City Councillor Commits to Park Cleanup - ACORN Canada

City Councillor Commits to Park Cleanup

Posted December 6, 2011

15 Ottawa ACORN members from the Britannia chapter held a press conference and gave local City Councillors a tour of a derelict park this week as part of a community clean up effort. Mark Taylor, the neighbourhood’s City Councillor, signed a commitment to have city staff replace and improve broken lighting and garbage and recycling bins, as well as the overall upkeep for the park.

The event was held in Michele Park and leader member Cheryl Smith had this to say:

“we’ve met with the councillor and we asked for these things so we’re hoping that with the media’s help we’ll see faster results.”

The action was led by new member Jessica May, who showed the councillor around the park. The press conference was covered by the Ottawa Citizen, Ottawa Metro, Ottawa Sun, and the CFRA.
