Registrants will receive a pre-work package containing materials to be reviewed in advance of the meeting. To ensure a broad and diverse representation of our population, some personal information will be collected, which is protected under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
Childcare, language interpretation and transportation services may be provided based on the number of requests received at the time of registration.
Call 311 or visit www.citywindsor.ca to learn more.
** I cannot stress how important this meeting is. These “workshops” will set the tone for the next four years. If you care at all about heritage, make sure you attend and let them know. This is our chance to put built heritage and a new museum/archives on the front burner.
Pre-regstration is not nessecary, just show up at your ward meeting at the date and time shown above.
