South Mountain Planning Team continues community development:Monthly meetings connect residents of Barnstown, Butler, Chapel East and Chapel West neighbourhoods

The South Mountain Planning Team meets each month to discuss community strengths and needs, and to connect with neighbours and community partners.

The team consists of the neighbourhoods of Barnstown, Butler, Chapel East and Chapel West.

Community development work began in early 2016. East Hamilton Kiwanis Non-Profit Homes and Victoria Park Community Homes have committed to continue this work and deepen it with a stronger understanding of community development, resident engagement, principles and effective strategies.

Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, 6:30-8 p.m, at the Kiwanis Homes Community Building, 595 Rymal Rd. E. from April to September, and Turner Park Library from October to March.
