PlanLocal: Safer Streets for Ward 2

Councillor Jason Farr has committed $1 million this year for projects dedicated to safe streets.  The funds will be disbursed in a participatory-democracy style vote at the end of June.  We all want safer streets in the Durand neighbourhood and throughout Ward 2.  Our engaged residents and members will want to have their say.  Durand Neighbourhood Association board member Wesley Jamieson is representing the DNA on the Advisory Committee for PlanLocal.  Thanks so much to Wes for his dedication of time and effort for this important community initiative.  Here are the details:
