me as I work with residents to clean up our ravines. We usually have cleanups in 4 community parks: the Kay Gardner Beltline, Cedarvale Park, Hillcrest Park and the Nordheimer Ravine. Let’s all do our part to keep Ward 21 green and clean! Usually takes place at the end of April.
Join me at the Artscape Wychwood Barns for a day filled with environmentally focused fun. Residents can participate in family activities, connect with eco-vendors, learn about green initiatives taking place at the City and in our local schools, try their hand at arts and crafts, face-painting and more. The City provides a drop-off area to dispose of hazardous electronic waste and recycling of materials that can’t go in your blue bin. Get ready for our most lively spring event! Usually held in April or May.
Come pick up some nutrient-rich leaf compost for your garden – free of charge and in your neighbourhood! Usually held in 4-6 school parking lots around the Ward on weekdays in May.
Have you caught a whiff of melted butter in the air yet? That’s the tantalizing scent of Ward 21 Movie Nights in the Park! Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and sense of outdoorsy romance to one of my FREE movies, popcorn provided! Movie nights are usually scheduled for June.
Enjoy some late summer rays, some crunchy seasonal corn, and a corny joke or two with your local councillor. The corn and the puns are free and abundant! Usually held on Sunday afternoons through September in different local parks.
