TWBCA September 2013 Newsletter
In this Newsletter:
It’s a brand new year for the West Bend Community Association. Our Summer break is over, and its time we direct our attention back to local matters. There are a lot of things going on in our West Bend neighbourhood, and plenty of opportunities to get involved.
Our first meeting of the new session will be an opportunity to get caught up on local issues and to set priorities for the year ahead. If you are interested in participating in community activities this is a good meeting to attend. Similarly, if you have a local cause (or an idea for a local cause) bring it to the meeting to raise awareness and build support.
If you are unable to attend the meeting that does not mean you cannot get involved. If there is anything you’d like raised at the meeting or if you have any questions please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up for our mailing list and encourage others to do the same. We send out a mailing once or twice per month with notices of local events, public meetings, or anything else of general interest to the community. If there is something you would like included, send us an email at the address above.
We are always seeking to recruit new members and increase our presence in the Community. Please have a look at the attached info & membership form and consider supporting the Association for the upcoming year. We are an entirely volunteer organization and our funds are used only for permits, application fees, and to support activities that promote the Association and our causes. Annual membership is $10.00 per person.
There are currently two significant development proposals with the City for our neighbourhood:
2376 Dundas St W – just north of the Crossways This is a large development proposal, with two towers of 26 and 9 storeys in height and 389 residential units. Planning staff will be bringing forward a staff report on this proposal this November.
2803 Dundas St W – The lot @ Dundas and Indian Grove The developer is making some changes to their proposal based on community feedback. The scale of the development is a 7-9 storey condo with ground level retail along Dundas. Planning staff will be brining forward a report in November for this proposal as well.
