Neighbourhood Leadership

Consultation has concluded

Ribbon-cutting ceremony for a neighbourhood bulletin board.

We heard from residents through Love My Hood: Kitchener's Guide to Great Neighbourhoods that they would like information and training to help them make positive contributions to their neighbourhoods. As a result, the City of Kitchener is working with a group of residents and local organizations to develop a toolkit and workshop that will be available in 2020.

Please complete our survey to tell us what information and training would help you make your neighbourhood a better place.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.

Please provide your feedback by August 25.
