ABOUT THE PROJECT

From July 10 to October 31 we asked residents in Silver Springs: what would make Silver Springs a better place to live, work and play. They were then asked to choose their top three vision words from a list of word, or add their own, and explain why they chose that word.

The full report of what we heard during this engagement can be found here.

PROJECT BACKGROUND


The City created This is my neighbourhood to fully engage with community residents to create clear, compelling community visions that will help guide the delivery of City programs, services and small-scale infrastructure improvements within participating neighbourhoods. This is my neighbourhood gives residents a voice and encourages them to take an active role in shaping the future of their neighbourhood.

This is my neighbourhood began in 2015 with a group of 14 inaugural communities. As part of the This is my neighbourhood program, The City partnered with the first group of neighbourhoods to deliver more than 100 programs, services and small-scale improvement projects that residents requested. Overall, This is my neighbourhood will take place in 28 neighbourhoods over four years from 2015 to 2018.

Based on all the feedback, three vision statements were created for Silver Springs and we asked you to tell us which vision statement you like best. See below for results.

This vision will be used in the next step of the engagement when we work with you to come up with initiatives.
