URBAN FOREST STRATEGY – December 15 Deadline for feedback to SCA.
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.
Although it is the holiday season, we hope you can take 10 minutes to give us your thoughts before December 15! We have created a survey about how you want to be informed and engaged with trees in our community. Please click here to take the 4 minute survey.
The Community Association has also drafted recommendations based on a workshop we held with interested members. Now we need everybody’s comments to see if you agree with what we are saying on your behalf. Please click here to read the draft and send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org before December 15, 2018.
There still doesn’t seem to be an official photo of our new Council, so we are sticking with this informal election night one. Click here for the official election results on the Town’s Election page. Sidney had the second highest voter turnout in the region at 48%, up from 43% in 2014.
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.
