What would you like future housing, neighbourhood food systems, climate change response, neighbourhood parks and facilities to look like? What else is needed to make Vic West even better?
Dear Vic West Neighbour,
Between September 1 and October 31, 2016, you were asked to help build the vision and goals for the future of your neighbourhood.
We received feedback through an on-line survey (152 responses), a community workshop (50 participants), and sounding boards (455 ideas).
Read all the feedback and the engagement summary here.
