A safer Carlington: Lessons from Hintonburg

November 7th, 2012 Comments off

Cheryl Parrott, Hintonburg community activist and our November guest speaker.

The CCA is pleased to invite you to join us next Tuesday evening for our November general meeting, featuring guest speaker Cheryl Parrott, a long time volunteer and community activist in Hintonburg and current co-Chair of the Hintonburg Community Association's Security Committee.

For years, Cheryl has been a tireless advocate for safer, cleaner streets and a better Hintonburg. She has worked with the Ottawa Police Service, local businesses, landlords and community members to push for changes that slowly but surely encouraged positive development and an improved Hintonburg.

The CCA has identified building a safer Carlington as one of our key community priorities. Stopping the spread of graffiti, working with Neighbourhood Watch, the Ottawa Police Service and other partners are important first steps. Join us for a short presentation  about Hintonburg's experience fighting back against criminal activity in their community and find out what you can do to make a difference here in Carlington.

Following Cheryl's presentation, the CCA will elect a new board member and provide an update on planning for upcoming community events like the CCA Holiday Potluck and the 2013 Carlington Cup.

We look forward to seeing you Tuesday evening.

Date: Tuesday, November 13
Time: 7pm-9pm
Location: Alexander Community Centre, 960 Silver Street
