Meet the Citizens' Assembly and help shape the future of Grandview-Woodland
The 48 members of the Citizens' Assembly were randomly selected from among over 500 local volunteers. These local residents are tasked with learning about the planning process, examining different directions for neighbourhood development over the next 30 years and proposing recommendations to City Council that will shape the next Grandview-Woodland Community Plan.
This is an opportunity to give the Assembly members feedback on their draft neighbourhood-wide recommendations, and discuss some of the 'sticky' issues with members and your neighbours.
