Our West End Neighbourhood Renewal
is looking for West End residents to participate
in an ongoing Safety Committee.
The goal of the committee is to connect residents together to look at areas of concern in the four West Windsor neighbourhoods, and use crime prevention techniques to reduce the opportunity for crime to occur.
This will include: training residents how to do safety audits, talking to neighbours about crime prevention, helping to connect your neighbours to our projects encouraging the use of porch lights/reporting of crime, planning safety projects and prioritizing where our next clean-ups/beautification efforts will take place.
Questions? Contact: Tammy Murray
Community Outreach Coordinator
Our West End, A program of Life After Fifty
This is a chance to:
● learn crime prevention skills
● share information across neighbourhoods
● participate in and/or plan beautification efforts such as neighbourhood clean-ups, graffiti removal and community murals.
Recent Neighbourhood Safety Accomplishments:
We have removed graffiti and created a community mural in the Bridgeview neighbourhood, painted a Community mural in Mic Mac Park in Sandwich Towne, held Crime Preventions Town Halls at the University of Windsor with residents and students, and for Seniors and community members at Life After Fifty.
Our Clean Ups have spanned over 52 West Windsor blocks in St. James Marlborough, River West/University of Windsor, Bridgeview and Sandwich Towne neighbourhoods and we are planning more of each of these community beautification projects!
Where would you like us to go next?
