Wellington-Harrington Action Plan
What Does an Action Plan Mean for Wellington-Harrington?
It has been 13 years since the last neighborhood plan was done for Wellington-Harrington. A lot has changed since then! The Wellington-Harrington Action Plan is all about hearing from you - what you value most about your neighborhood and what ideas you have to make it better. Throughout 2023 there will be many opportunities to share your thoughts with City staff and your neighbors. Sign up for the Wellington-Harrington mailing list below or keep an eye on this web page for more information on ways to be involved!
Second Community Meeting Recap
Thank you to everyone who joined us at our second community meeting on Wednesday, September 13th. If you couldn't make it, or were there and want a reminder, you can watch a recording of the presentation (Passcode: NPI_WH_M2) and review the slides here.
Stay Tuned for a Draft Plan This Fall
Next, we'll prepare a draft of the plan document. We'll need your feedback to be sure the vision, goals, and actions are setting us on course for the future Wellington-Harrington we all want to see. When the draft plan is done, we will post it on this webpage and send out an email to the project-specific e-mail list. Sign up for the e-mail list here.
