The Transportation Master Plan at was approved as proposed but the mayor indicated that the City will study a connection, as long as it does not compromise service to the south. This is satisfactory to the FCCA. Should you have concerns, please contact transportation@FindlayCreek.ca

by FCCA | 1 Comments

The FCCA is very concerned about a possible delay in the construction of the elementary school. You may also have heard Mark Fisher, our OCDSB trustee, in the news advocating for the school

We are working hard to advocate for the school in Findlay Creek.

 

  1. We have put in a formal request to the Board of Education asking for the FC accommodation review to start this year. MPP Lisa Mcleod and Mark Fisher have also send a letter to that effect and support our request for the review.
  2. We are inviting parents, FCCA members and local school supporters to sign a petition and complete a survey so that we can get a more accurate picture of how many children will benefit from a school in Findlay Creek.

Show your support - fill out a survey and sign the petition!

  • Friday, May 11, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
    Fred Barrett Arena, Lions Hall
    or
  • Answer the door when volunteers go door-to-door to connect with the people who couldn’t make it on May 11

We are also looking for volunteers to help canvas the neighbourhood.

For info, to volunteer to canvas or to ask a question, contact schools@FindlayCreek.ca.
