Get Involved!

volunteer-iconThe Piccadilly Area Neighbourhood Association (PANA) is looking to fill a few positions on the exec.  The executive is made of up 6 – 12 neighbours from Piccadilly Area who meet 8 to 10 times between January and November to plan social events for our community, such as the Clean & Green event, Porch Concert and so on.

The group also delves into specific local issues including City planning matters and developments such as the Adelaide Street CP underpass project, and others that come up in the community.

Becoming involved is a great way to give back, meet new people, and even hone new skills like member relations and event planning. Meetings are every 4-6 weeks and are kept to an hour to an hour-and-a-half, depending on the agenda.

Email join@piccadillyarea.ca if you are interested and include a little about yourself! Each notice of interest will be reviewed by the current exec members. We commit to being transparent throughout the process!

Ward 13 Candidate meet & greet

On Tuesday, August 14 we had the good fortune of having a number of candidates from Ward 13 and Ward 4 meet the neighbourhood at the beautiful new SKYE Health offices on Maitland. It was fairly informal, consisting of the opportunity for personal introductions and Q&A.

One of the key elements of concern discussed was petty crime and safety. This is of no surprise, if you follow our Facebook group, and it was valuable to tell future Councillors in person and hear their and perspectives.
