John Orlikow: Moving Forward Together – My Plan for River Heights / Fort Garry

By John Orlikow, October 6, 2014

The opportunity you have given me to be your voice at City Hall is something I am very grateful for. Allowing me to work for you, your family and your neighbours in the River Heights/Fort Garry Ward is a job that I love and take great pride in.


Since first being elected, I have continued to ask the important questions of Council, continued to focus on building on the uniqueness of our neighbourhoods and remained the effective, independent and effective voice you deserve in civic government.


Since I was first elected in 2009, I have worked hard on priorities that improve the River Heights/Fort Garry Ward, including:


? Getting more streets and back lanes repaired each year


? Building 15 new and upgraded play structures and improving green spaces throughout our community


? Making the Waverley Underpass a Council priority


? Assisting the Rady JCC to establish a non-profit daycare at the Grosvenor Fire Hall


? Securing $500,000 for Academy Road streetscaping


? Establishing a $1 Million community green space enhancement fund


I will continue to make sure that the River Heights/ Fort Garry Ward is an even better place for families to live. I pledge to:



-          Secure more funding to fix our streets and back lanes


-          Get the Waverley Underpass built so traffic moves around neighbourhoods


-          Protect and enhance our green spaces and urban forest


-          Strengthen our community centres


-          Building a new twin arena in the Ward


-          Fight for a more open, ethical and accountable City Hall that you can be proud of
