Town and Gown Committee

The Town & Gown Committee was established to provide a forum for stakeholders to address issues of common concern that may include neighbourhood development/community relations, housing, the environment, economic activities, charitable/volunteer programs, recreational and cultural events, and health and safety issues. This group has been established as an informal body to facilitate discussion.
