Call for Community Members

In July 2018, Council approved a modular housing project for women aged 19+ that have experienced or are at-risk of homelessness. Council also approved the establishment of a Community Advisory Committee to: (1) build and maintain positive relationships amongst the community, the building operator and the program partners; (2) facilitate information sharing and two-way communication; and (3) identify opportunities to welcome modular housing residents and involve them in the community.

The committee is looking to add two community members. To be eligible, you must abide by the committee terms of reference (see below link for terms); not be affiliated with a member association, group or organization (see terms); have an interest in the community; and live and/or work within the immediate radius of the housing site. Meetings will be from 6:30 to 8:30 pm and will be held on a monthly-basis for the first 10 months, with the first meeting scheduled for either February 26 or March 26, 2019. If interested, please send your completed application form (see below link) by February 13, 2019.
