Thirty residents joined our first virtual community meeting on September 24, 2020 which centered on the Peace Park Renovation Project and recent design voting results. We discussed the history of the park, our partnership with COGdesign, fundraising and grant applications, as well as the design development and community engagement. We also took the opportunity to answer questions, including those about the potential timeline of the project which could be well over a year from now depending on our access to funding.

Another important topic discussed was the need for invested community members to help us form a "Friends of the Peace Park" committee. If you are interested in being more involved with the Peace Park, please contact Coalition Director, Sarah Coughlin.

Please subscribe to our newsletter to stay in the loop of the project's progress and reach out to Ginaya Greene Murray with any questions. For a copy of the PowerPoint presentation, please visit:
