Have your say in the projects of tomorrow at the Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury's Project Impact Community Celebration, March 8, at the YMCA Parkside Centre.
Project Impact is an exposition of sorts, comprised of community members with varying projects or initiatives, that they believe will improve Greater Sudbury.
Residents are encouraged to learn more, vote for their favourite and make financial contributions to the projects of their choosing if they have the means to do so.
Charitable receipts are available for donations of $50 or more.
Those looking to participate but unable to attend in person, are encouraged to cast their vote online or at any local library March 8-22. (https://projectimpact.ca/)
Funding will be allocated to qualifying projects according to the feedback received during that time.
"Yet again, we are seeing the community coming out with great neighbourhood projects in Sudbury. Let's help make them happen," said Sharon Roy, a volunteer with Project Impact in a press release.
"The diversity of applications and applicants is really wonderful to see. We have had applications from Capreol to Coniston to Chelmsford, and beyond," she went on to say.
"There are communities providing habitat for beneficial animals and insects, seniors using locally produced berries to make jam for other seniors, youth designing and installing educational signage along Junction Creek, and communities creating gardens for one another."
The Project Impact Community Celebration will take place Sunday 1-3 p.m. at the YMCA Parkside Centre, with project presentations from 1:15-2 p.m.
There will be free refreshments as well as a craft table for kids of all ages.
Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury is a grassroots network of individuals who share a vision of Sudbury as a green, healthy and engaged community.
