Every year, Ward 1 (Mostly Ainslie Wood and Westdale) is granted 1.5 million dollars to spend on projects that are meant to improve things that residents think need improvement.
The idea submission process for 2014 is now underway. Anyone who believes they’ve got a good idea can submit their proposal online at forward1.ca
Ideas can be submitted only until May 8th, 2014. After that, residents will have the chance to vote on which ideas to implement. Voting takes place from May 19th to May 31st, 2014.
Past project proposals have ended up funding things like bike lanes, school breakfast/lunch programs, recycling bins and spash pads.
If you’ve got an idea, give it a shot. This is a great opportunity to contribute to changing your community. Public chocolate milk fountain, anyone?
