What would you like to see improved in Corktown?
When developers build more height or density than is allowed, they give an amount of money to the neighbourhood to compensate. This money is called Section 37 funds. This is a one time payment and can be used for updates to the community. So we would like to know what improvements are important to you! If interested, please fill in the Corktown Section 37 Fund Priority Survey. This survey will be open until Jan 31, 2017.
