Sold-out crowd for SERRA’s 2017 AGM

More than 150 interested people crowded into the Greenwood College School on May 8 for SERRA’s annual meeting. This year’s AGM, with its theme “Take Back Our Neighbourhood,” featured guest speakers Councillor Josh Matlow and Senior Planning Director Gregg Lintern, who updated residents on the state of play in the very busy Davisville Village. This year, we added to the very successful information booths introduced at the 2016 AGM. Among them were booths featuring City Planner Paul Farish and Midtown in Focus, LEAF, heritage, Davisville Village Greenways (DVG), developments such as the one proposed for 18 Brownlow/200 Soudan, T.A.N.G., tall homes, and so much more. Many thanks to Greenwood College School Principal Allan Hardy and his fine staff for hosting our group.
