We support and encourage efforts to build a community of healthy, connected neighbourhoods. Our goal is to help neighbourhoods build capacity through leadership development and efforts focused on bringing neighbours together. Support is provided to community initiatives such as creating a long-term community garden plan and securing an ongoing neighbourhood celebration grant program. Work in this area is coordinated with other departments to facilitate neighbourhood input to community planning and the design of community projects.
An example of a Maple Ridge Neighbourhood Project is the “Candy Cane Walk” in which South Haney residents and local groups collaborated and connected to brighten the path for families and the public to use when they went to the CP Holiday Train event. Congratulations to the neighbours and groups for creating and implementing this inspired idea! Let us help you with your idea.
