We said we would host a party to kick off memberships, and it was better than we could have imagined! Engaged citizens from all walks of life joined us at The Common to kick start the official membership sign ups, talk about the idea, buy t-shirts, and raise a glass to the potential of our city.
On the walls and tables, we asked for input along the entire line (on a giant map) and on specific areas of the Line like the High Level Bridge. We held a t-shirt raffle to kick off fundraising towards future High Level Line activities including awareness, advocacy, and design studies. It was a lot of fun, so thank you to all who came out.
We couldn't believe the turn out! The place was packed, and we loved hearing questions from all the guests. Commonly asked questions were about LRT alignment (which is still up the air as Centre LRT plans are in the works), and wondering how to help out. We'll explore some of these topics in upcoming news posts on this website.
Next steps: we are holding an AGM in the fall (likely October) and collecting names for future volunteer opportunities. Part of our AGM will be announcing and signing up sub committees.
