This is FANTASTIC! It's exactly what this city needs - citizen action! I've always advocated for that - I've even asked my local ward 4 councillor to get cracking on working with citizens interested in procatively bringing about positive change (and was accused of all sorts of non-sense!!) and we've got a derelict building here in the EAst end in Ward 3 at 1137 Main Street East that we've requested the city do something about. We've even offered suggestions. It's several years owing in back-taxes and the owner lives in Germany. The response from the Mayor's ofice and the city was less than encouraging. The councillor, Bernie Morelli, hasn't even responded. What does that tell us? - we've complained and no response - they don't care. Well the By-Law Crawl is an excellent idea that we're just going to have to start using in the East end as well. As the Co-Chair of the Crown Point Community Planning Team and representative of local residents, I am always looking for proactive measures that allow us to "live" our mandate of making the Crown Point area a better place to live. This is definitely one them. Thanks to Mr. Jelly for being such a concerned citizen. Thanks to everyone who ventured out and highlighted the need for real change at city hall - it's election year, let's make sure we make it count this time!!!
