Since my last update in the Breezes, the Ward 2 Neighbourhood Association Council met for the first time at City Hall. We had representatives in attendance from all six Ward 2 neighbourhoods and we have committed to meeting once every other month. This will not only be an opportunity for me to check in with these neighbourhood and community associations, but also for them to collaborate and support one another. In late February, the Ward 2 Team will begin setting up other community councils and we’ll share information about them in future issues.
In other news, our website launch was delayed slightly but we hope you’ve now had a chance to check it out at www.ward2hamilton.ca, read our February 2023 newsletter, and sign up to receive future newsletters. We will be using our website and newsletters, in conjunction with regular updates on social media, to continue to communicate with North Enders.
In the spirit of communicating, the first Ward 2 Town Hall will be held in the Beasley neighbourhood at the Beasley Community Centre, at the corner of Wilson Street and Ferguson Avenue North, on Wednesday, March 8 at 7:00pm (the usual time for monthly BNA meetings). All Ward 2 residents are welcome to attend. At the Town Hall, The Ward 2 Team will touch on some of the things that have been happening at City Hall, what we’re hearing from Ward 2 residents, and review specific issues impacting folks in the Beasley neighbourhood. There will be some time for questions at the end, but we will have a hard stop at 9:00pm.
As always, the Ward 2 Team is here to support you. Please reach out to the Ward 2 Team at Ward2@hamilton.ca or through our office phone number at (905) 546-2197.
