Kitchener Citizens for Livable Development, May 11, 9am – 12pm

Below is an invitation from the City of Kitchener. There will be a ‘new’ group called “Kitchener Citizens for Livable Development.” This is a response to all the development in Kitchener over the past few years and it would be very worthwhile to follow it.

This group is partly an extension of the MHBPNA Development group that met for several years under the direction of Catherine Owens. There is a section of our website with Development Committee information. Although our own committee is no longer active, all residents are encouraged to become involved in understanding and promoting sustainable, and “livable” development.

Please consider signing up for this session on Saturday.

Hello neighbours in Downtown Kitchener!  For the past few years, there has been a group called the Downtown Development Committee that has brought together people living in downtown neighbourhoods (mainly from Grand River Hospital to King/Ottawa) to learn about and respond to development issues.  We recently reviewed and revised our purpose and structure and are transitioning into a new group called Kitchener Citizens for Livable Development.  We would like to invite other interested residents to attend a planning meeting on Saturday May 11th.  Here are the details.

We invite you to join us for the morning on Saturday May 11 to learn about and work with us on transitioning from the Downtown Development Group to Kitchener Citizens for Livable Development.  Please use the EventBrite link to register, so that we know how many people are coming and who to expect.  Here are the goals for this meeting:

1.    Share the new Terms of Reference

2.    Engage neighbourhoods in KCLD

3.    Appoint a Chair/Co-chair

4.    Create an Executive Team to share work, according to priorities identified at the meeting (e.g. Secretary, Website Coordinator(s), monitors of Provincial, Regional, and local planning and development issues, etc.)

5.    Set dates/meeting times for 2024

6.    Finalize Pro-forma Agenda to be used as a template at each meeting

7.    Identify first steps in creating a common website
