Hi Everyone,

Hope you’re all having a great summer!

Just touching base to ask you for your help with recruiting volunteers for our summer event taking place in two weeks, Saturday, August 26 & Sunday, August 27th, 8am-8pm both days.
Would you reach out to your community association, sport teams, organizations in your respective areas, family, friends and neighbours to ask people to give us a hand. We have some volunteers, but we need more.

The FUSE 2017 Festival Guide will,be in the Kitchissippi Times this Thursday, so ck it out. Lots of family fun and frolic for kids of all ages!  We really need the community to pitch in though.

People can register directly on line at www.westborovillage.com/fuse/volunteer This will take them directly to our Logistics company’s website, Kamp Operations, and they can sign up there.

Really appreciate you getting the word out. And thank you in advance for your help.

Hope to see you all again soon.

Warm Regards,

Our Community Association to the west of McKellar Park, Carlingwood Community Association has asked us to circulate the following petition regarding the proposed Kristy’s restaurant development.

16 06 2017
Hello my name is Chad Humeniuk and I am the president of the CarlingWood Community Association (CCA). 
Please consider signing our online petition to help communicate to our Councillors and Planning Staff that the proposed Kristy’s development is not in keeping with our neighbourhood or our feedback! 

Approval of the proposed 24-storey development at the Kristy’s restaurant location will set a precedent for future buildings along Richmond Road for the Community Design Plan (= max heights) is being approved AT THE SAME TIME. 

We are prepared to tolerate 19-storeys with ACTIVE frontage (not sitting on top of sidewalk) that is in keeping with our mature neighbourhood. 24-storeys with zero frontage is NOT OK. 


Please feel free to distribute to friends and neighbours. We are pushing to get your support by June 23rd, 2017.
Thanks – Chad

President – CCA
