Ward 6 Councillor Shad Qadri joined Mayor Jim Watson, leaders of local community associations, city staff, and interested residents October 17 to announce the city’s plan to acquire and protect a 5-hectare parcel of land, know as Shea Road Woods. Although currently privately owned, the land is frequented by nature lovers, dog owners and their pets, and others in the community. Funding for the purchase will come from the Environmental Resource Area Acquisition Reserve Fund, which City Council established to help acquire and protect features like Shea Road Woods.More info at: https://shadqadri.com/2017/10/17/the-future-of-shea-road-woods-at-planning-committee/
