Boyle Street 2021
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our virtual AGM on December 2nd, 2020. Thanks as well to those who joined us on January 12th, 2021 for an open conversation with Councillor Scott McKeen about the past, present, and future of Boyle Street.
We are very excited to have a new board with a huge variety of skills, gifts and abilities as well as dreams for the neighbourhood. The current BSCL Board of directors is:
- Madeline Lawrence (President)
- Kris Partington (Vice-President)
- Dara Barnhardt (Secretary)
- Karen Jackson (Treasurer)
- Joanna Wong
- Jonathan Lawrence
- Aaron Barnhardt
It is an exciting time for Boyle Street and there has never been a better time to become involved. Stadium Yards and the adjacent Stadium LRT station renewal are quickly transforming the north edge of Boyle Street and we look forward to welcoming new residents, businesses, and visitors to the area.
The Board and our City partners would also like to thank all the folks who responded to the Boyle Street Renewal online survey. The upcoming City-driven renewal will focus on residential roads, replacement of street lights, sidewalks, curbs, and gutters, and examine opportunities to improve how people walk, bike, drive, and gather in Boyle Street. While we are early in the process we invite residents, business owners, and others with an interest in co-creating a vibrant Boyle Street to participate in the concept, design, and building phases.
While the board will be focused on a range of initiatives, we want to continue to encourage all residents to bring their interests and skills to the common spaces of the neighbourhood. A focus of this board will be providing partnerships and resources to those who want to get involved. One of the best tools for us to stay connected to our friends and neighbours is through the Next Door App which is easy to use and functions as a communication platform for the neighbourhood. Download the app and get connected today.
The board is thrilled to be serving you and we look forward to connecting, dreaming, and co-creating the future of Boyle Street in 2021.
