Invitation - Community Information Meeting "Crystal Beach Then and Now" Project

Hi Everyone,

We are reaching out to all residents and businesses of Crystal Beach to join us for an information-sharing meeting on a new project initiative being launched in 2015 "Crystal Beach Then and Now".

Friends of Crystal Beach, Crystal Beach Business Improvement Association and the Beautification Committee have formed a collaborative partnership to work with Crystal Beach residents on this project.

Components of the project include restoration, landscaping and beautification of Queen's Circle, public spaces, businesses and homes located between Erie, Ridgeway, Rebstock and Elmwood, with incentives and prizes to encourage community involvement, as well as adult and youth photo contests, historic walking tours and an end of summer reunion/celebration to award and honour the efforts achieved by the community.

We want to share background on the initiative, get your input and ideas to include in the project, and pull together volunteers to work on the Project Committee with the lead partners. Please join us:
