The city is offering $1000 ‘micro-grants’ to neighbourhood groups within its Neighbourhood Improvement areas, which include both Weston and Mount Dennis. If you’ve got an idea, whip it together, and get to the meeting next Thursday.
To apply, local groups must have at least five participating members and be planning an event or activity open to the community.
Me, I’d like to see a food-truck festival on Weston Road in the summer, or a beer garden at the Farmers’ Market. Perhaps we could have a bike-repair and information party with veggie burgers and ice cream for all.
