Dear Councillor Streatch,

I am writing to invite you to LWFRA Community Meeting that we are holding on 11th March 2019 tentatively scheduled for 7pm.  As you are aware we have an active community who are interested and concerned about the future funding for many programs in the local area as a result of the actions that you and HRM Council have taken over the past year.  You have made assurances to myself, the LWFRA Board and HRM Council that the local community will be engaged in the proposed changes so that the full impacts of decisions made by the council are transparent to the local community.  The community meeting should provide a good forum for you to engage a significant proportion of the local population and articulate the proposed changes and the impacts on community programming.

Your participation will be greatly valued by myself and the LWFRA Board as you will be able to clarify points of concern that have been raised in the past and hopefully provide answers to those organizations that are directly affected so that they are better positioned to plan for the future and continue to support the needs of the community.   

I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.    

Yours sincerely,

Marni Tuttle

President – LWFRA
