A Strategy for the West-End: Our Time is Now


Notwithstanding previous plans that focused on specific neighbourhoods, we've never had a comprehensive strategy for the west-end. Over the next 12 - 18 months, I plan to work with key stakeholders to finally address this gap. See my proposal below (click on the link) that was recently  published by The Windsor Star and please share your thoughts as we move forward.

Public Meeting Next Tuesday

Dear West-end Residents: 

Please see an email I received below from a member of the group who is hosting the meeting: 

"A citizens group concerned about the declining quality of life in the west end of Windsor have scheduled a public meeting for residential homeowners July 10, 2012, 7 pm, at Bedford United Church, 3340 Sandwich St., Windsor.

This meeting is being held to review legal options taxpayers have to combat declines in neighbourhoods, everything from by-law infractions, partying, parking and others.

A lawyer will give a presentation of how the law can be used to restore these neighbourhoods.

For details call Bob Nagy at519 973 0978."

I will be attending the meeting.  Hope to see you there.
