Bay Ward is on the verge of big changes. The coming LRT and re-development of Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre are opportunities to involve our surrounding communities in the planning of these major projects.
Britannia Park is a historical, natural gem but the Ron Kolbus-Lakeside Centre is in need of updating. I will work with our neighbourhoods to ensure our community’s values are reflected in this process.
FOCUS ON TRANSIT AND INFRASTRUCTURE
I want to make sure that additional local input regarding our community needs are heard as LRT planning continues. I am committed to ensuring that these initiatives are sustainable and contribute to a vibrant, liveable community, with pedestrian-friendly roads and walking paths, as well as cycling routes.
Families need access to good recreational facilities in their neighbourhoods. I will work with you to update our aging recreational facilities. A liveable community also means our seniors must get the support to enable them to continue living independently.
More young families create the need for better child care access. The city has a role in planning child care. I want to build more capacity in Bay Ward for affordable and quality child care spaces.
