CRBA MEETING: In very exciting news, we’ve confirmed the details for the September public meeting of the Corktown Residents & Business Association.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 8 at the Little Trinity Church Annex at 403 King East. That’s the renovated historic storefront on King just east of Parliament Street. Find us upstairs.
The meeting will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. All Corktown residents and friends are welcome – it’s a great opportunity for neighbourhood newbies to get to know what’s going on.
On the agenda this month, in addition to a host of local updates on important issues, will be a presentation from the StopGap Foundation. With their Community Ramp Project, StopGap provides a great service to local businesses, helping them become more accessible. We’re excited to hear about how StopGap can help local businesses.
