DUKE Eats Festival and Movie in the Park

My office partnered with DUKE Heights BIA again to host the DUKE Eats Festival & my annual Movie in the Park. We had the largest turnout ever this year! It was great to connect with families and support local food vendors. Many thanks to CUPE Local 416 for their help with the setup to watch Encanto.

I also want to thank residents for attending the virtual Community Consultation Meeting for 20 Broadoaks Drive and 11 Catford Road.
