The Neighbourhood Mobilization Alliance (NMA) has been meeting for about 15 years. It was started when the Mt. Hope - Breithaupt Park area was a little "rougher" than it is now and it has brought together citizens, police, fire department and By-Law officials to talk about neighbourhood problems and issues.
Involvement in this group has risen and fallen as issues come and go. Currently we have a very active Neighborhood Association (NA) and the city of Kitchener has a call center for By-Law complaints and other issues. The police also have a Liaison Officer assigned to our area.
Fewer people have been coming to the NMA meetings and so a questionnaire was sent to all those on their asking residents how they wished to stay involved in these kinds of issues. As a result of feedback, the meeting this Wednesday, July 16 at 7 pm in the Conestoga Room at Kitchener City Hall will probably be the last meeting of the NMA in this form.
Many things can happen in the future, and if you are interested in participating in the dialog, then please come out.
