November 2019 - Community Report
It has been a year of impressive projects for St. Vital and a productive first year representing Royalwood, Bonavista and Sage Creek.
I have had the pleasure of working cooperatively with other area politicians to improve the kitchen at Niakwa Place School and the play structure at H.S. Paul School, both of which are home to many students from Royalwood.
In Bonavista, I have worked to address residents' safety concerns by having the 2- way stop at Warde and Boulevard de la Seigneurie converted to a 4-way stop.
In Sage Creek I am working with city staff and Qualico to extend Bishop Grandin to the East, as far as Boulevard des Hivernants, to create a new entry/exit point for this growing community.
In the coming year, I look forward to funding new recreation options in Sage Creek, and supporting the efforts of Save our Seine to upgrade Bois-des-esprits.
I am proud to have these flourishing neighbourhoods as part of the St. Vital Ward!
Grants from ward funds were allocated to:
Help repair the garage at Windsor Community Centre
Upgrade the play structure in the Dr. Rey Pagtakhan Park

$14,000 to Com-Span, located on Moore Avenue, for day-services for adults with developmental disabilities
