Share Your Ideas

The Assembly wants to know what you think about the key issues facing community planning in Grandview-Woodland. Please share your knowledge and imagination.

Here’s how you can help the Assembly do its work

1. Share Your Ideas

If you have a particular issue that you want the Assembly to think about, please email us or mail us your idea. In Stage 2 (Winter 2014/2015), the Assembly is actively collecting ideas about initiatives or strategies to address key planning issues in the neighbourhood.

After review, we’ll post everyone’s submissions on our website. Please make sure your submission follows these Guidelines for Submissions:

  • Submissions should be clear and concise.
  • Submissions should be helpful to Assembly members in their deliberations
  • Submissions should avoid naming any individuals — whether positively or negatively.

2. Suggest Learning Resources

Members of the Assembly will be learning about key planning issues from a diverse set of perspectives. They’ll receive reading materials, hear from a variety of speakers (many recommended by Grandview-Woodlanders), and watch online videos.

What learning resources do you think would be helpful for Assembly members?

We’ll read everything you send us. A curated list of some of the best resources, representing diverse perspectives, will be posted on this website. Members will be encouraged to read, watch or listen to the learning resources that you submit.
