MHBPNA Cultural Walk, September 30, Come join us
The MHBPNA is pleased to announce a culture walk, led by John MacDonald, in our area.
The main focus of the walk is the Weber Street Widening and how it will affect people in our neighbourhood. A new transit bridge will be built, businesses will be re-located or closed, houses will be torn down and these events will all affect how we travel to work, form neighbourhood communities and experience our lives in Kitchener.
Another topic will be about “living with regional transit.”
This walk is generously provided by John MacDonald as part of a “cultural prize” MHBPNA won at the Festival of Neighbourhoods a couple of years ago.
The walk will begin at Lippert Park at 1:30 and end there at 3:30. Lippert Park is located at Weber and Louisa Streets.
This will be “interactive” and we hope to have many neighbours attend and provide their perspective on Weber Street and how we walk though our area, places we visit etc.
The widening of the street and the construction of the transit hub will change our area forever and while it is mainly positive, it is difficult to imagine how profound the changes will be.
This walk is sponsored by the Mount Hope -Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood Association, but there are no limits on who can attend. Anyone who is interested in these issues is welcome.
Sunday, September 3o, Lippert Park, 1:30.
