On November 8th, 2017, Happy City held a neighbourhood forum at St. Michael and All Angels Church in Kenmount Terrace.
Following the 2017 municipal election, Happy City St.John’s was approached by Ward 4 City Councilor Ian Froude, who requested that Happy City facilitate a neighbourhood discussion in Kenmount Terrace. This discussion was initiated by members of the Kenmount Terrace community who asked Councilor Froude to host a town hall discussion in which neighbourhood issues could be presented.
An open invitation was offered to all residents of Kenmount Terrace and owners of neighbouring businesses via social media channels belonging to Happy City and Councillor Froude, the Happy City membership list, organic media, and word-of-mouth. An invitation was also extended to all city councilors via Councillor Froude.
There were approximately 45 residents in attendance. In attendance from City Council were Mayor Breen, Deputy Mayor O’Leary, Councillor Froude, Councillor Burton, and Councillor Hickman. The event included introductions from Happy City, Mayor Breen, Councillor Froude, and Kenmount Terrace resident John Fitzgerald, table discussions, a mapping exercise, and a group debrief.
