Ensuring Lethbridge is an attractive and healthy city.
We all want what’s best for this city we call home, as we continue to ensure that it is an attractive and healthy place for people to live, work, and play.
Our physical community spaces, and how we approach land use and development is inherently linked to our people, services, and businesses.
Through connected and compassionate people, efficient services, and resilient businesses, we will have a stronger community.
Natural Spaces and Areas
We have so many great spaces to explore in this city. I’m committed to preserving and enhancing our natural spaces and areas, and the interconnectivity of our river valley, parks, recreational areas, and open spaces. This includes:
- Ensuring we’re caring for our urban forest, much like I did when I helped community groups advocate for the treatment of elm scale.
- Ensuring accessibility and future interconnectivity as we improve and build parks, pathways, and recreational areas, and consider year-round outdoor activity development for these areas.
- Asking that we build and plan for future sustainability and for our geography.
What does this mean for you? That we’ll all be able to get out and enjoy our green spaces year-round and know that the City is planning, planting, and building for our environment.
We have so many great spaces to explore in this city including our downtown core. Just as Lethbridge is a hub for our region, our downtown core should be a vibrant hub for our community.
I’m committed to helping support and create a vibrant downtown that becomes a hub for:
- Safe, secure, and diverse housing opportunities
This would include supporting current and new strategies for investment and attraction to our downtown.
This also includes a commitment to supporting strategies for those experiencing homelessness, those experiencing addictions, and safety in our community.
What does this mean for you? You’ll be able to enjoy a vibrant and active downtown space.
I’m committed to ensuring that we’re taking care of Lethbridge’s new and established neighbourhoods equally. This includes supporting:
- The creation of neighbourhood associations and groups
- The creation of Area Structure Plans for all neighbourhoods in our city
What does this mean for you? You will have a local, neighbourhood group to connect with and support you when it comes to:
- Becoming part of or being part of a neighbourhood
- Collaborating with other city neighbourhoods
- Liaising with the City of Lethbridge and other service organizations such as Lethbridge Police Services
- Advocating on behalf of your neighbourhood
- Planning for the future of your neighbourhood
