URBAN FOREST STRATEGY
How do you feel about trees in Sidney? The Town is currently reviewing short and long term management of trees on both private and public land. You can find out more on the Town’s Urban Forest web page.
A big thank you to all 65 people who responded to our survey, everyone who commented on our draft submission, and the original 12 people who met October 21 to start talking about what the SCA should say about Sidney’s Urban Forest. You can read our final submission, survey results and notes from Oct 21 on the What We Do page.
The Sidney Community Association believes that every Sidney resident is part of creating the future of our town. We want the Community Association to be an instrument for residents’ hopes and concerns. We want to make sure Council hears from residents and that we focus on the issues that matter most to residents.
The 2018-2019 Board is looking forward to working with members, residents, neighbourhood groups and the variety of organizations and interests in our town. (see the Who We Are page to meet the Directors)
Sidney by the Sea has a beautiful waterfront, friendly and walkable neighborhoods, lovely gardens and green spaces, interesting local shops and a unique ‘small town’ feel that is precious to residents and visitors alike. Protecting what all residents value in our town, as it grows, is a core value for the Association. Another core value is respectful, constructive discussion about municipal affairs.
The Association became a registered Society in 2016. We are dedicated to enhancing transparency and accountability in municipal government. We advocate for adherence to the Official Community Plan and a strong role for residents in any changes to the OCP.
We are funded only by membership fees and donations.
