How do we make sure there is a place for everyone in a changing #Kirkendall and how can we impact what that change might look like? Tell us by clicking on the image below.
We received 300+ submissions from our first round of engagement covering a wide number of issues and ideas.

A number of people expressed worry about how development projects and rent increases are impacting the neighbourhood. The changing nature of businesses on Locke St is also a concern.
People want to see the HAAA grounds improved upon with community input. There’s also a high priority on increasing the number of trees and protecting existing greenspaces and trails.
Speeding cars, traffic calming, bike lanes and pedestrian safety are issues expressed repeatedly.
There was a lot of apprehension about car break-ins and theft from private property. One solution was introducing a “neighbourhood watch” program.
People want more opportunities to celebrate their community and connect with each other. Some want a large Locke St type-festival, and others want small-scale block parties and other events, such as more movie nights and music in the park.
