There is no mystery that we are facing a variety of growing challenges within our community — homelessness, safety issues, a Safe Consumption Site, a lack of social services, etc.
For A Better Cambridge has had the opportunity to engage with hundreds of residents as well as the leaders of a variety of community-focused non-government organizations, the City and Region as part of advocating for residents who love where we live.
The issues are complex and there are no simple solutions.
Join us for a critical and timely conversation to learn more, from the perspective of those who deal with these challenges on the front lines. Meeting over by 9pm.
Com and listen to a dialogue designed to offer clarity. Use the opportunity to get answers to your questions.
Let’s come together as a community of concerned citizens.
Presented by For A Better Cambridge, a grass roots organization of concerned Cambridge residents and businesses that want to see our city thrive and prosper.
Beyond this upcoming public information meeting, we have a few key concerns:
- the safety and security of residents in the downtown areas and surrounding neighbourhoods, school yards, and community parks
- the state of our downtown core, which could be cleaner, more vibrant, and more welcoming to residents and visitors
- appropriate support for the homeless, drug addicted, and those with mental health issues – while minimizing the impact on surrounding neighbourhoods and businesses
- an equitable distribution of support services across our community and the greater Waterloo region
