Urban League AGM - with speaker Geoff Cape, founder of Evergreen

Thursday, June 29, 6 – 9 p.m.
Aeolian Hall, 795 Dundas Street (at Rectory), London

Join the Urban League of London for their last meeting until the fall with guest speaker Geoff Cape, Founder and CEO of Evergreen, which connects, people, natural and built worlds to make cities flourish. The Urban League (founded and flourishing since 1969!) - believes that strong and connected neighbourhoods are the buildings blocks of a vital, successful, and sustainable city. They believe that an engaged and informed citizen is the foundation of these strong and connected neighbourhoods in London.

Anne-Maria Sanchez is this year’s winner of the U.L.’s Green Umbrella Award, for her work, which includes, Women and Politics London and membership on the city’s Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-oppression Advisory Committee.

The Wood Street Park Food Forest project will be awarded the U.L.'s Green Brick award.

Congratulations! and thanks to Sanchez and to all involved in the WSPFF project for your practical and important work!

There will be music and poetry too! Time for conversation! And the business part of the meeting!

Urban Agriculture Strategy - going to Planning and Environment Committee July 17/17

Monday, July 17, meeting starts at 4:00 p.m.
London City Hall, council chambers

A little bird mentioned to CGL webkeeper that the anticipated date is July 17 for London’s urban agriculture strategy to be presented for the first time to Planning and Environment Committee.  Schedule changes may bump it; such happens.
The agenda for the meeting comes out online Wed. July 12, noon.  (main agenda page here)
If you want to put a comment in writing and get it included as an “added” you have to get that in electronically by Friday, July 14, 9:00 a.m. to Lauren Kucera, lkucera@london.ca  (committee secretary).
Not a lot of time to read a report and comment with intelligence so that your comment is on record.
Things are going to be set up so that you can comment on the report after this, however, supposedly, I guess (to paraphrase Red Green).
Note also:  agenda items on PEC or other committees may be juggled around ... so, if a time is given for the Urban Agriculure strategy to be brought forward for discussion by committee, that might change.  It is unlikely that it would be a priority item, so something relating to a controversial building development could easily be first.
