Community Benefits Meeting - Monday, January 21 at 7pm


There will be a meeting this Monday at Cardinal Place regarding community benefits. Please take a look at the email and link below from Sarah Morris, the Windsor Essex Community Benefits Coalition Coordinator. I also have flyers in my office regarding the event.

Hey Fabio, 
This Monday, January 21st, at 7:00 PM, the Coalition will be hosting a neighbourhood meeting at Cardinal Place (3140 Peter St) all about Community Benefits and the new Gordie Howe International Bridge. The Windsor Detroit Bridge Authority will be there to answer questions, update folks on the Bridge and Community Benefits process, and hand out their survey. 
Would you be able to share this event? I will be around Sandwich this afternoon with some flyers and handouts. 
Thank you so much! 
Sarah Morris, Coordinator

City Council Meeting - 01/07/19

City Council met on Monday, January 7th and approved funding for several Business Improvement Districts in our community, including Sandwich Town and Wyandotte Ave. W. The funds total approximately $40,000.00 for both districts, but there may be some changes in the funds allocated to Wyandotte Ave W. depending on any cost fluctuations as the projects get rolled out.

Items such as benches, bicycle racks and waste receptacles will be added to Sandwich St. and Wyandotte Ave. W. All funds were provided for by the ASSOCIATION OF MUNICIPALITIES OF ONTARIO (AMO) Main Street Revitalization Initiatives Fund which is a provincial body, and all items should be installed by the end of summer, 2019. This is a one time grant from AMO and no City dollars will be used for this capital outlay.
