Representatives of 25 Community Groups seek early meeting with Mayor Robertson
The Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods would like to thank all the participants in this year’s election for their hard work and efforts to better the City we all love.
We look forward to working with the elected Council and Mayor in helping to establish a better relationship between the city and its neighbourhoods.
Our recently developed Principles and Goals document was held up by many candidates as a blueprint for solving this issue, and was endorsed by all parties except Vision.
We appreciate the Mayor’s apology for mistakes made and his promise to do better. Certainly we want to collaborate with Vision Vancouver to ensure that neighbourhoods continue to be the buildings blocks of our city’s future.
We will be contacting the Mayor shortly to arrange a meeting with him at his earliest convenience. We look forward to a new relationship with the Mayor and Council, one which is beneficial to both groups, and, most importantly, beneficial to the best interests of the City of Vancouver.
