Coali­tion wants to hear about ‘needs’

The Sudbury Star - - NEWS - STAR STAFF sud.edi­to­rial@sun­media.ca

What do you need in your com­mu­nity? Safe places to walk and bike? A com­mu­nity gar­den? What­ever it may be, Coali­tion for a Live­able Sud­bury wants to hear from you.

You are in­vited to a com­mu­nity drop-in on Satur­day from 2-4 p.m. at Myths and Mir­rors Vic­tory Park Stu­dio, 496 Frood Rd. in the Dono­van. Share your thoughts with words and draw­ings on colour­ful felt leaves. This is a fam­ily friendly ac­tiv­ity and snacks will be avail­able.

A sec­ond com­mu­nity drop-in will take place on Thurs­day, Nov. 23, at 6:30 p.m. at the South End li­brary, 1991 Re­gent St. If you are un­able to at­tend, you can still share what’s im­por­tant to you on a short on­line sur­vey at live­able­sud­bury.org.

Your pri­or­i­ties will help guide the work of the Coali­tion for a Live­able Sud­bury as they un­der­take projects in the com­mu­nity and ad­vo­cate for pos­i­tive change.

As you are think­ing about what you need in your com­mu­nity, you might get in­spired with a great idea for a small, but awe­some com­mu­nity project. Project Im­pact can sup­port you in mak­ing it hap­pen. Come talk about your project ideas or get help with your Project Im­pact ap­pli­ca­tion at the drop-in.

“We’re ex­cited to see the first ap­pli­ca­tions com­ing in, and are ea­ger to see more and sup­port peo­ple in mak­ing good things hap­pen in their neigh­bour­hoods,” Sarah Allen, who is co-or­di­nat­ing this round of Project Im­pact, said in a re­lease.

Project Im­pact is ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for small com­mu­nity projects that can make a big dif­fer­ence in your neigh­bour­hood. Find out more and down­load the ap­pli­ca­tion at pro­jectim­pact.ca.
