I invite all Londoners to get involved in supporting and celebrating Canadian talent!
Speaking of getting involved, did you know that London has a superb website that combines multiple projects in one place, gives updates and provides an easy way for residents to submit their input? Check out getinvolved.london.ca!
This site is updated frequently as projects move through various stages. Find out about Council’s Strategic Plan 2019-2023, that will guide London’s decision-making process. If you drive on Wonderland Road check out the Discover Wonderland project and provide input on the section from Sarnia Road to Southdale Road West. What do you think about Bike Share in London? How about the plans for our beloved Victoria Park? These important projects need Londoners’ input so that staff and Council have the information they need to recommend and decide upon and will shape the future of our city for years to come.
With spring on the way, longer days and warmer weather, I look forward to an exciting month! I encourage residents to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 226-927-0439 to discuss concerns, issues or what’s happening in their neighbourhood!
