A Summary from your Happy City Team
Happy City is pleased to present a synopsis of the presentation made by Elizabeth-Anne Malischewski at the Neighbourhood Summit from September 2018. The full web version is presented below.
Neighbourhood associations (NAs) are the building blocks of community. They bring neighbours together, foster trust, and allow residents to tackle civic issues important to them. They allow for easier communication with elected officials, and the power of numbers gives the requests of NAs more weight in municipal decision making. Sounds great, but how do you even begin?
