As promised, the presentation that we gave and all of the information panels have been uploaded and are available here on the blog. Some files are very large, so please be patient when downloading. You can download these files either by using the “Project Downloads” sidebar on the right of this page (beneath the “Nov. 30 Open House” header), or by using the links at the bottom of this post.
After a bumpy ride back, we are now settled in Toronto and reflecting on Tuesday’s session – we thought that it went great and really appreciated the thoughtful comments and time that people have given to this project. There was a full-house turn-out of about 80 people (impressive for a dark, rainy night). We were most impressed with the cross-section of interests represented at the meeting and the many points of view expressed. It inspired a great discussion. Of course not everyone agreed on everything, but I think that we all agreed that Centretown is a great place, that it can be even better, and that this process can help to deliver some of the positive changes needed (with effort on everyone’s part).
We also wanted to apologize again for not having a fully accessible venue space for the event – that was a real shame and we were embarrassed about that oversight. We are already trying to secure a fully accessible event space for the third open house and think that you will be pretty excited with where we are planning to hold the next event.
Again – thank you for your help in shaping this plan for Centretown. We hope you will continue to provide feedback on the ideas and projects presented. Feel free to spread the word and collect other people’s views on some of these ideas. We also learned that some live-tweeting was going on at the event – great!!
