Civic hospital open house: first thoughts

Civic hospital open house: tonight's open house reaction

For weeks I’ve been receiving your comments and thank residents for copying me on those. I haven’t yet provided any “formal” feedback to the City on the proposed site plan and on which I’m expecting to have to vote at the end of August and then again in early September.
