A reminder that the Growing Conversations Resident Association Roundtables begin next Tuesday in Scarborough. You all should have received a postcard invitation to these events, but it is my understanding that some groups have not. The e-mail list that I am working with is far from complete, so if you know of any others who would benefit from this information, please pass it along to them.
In case you are unfamiliar with Growing Conversations, it is a process aimed at improving Community Planning in Toronto through better, more effective engagement. There's lots of information and opportunities to provide feedback on our website: www.toronto.ca/growingconversations.
The Resident Association Roundtables have been set up in recognition of the fact that many of you are intimately familiar with the engagement process in Toronto, and therefore uniquely qualified to provide us with valuable insights on what works and what can be improved upon. If you are available, I would encourage you to come out and ensure that those insights are shared with us.
The Roundtables will occur on the following dates and times:
Scarborough District: Tuesday, October 14th at McGregor Park Community Centre (7-9 pm)
For details and to register: https://growingconversationsscarborough.eventbrite.ca
North York District: Thursday, October 16th at North York Central Library (7-9 pm)

Toronto District: Tuesday, October 21st at the 519 Community Centre (7-9 pm)

If you are unable to attend, we would still like to hear from you. There are plenty of opportunities to engage with us online, including through an online survey and using a new engagement platform that the City is using called MindMixer, which blends engagement with social media. You can access those opportunities here: http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=c58066413f8c6410VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD
Thanks, and hope to see many of you over the coming weeks.
