Quality of life: “Quality of Life may be the single most important factor in determining whether or not you want to attend College or University, raise a family, live or grow old in Greater Sudbury.

2018 Survey


Further revitalization of our playgrounds, active transportation trails to connect much of ward 7 and the City, finalizing the transit action plan to get more convenient transit for the ward’s residents and businesses, and more affordable housing for seniors so they can age in place and remain connected.

Only be working together will we be able to realize true change. The City can continue to invest in public transit and active transportation, even supporting the use of public transit by employees, but needs the continued buy-in from the business community as well.
Continue to release public agenda material a week in advance of meetings. Continue to support citizen-led initiatives as I have for the last 4 years both by gaining support from all of council in budget motions or through ensuring that funds continue to be available for neighbourhood capital projects.
Uphold the enhanced waterfront development provisions and requirements in our updated Official Plan.
As with any initiative, I am open to reviewing objective information about it which balances all factors.
I want to thank the Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury for the opportunity to complete this survey. I also want to thank the Coalition for their continued work in our community and always providing reasoned comments on planning applications, and at public hearings or consultations we have on any of our master plans or projects. I hear it all, but I think what sets the Coalition apart and above other local voices is its understanding that everything is not always possible all at once, but that the last 4 years have been a good example of progress on several fronts near and dear to the Coalition. So on that note, I sincerely thank you for this opportunity and hope that I get to spend another 4 years getting sound results for Ward 7, Greater Sudbury and the Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury!
