THE Seven Oaks School Division is hosting a town hall forum Monday evening on the proposed western extension of the Chief Peguis Trail.
The project requires public support if it is to be selected for funding by city council so it can go ahead in 2018, said a notice issued by the division about the 7 p.m. meeting at West Kildonan Collegiate.
It’s encouraging people in the area to attend the meeting, which will feature presentations about the extension followed by a question-and-answer session.
The division is in favour of the project because, it says, it would “increase the commercial tax base, which will increase provincial education funding and help put north Winnipeg on par, developmentally speaking, with other areas of the city. This means the likelihood of better facilities in our area for community members.”
