PlanLocal Ward 2 Beautiful Streets and Spaces is an initiative of Ward 2 Councillor Jason Farr. He is asking residents to help identify where to invest infrastructure funding to make Ward 2 neighbourhoods more beautiful. To learn more about infrastructure funding, please see Area Rating Special Capital Re-Investment Reserve.
The PlanLocal process encourages residents to help guide Ward 2 infrastructure spending through citizen supported decision-making, involving three phases:
- Identify locations
- Propose physical improvements
- Build more beautiful streets and spaces in Ward 2
What kind of solutions can be submitted? They should be physical improvements to our streets and City-owned spaces. Ideal recommendations are for specific locations, like park improvements, greening of bump-outs, solar lighting, graffiti removal, and enhancements to existing playground equipment.
The PlanLocal Ward 2 Beautiful Streets and Spaces process offers a unique opportunity to make direct improvements to Ward 2 neighbourhoods.
