Community Objective Workshops

Your Team Ward 9 will be hosting Community Objective Workshops (loving known as COWs) in all of our great neighbourhoods throughout 2018.

We first started facilitating COWs in January 2016 and completed all the Ward 9 communites by early 2017. The goal was to connect the needs and concerns of residents, businesses and service provider with the larger strategic goals of the Ward 9 office.

The Community Objectives Workshops were a huge success!

We promised two deliverables coming out of each COW:

  1. Raw Data Reports - documenting all your questions, comments and concerns;
  2. 2013-2107 Strategic Report - distilling the information collected in each COW and connecting it to what your Team Ward 9 is doing in the short, medium and long term. 

Read the Ward 9 Strategic Report

To better understand the goals and objectives of Gian-Carlo and your Team Ward 9 (and what we are doing to tackle the most pressing issues in each of our neighbourhoods) check out the 2013-2017 Ward 9 Strategic Report

Please remember that at the time of writing this report the Ward 9 neighbourhoods Gian-Carlo represented were different than they are today.  With the changes to the ward boundaries as of Election Day 2017 we are eager and excited to facilitate these workshops in all our new neighbourhoods. 


Great Neighbourhoods

As anyone who’s heard me speak, read anything I’ve written or had the terrible luck of running into me at a cocktail party over the past seven years knows, I’ve had a pretty singular focus as the Councillor for Ward 9 on building Great Neighbourhoods
