Ward 4 Community Conversations

’’Community Conversations’ was an idea I implemented to engage our residents in meaningful conversations and to provide useful information while we continue to grapple with the physical distance regulations that the pandemic demands of us.  

Thank you to the many residents who tuned in to the April Community Conversations event that we hosted. Our guest speaker, Metrolinx provided detail regarding the plans for the Yonge North Subway extensions that will end with 2 stations in Richmond Hill in the Yonge and Highway 7 area.

This plan has been a long time coming and is still a number of years away from completion but the plans are progressing. There are many exciting opportunities included in this plan for Richmond Hill but there are also a number of issues that our community needs to discuss.

I appreciated the many questions that participants were able to ask and receive answers at this virtual meeting.

We hope that you can join us for all of our future Community Conversations starting with the May meeting. Did you know that Public Works week is May 16-22 this year? Join me in celebrating all that the Richmond Hill Public Works team does by participating in the next Community Conversation, May 27th, 7:30-8:30pm. 

We will host Richmond Hill Public Works staff and hear about “A Day in the Life” of Public Works. From Richmond Hill’s roads & parks to our water & trees, you may be surprised at the many different ways we are all supported by the Public Works team!
