Durand Annual General Meeting – Nov. 17, 2015 (7-9 pm)

The Durand Annual General Meeting will be held November 17th 2015, from 7-9pm at the YWCA in the Seniors Auditorium.  Our feature presentation is a must attend as we are engaging in a very important project for our Durand Neighbourhood.  It is called Character Zoning.  This is an approach that will help us to protect and conserve our neighbourhood.  This is new for Hamilton; it will be groundbreaking for not only Durand but other neighbourhoods such as ours both in Hamilton and across the province.  We need your support and your engagement.
