BWG Town Events & Announcements
Carrot Fest 2023 was a great success as it is one of Ontario largest festivals in Bradford West Gwillimbury. This year was my first Carrot Fest as a Councilor and I was proud to help kick things off at the official opening held on Friday night. A Town booth was setup in the middle of the 4 Corners, where I spent a number of hours handing out BWG swag, greeting residents and guests to Bradford. I also had a great time attending the many Vendor booths, taking in the activities and enjoying this Annual event with my family.
Community Retro Street Party
This year - the Annual Street Party group decided on raising funds for our Local Helping Hand Food Bank - together with the communities and sponsors support the preliminary numbers are in the range just over $9,000.00. This will help so many people in need, especially in a financial and economic hardship that has fallen on Canadians.
WARD 6 - Ongoing projects
Here is an update on what's going on in Ward 6 - BWG - Building a Better BWG starts here.
177 Church St. Project
The NEW Community Hub
The Community Hub was purchased by the town as a place to host, create and build community spaces for social businesses, and some much more added town services.
Currently the Helping Hand Food Bank, and Wow Living - Out of the Cold Cafe have been slated for occupancy when it opens.
A staff position has been budgeted for this building and design options for the space at the back of the building has been deferred to council to choose the best options for the community in this area.
When I walked to every home in Ward 6 this past Spring 2023, I asked the residents in and around the area what they would like to see be put behind 177 Church St. The answer was a park, splash pad, swings, community garden, a place where a daycare or summer camp could benefit from this commodity wwere the only suggestions supplied to me.
Next steps for the back area of 177 Church St. is that it is going to the Strategic Project Committee and then will go to council for recommendation.
177 Church St is scheduled to be finished around October/November 2023.
Raising Safety Protection in BWG
When I ran for election, I made getting BWG's fire protection up to the standard a priority, and when a solution was presented at the BWG 2023 Budget - This council voted unanimously in support of increasing coverage with the hiring of 20 new full time firefighters. I welcome these 12 new full time firefighters to BWG and thank them for their dedication to service in our town.
