You’re invited to join your Ward 2 City Councillors, James Gordon & Rodrigo Goller and our special guest, Gail Hoekstra, the Executive Director of Guelph’s Drop In Centre. At this town hall we will be discussing the Drop In Centre’s plans to purchase the Parkview Motel (located at the corner of Woolwich Street and Marilyn Drive, Guelph), to create permanent supportive housing.
We ask that you please submit your questions in advance to James (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rodrigo (email@example.com), so we can allow enough time during the meeting to address everyone’s questions and concerns.
This meeting will be hosted online using the City of Guelph’s online meeting platform. Please connect a few minutes before the meeting starts, to familiarize yourself with the meeting platform. If you have any trouble joining us online, you can also call into the meeting by phone. Here are the details:
