I have been following the Lakeview Waterfront Connection Environmental Assessment project for some time.
Many other people are more involved with the details and more knowledgeable about the project than I am. My role, as a volunteer, is primarily to offer one means, among many others, for residents to learn more about the project.
Communications and community engagement
I like following this project because the level of community engagement that is evident impresses me, as does the quality of the communications related to the project. Such things require plenty of thought and planning on the part of the management team.
I’m especially impressed by the fact that input from the community is indeed taken into account – in theory as well as in practice – in the development of the project.
Such things are a strong source of motivation for me, in my volunteer work in posting items of interest to my website.
I’m pleased that many visitors to the Preserved Stories website (as indicated by emails and site statistics) like to share their views about topics such as the sand beach between Etobicoke Creek and Applewood Creek.
Background about this project – and the waterfront areas affected by it – can be found in the Etobicoke Creek Category at the Preserved Stories website.
In the event you are new to the Etobicoke Creek story, the following post provides a quick overview:
The May 2013 Jane’s Walks in Long Branch both began at the mouth of Etobicoke Creek:
