I hope that many of you have had the chance to kick back and relax during the beautiful season we’ve had so far. I know we all enjoy the opportunity to spend time with family and friends during the sunny weather, but another benefit of the favourable skies is that big projects in our neighbourhood are progressing very well. I’m pleased to report that the McOrmond and College overpass is scheduled to open in October, as is the new north bridge and all the connecting roadways. These projects are on time and on budget and will make a big difference in getting around our part of town. Please keep your eyes open for a special event in October to officially open the north bridge project.
In addition to a busy construction season, City Hall has also been a very busy place over the past few months. From discussions on taxis and Uber and the future of our landfill to early budget deliberations and bringing forward new traffic safety initiatives, there is lots happening to make our community an even better place to live. As always, it is an absolute honour to get to work at City Hall on behalf of you and your family and I look forward to discussing all of that work with you at either my 6th Annual Ward 10 Community BBQ or at one of my future Coffee With Your Councillor meetings. Thank you for giving my newsletter a read and I hope to see many of you in the weeks to come. I wish you all a safe and happy rest of your August!
All the best,
