Residents' Groups and Representatives

Residents’ groups offer an opportunity for residents to participate in decision-making for their neighbourhood, and are part of or have formal recognition by the City Council. Community Boards and Council representatives are elected positions by ratepayers and Resident Associations are voluntary and open to all citizens who live or own property within its boundaries.

Most groups are concerned with issues that affect the quality of life in their community. This can include issues such as land use, crime prevention, streets and parks. Such groups can also strengthen person-to-person contact by organising events that bring the citizens of the area together.
