What is the Kirkendall Neighbourhood Strategy?
The Kirkendall Neighbourhood Strategy is about connecting and engaging with people who live, work, learn and play in Kirkendall and developing a shared vision for their neighbourhood. This is created by working with community members and stakeholders within Kirkendall to identify, plan and lead the changes they want to see. It’s about understanding we all have assets and strengths that can help make our community a healthier and more vibrant place to be, and finding ways to support one another in building it.
A number of steps are involved in developing these ideas, and there are a number of ways community members can contribute to its development. This includes participating at special engagement events, attending meetings, sharing ideas and volunteering to help get the word out.
While funded by the City of Hamilton, the Kirkendall Neighbourhood Strategy is a community-led initiative. A Community Developer is tasked with supporting and facilitating the strategy, but ultimately it’s up to community members in Kirkendall to make it successful.
