Community asked to share their ideas

The project was created out of the "I Love Mission" sessions, which aims to improve arts and culture in Mission.

How do you connect with your neighbours?

The Cultural Resources Commission is developing a Neighbourhood Initiative to help facilitate events and bring residents together, and would like to collect ideas from residents who live here.

It can be anything that creates a sense of community, such as a block party or picnic at a park, explained Bronwen Sutherland, chair of the CRC.

The project was created out of the “I Love Mission” sessions, which aims to improve arts and culture in Mission.

“One thing we found out was that people felt there was a lack of community and sense of belonging,” said Sutherland, noting the word “community” is loosely used to define numerous groups, including neighbours, new mothers or students.

Everyone is invited to participate in the discussions and share their ideas.

The next meeting takes place Tuesday, May 5 at 7 p.m. at the Leisure Centre. For more information contact Bronwen Sutherland at
